UCL Blogs: Customising your theme and appearance

How to customise your theme and appearance

  1. From your blog Dashboard go to the Appearance menu
  2. Select Themes
  3. Click on Live Preview to see how your blog will look in a new theme
  4. Once you have found one you like, click Save & Activate.

Themes have different functionality so if you change your blog theme you might lose access to widgets in a sidebar. These will move to inactive widgets and can be reused in your new theme. Not all blog themes will display your name or display multiple authors which may make them unsuitable for particular blogs.
