From the “Course Settings” link on the left sidebar, you can access the “Customize Website Theme” page (button in the upper right corner).
Per Course Custom CSS
To modify the CSS for your course, simply create a file named
override.css file and upload it under “Custom CSS” on this page.
This file will be stored in the
site directory for your course.
In this file you can change the background colors, fonts, etc.
If you edit the file directly, make sure that the
submitty_php user has read/write access to this file.

Adding Top, Left, Right, and/or Bottom Bars to Submitty
As illustrated on the “Customize Website Theme” page, you can
customize a frame around your Submitty course. Prepare
files for each panel of the frame you want to specify and upload these
files to the website. They will be stored here:
/var/local/submitty/courses/f18/sample/site/top_bar.html /var/local/submitty/courses/f18/sample/site/left_sidebar.html /var/local/submitty/courses/f18/sample/site/right_sidebar.html /var/local/submitty/courses/f18/sample/site/bottom_bar.html
Make sure that the
submitty_php user has read access to this files.
If you edit these files directly, make sure that the

Specifying Custom links in the Submitty Sidebar
Alternatively, you can specify additional links to appear in the Submitty sidebar for all users in your course. Create and save this a file with an ordered array of the additional links. For each link provide a Font Awesome icon, a URL (link), and title. Store the file within your course directory, for example:
