The theme is a set of colors, fonts, and decorative elements that provide a consistent appearance to your site. A site comes with a set of themes that enable you to quickly change the appearance, based on your organization's needs.
Applying a theme does not affect the layout or content of your site. It also does not change the theme of any specific pages that you applied a theme to by using a Web design program that is compatible with Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007.
To change the theme of a site, you must have the Design permission level.
On the Site Actions menu , click Site Settings.
Note On a site for which the Site Actions menu is customized, point to Site Settings, and then click the settings that you want to view.
- Under Look and Feel, click Site theme.
- Select the theme that you want.
- Click Apply.
Note You can also design and apply custom themes by using a program that is compatible with Windows SharePoint Services. You can also change the colors, fonts, and other formatting without changing the theme by editing the core.css style sheet for a site with a Web design program. For more information, see Help in your Web design program.
