Designing Your Site

Working with themes

Themes allow you to change the design/look of your blog at anytime. Changing your theme will not affect the primary content of your site. It may seem as though some content has disappeared, but you just need to tell the new theme where the content should go.

Front Page and Navigation


Many themes support sidebar content. A theme's sidebar may default to a particular set of "widgets." You can change this by adding your own widgets.
