How to change the appearance of your site
SurreyCommunity.info has a number of built-in themes that you can use to set the appearance of your website.
These themes control the colour and layout of your pages and can be quickly and easily applied to your site. You can change the theme as often as you like but generally it is best to select one theme and then stick with it.
For most sites, we recommend using either the Modern theme or the Bootstrap theme. Both have options for easily customising their appearance and are designed to work well with recent web browsers as well as tablets and mobiles.
If you need to support older web browsers (versions released before 2009), we recommend the Dark Tones and Playtime themes instead.
There are also a number of other older themes available. Although you can use them, these are no longer actively developed and we don't recommend their use for new sites.
For advanced users, it is possible to adjust the appearance of a site by customising the built-in themes.
To set the theme used for your site
- Go to your site admin page
- Click on the look and feel tab
- Click on themes
- Click on the select button next to the theme that you want to use (the theme that you are currently using is marked with a tick).The theme will be applied instantly to your website.
- For the Modern, Bootstrap, Dark Tones and Playtime themes, click the options button to configure the appearance of the theme.
