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

Sidebars

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.

Adding functionality to your site

Plugin Overview - use plugins to connect your site with a variety of web content including Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, etc. Want to connect to a popular service that you don't see listed in the available plugins? Let Academic Technologies know and we can look into adding it.
