The look and feel of your website is controlled by a Theme. Digital PTO offers a wide variety of themes to both our free and paid members. To explore the themes available to you, visit APPEARANCE > THEME LIBRARY
Your Themes Page
When your theme page loads, there are three things you’ll see. Your Current Theme, The Free Themes and the Premium Themes.
Your Current Theme
Premium Plan Themes
Changing your Website Theme
If you hover over a theme in the Theme Library it will give you an option to see a LIVE PREVIEW of what your site would look like using that particular theme. Keep in mind that some themes have further customization beyond the live preview.
Our Premium Themes
Our Paid Members have access to additional themes. If you are interested in unlocking additional themes, you can Upgrade here. Premium Themes can still be Live Previewed, you just can’t activate the theme if you’re not a member of the plan associated with that theme.
Most of our themes offer the ability to upload your own image for the top (header) of your website. Many also offer the ability to upload a custom background. Some of our Premium Themes have entire sections for customization options to make your site your own.
If you have some knowledge of CSS, you can activate our Simpler CSS Plugin and modify your sites css to your hearts content. Each theme will have it’s own available css for modification.
Widgets & Side Bars
Widgets are small applications that you can drag and drop to different locations on your theme. The most common area is the side bar. These widgets will display things like Recent Posts, Upcoming Events, a Welcome Message, News Archives, Advertisements and more. Widgets can be found at APPEARANCE > WIDGETS/SIDEBAR. We have an entire article on widgets and their use.
Uploading Custom Themes
We are not able to upload custom themes due to the way our network is secured and crafted. This includes themes found in the wordpress repository. Many of our themes offer a variety of customization options though, so you should be able to create a look that meets your needs without a problem.
