Add a custom theme to Communities 

Community owners can customize the appearance of a community by choosing from a selection of themes that change the colors used in the community. Administrators can modify or add to the selection of default themes provided with Communities by customizing the existing themes, or by defining custom themes and adding them to the Communities configuration file, communities-config.xml.

Note: If you are performing other customizations that apply to all the applications in IBM Connections, for example, if you are customizing the header and footer used in the product, you might need to alter or customize the themes available in Communities to ensure that they work as expected in your environment. Consider adding themes that match the customizations that you have made in other areas, for example, themes that match your customized header and footer.

To configure community themes to work with your corporate branding and best meet the needs of your organization, consider the following options:
