Themes allow you to change the design of your blog at anytime. Changing your theme will not affect the primary content of your site.

How to change your theme

Once you've logged into your site, change the theme by:

  1. clicking the Appearance > Themes tab in the left column of the dashboard
  2. browse through the listing of available themes. Note their layout features, and whether or not the allow for easy customizations.
  3. choose Preview to quickly see how your blog will look using that theme
  4. choose Activate to select that theme for your site

About theme support

Please keep in mind that although these themes may work today, they are not guaranteed by the theme developers and may not stay current with the latest release of WordPress. We do our best to test all themes before making them available on blogs.evergreen.edu but they may need to be removed if they pose a security threat or stop functioning after a WordPress update.
