What is a Theme? ¶
Themes change the look and feel of your site. Maybe you're partial to mild colors, or maybe you prefer a classic black and white design, or perhaps you'd like a bold site that stands out from the crowd. Altering the "theme" of your site is a snap. You can find the theme setting under the "Appearance" tab of your Management Console.
Click "Edit" to test out our five standard themes: Leaf Green, Tangerine Orange, Maya Blue, Carbon Black, and Platinum White. Every theme changes the background color, the color of the header, the text color, the button colors, and more. Once you've found a theme you like, click "save."
Here are some examples of each theme in action:
Leaf Green ¶
As light and refreshing as a summer leaf floating in the wind:
Tangerine Orange ¶
Bold and assertive, but still with just a hint of demureness:
Maya Blue ¶
Reminiscent of tropical beaches. Lie back and let this sea of tranquility wash right over you:
Carbon Black ¶
As classic as a tuxedo, but way more functional. If James Bond had a theme, this would be it:
Platinum White ¶
Crisp, clean, and uncluttered. Sometimes simplicity is the boldest statement of them all:
Branding is important. A logo right in your site's header lets visitors know who you are.
To upload your logo, click "Edit" under the "Logo" field of your Management Console. Use the Image Uploader to upload your logo. Then drag the uploaded image into the "Logo" field. Your logo is automatically resized to fit into the header.
Here's a few tips for better logo integration:
- We're going to resize your logo to fit in a 300x36 pixel box. 36 pixels is quite short—wide, rectangular images fit best into our header. If your logo image is too tall, it won't look good once we resize it to fit in the header.
- Your logo shouldn't have a background color. If it does, it will show up in the header surrounded by an ugly white box.
- The file you upload must be in PNG format. JPG doesn't support transparency, and GIF transparency is too jagged and pixelated. PNG works because it supports alpha-blending; that's what makes logos pretty.
- Certain logos go better with certain themes. If your logo is light, use a brightly-colored theme to make it stand out. If your logo has dark colors, use Platinum White for better contrast. Pro tip: If you love a theme that clashes with your logo design, try inverting the color of the logo. White logos look great on bright backgrounds.
