Using a Predefined Theme

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

  1. Click on your avatar in the upper right corner and select Themes. (Note that only with Manage Community or Customize Site permissions can see the Themes option under their user menu in the upper right corner of the end user interface.)
  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 blue 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.
