An introduction to customising themes

When you install a theme it'll appear on the 'themes' page in your account.

You can click either one of the links (Style Editor or Theme Settings) in order to customise how the theme looks and, to some extent, how it works.

As you'll see from the example above there are 2 type of settings.

The exact settings that are enabled for you to edit depend on the theme that you have installed.

Style settings

There are various settings in your theme where you can customise how it looks and also some of the text dotted around the site (like the Copyright statement).


You will be able to edit certain colours used throughout your theme, read more here.

Text snippets

Your site is setup with small pieces of text dotted around (like your Copyright statement) which are edited through the style editor, read more here.

Action buttons text

You can change the wording of your sites 'action buttons' like Add To Basket or Proceed To Checkout, read more here.

Product page customisations

You can set certain settings on your website's product page (like whether to display a roll over zoom effect), read more here.

Theme settings
