Using a Predefined Theme

Quickly create a professionally-designed community with just a few clicks. Using the Customize Your Site theming interface, you can select a predefined theme for your community such as Fall, Winter, and Bamboo. You can also use a predefined theme as a base design, and then make further changes to it.

  1. Click on your name in the upper right corner and select Customize Your Site. (Note that only community administrators and users with Home Page/Customize Site permissions can see the Customize Your Site option under their user menu in the upper right corner.)
  2. Click Themes > Predefined themes.
  3. Select a theme (Bamboo, Winter, and so on).
  4. You can further customize your chosen theme by clicking the dots next to each component and making changes. As you make changes, you'll see an instant preview of the updates. You can also click Full Preview, for a more thorough look at your changes.
  5. When you're finished making changes, be sure to click Save Theme. You'll have the option to save the theme, but not publish it (this will save your work so that you can continue making theme changes later without affecting your current community), or, you can save the theme and publish it, which will update your community immediately.
