    Umbraco Custom ListView Layout - Re-using default layout

    Hi Peeps,

    I am creating a custom listview layout and I was just wondering if anyone knows the locations of the default listview html / css setup.

    I've seen a few tutorials regarding creating a custom listview but they generally start from their own html.

    I basically want to re-use the default listview and work from that. My changes are very minimal such as a couple of color changes based on data variants. I dont see the point of creating a whole new layout from scratch when I can work with whats already there.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Hi David

    I think the files you are looking for are located here:




    The styles are in a LESS file in the Umbraco source here:

    and these are compiled into a single minified css file:


    I'd tend to avoid updating the files directly in the Umbraco folder, they are hard to maintain through an Umbraco upgrade - but maybe you could perhaps copy the html into the app_plugins folder and use this as the starting point for your custom view?

    Hi Marc,

    Thanks. I think this is exactly what I'm looking for.

    Yeah I planned to do exactly how you suggested and copy the style / html out into my plugin and start from there.

    Kind Regards
