Export a Theme

Using the Customize Your Site theming interface, you can back up a copy, share, or transfer your saved themes to another Jive community using the Export a Theme feature.

When you export a theme using the out-of-the-box theming tool available in Jive versions 6.0 and higher, the application creates a zip file containing all of the theme's information, including its customized colors, images, and so on. The theme file is encrypted for security reasons, so you cannot further customize its contents.
  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. From the theming page, select Themes > Import/Export.
  3. Choose Export, and then select the theme you want to export.
  4. Select Save the file to save the theme as a zip file.
  5. The zipped file will download to your local file system.
  6. Now, you can import the zipped theme file to another Jive community (versions 6.0 and higher) using the Import a Theme feature.
