Edit your theme settings
Last updated: October 13, 2020
A theme is a set of styles and templates you can apply to your website pages and blogs in HubSpot. To make sure that your website looks consistent, style settings for all pages using the same theme are managed in your theme settings. You can easily customize your theme's settings by clicking the Design tab on the left panel in the page editor. Theme settings can be adjusted with intuitive controls such as toggles, switches, and color pickers.
Before you get started
Theme settings control the main colors, fonts, and button styles for pages using your theme templates.
Please note: the styling options available in your theme setting depend on the theme field options included by the web developer who created your theme.
Some of the content for your website is managed in other parts of your account settings, including:
- Your company logo: update your company logo in your Account Defaults in the Branding tab.
- Your navigation menu: menu colors are set in theme settings, but your navigation menu content and links are managed in your Navigation settings. Learn how to create a navigation menu you can add to the global header or global footer content within the page editor.
- Your domain for publishing: all CMS Hub Professional accounts can connect one brand domain, and all CMS Hub Enterprise accounts can connect two brand domains. All accounts can host multiple subdomains for these brand domains. Learn how to connect your domain in the domain manager tool for page publishing.
