This article is for anyone using a Site Builder compatible theme.
About This Feature
Your Theme Settings apply to all of your external facing landing pages like your home page and course landing pages. Here you can apply color and font changes that will modify the look of all your pages at once.
Any changes that are applied to your Theme Settings must be be saved in order to appear on your live site. You can always test out your changes and view them right is Site Builder before saving them to make sure you are happy with how they look!
Theme Settings are designed to apply globally to make sure your site has a consistent feel across the board. Colors and fonts cannot currently be customized per page.
Applying a new style will drastically change the look and feel of your theme. Most Thinkific themes feature several styles, ranging from bold to light. When applied, colors and typography will be overridden to create a different mood for your theme. For instance, in the example below, Empire has 4 style options:
Changing from one style to another won’t affect your content in any way - simply the colors, typography, and stock images.
Try them out! If you’d like to override any of the settings that your Style has set, or if you want to go a completely different direction from the Style, you can adjust each element individually through the following settings.
Adjusting landing page colors is the quickest way to apply your own branding and aesthetic to your site, and Site Builder gives you granular control over every color element of your page with the following settings.
