How do I change how my website looks?

Changing the appearance of your website, is as simple as clicking a few buttons.

The appearance of your website is controlled by pieces of software called ‘Themes’. We have already installed many of these Themes, and will now explain how you can change between them, and change the appearance of your site.

In your admin panel for your site, on the left hand side is a tab that says ‘Appearance’, click on this.

The screen that then loads, shows the ‘Theme’ that is currently installed at the top, and all other themes are listed below, and on subsequent pages.

Under each available Themes, you can see 2 links, Activate and Preview.

Activate will change the theme immediatly, so what is seen on the public view of your website is that Theme.

Preview will open a window that shows how your website would look, should you choose to install that Theme. From the preview screen, if you like what you see, you can click in the top right corner, where it says ‘Activate Theme Name’, or click on the top left hand side, where there is a small x to close the preview screen.

Changing Themes will only change what is ion the ‘Public’ side of your site, and do not change how your admin looks.
