Using predefined themes

By 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 users with Manage Community or Customize Site permissions can see the Themes option under their user menu in the upper right corner of the User interface.
  2. Click Themes and select one of the Predefined themes, for example, Bamboo or Winter.
  3. If required, customize your chosen theme by clicking the blue dots next to each component and making changes.
    As you make changes, you see an instant preview of the updates.
  4. For a thorough look at your changes click Full Preview.
    You are required to save the changes before previewing.
  5. When you are finished making changes, click Save Theme, then clear the Publish theme on save check box to save the theme, but not publish it. This saves your work so that you can continue making theme changes later without affecting your current community.
    Alternatively, you can save the theme and publish it by selecting the Publish theme on save check box and saving the changes, which updates your community immediately.
