Change the theme of your community 

You can customize the appearance of your community by changing its default theme.

Before you begin

You must be a community owner to change the theme of a community. You must also be logged in to IBM Connections.

Note: Community themes are not available if your administrator has made customizations that apply to all of the IBM Connections applications.

About this task

When you create a community, a default theme is automatically applied. You can change the colors and fonts used in the community's user interface by selecting a new theme. You can choose from a number of default themes, and your administrator can also make custom themes available. When you apply a different theme to your community, that theme is also applied to any community applications, such as a community blog or wiki, and community forums and activities.

Applying a different theme to a community does not affect any associated applications. For example, if you have associated a Confluence wiki with your community and you change the theme of the community, the appearance of the wiki is not affected.


To select a new theme for your community...

  1. From your community's Overview page, select Community Actions -> Edit Community.

  2. Click Change Community Theme.

  3. Select a theme from the options provided, and then click Save.


The theme is applied to all the pages in the community.
