The look and feel of Bloom can be changed very easily and quickly, once you have created a Theme you can get to work on changing a Theme to fit your needs! If you haven’t got any Themes right now, don’t fret, have a quick read of our Creating a Theme guide here.
Editing a Theme
- After clicking ‘Edit’ you’ll be taken to that Themes edit page. From here, you can edit the various parts of your Theme, set it up for custom Groups as well as publish the Theme for use.
- The first tab you will see on the left hand side list is General, here you can publish the Theme, select the Groups that use it and more.
- It’s very fast and easy to adjust an aspect of a Theme, such as the colours of fonts and backgrounds, the icons used, the font and much more. You can find out how to these kind of things just below.
Changing the font
- Head to the Fonts tab, and you can select from an enormous selection of Google and Web Safe fonts. You have the choice of using a primary and a secondary font, if your theme calls for more than one font.
- After you’ve selected your one or two new fonts, you can choose where you use them in many different parts of the Theme. This could be the font used in the navigation bar or the one used on the various cards in the Library!
Changing the icons
- If you navigate to the Icons tab, you can choose from a selection of different icons to represent different actions and buttons in Bloom. If you prefer a heart to a thumbs up for your Course like buttons, this is the place to change it.
Changing a colour
- In Bloom, it's possible to change background colours, text colours and even the colours of that text when it’s hovered over! You can change the colours of many parts of Bloom, go to each tab to see what colours can be changed and where you can change them.
Tips and tricks
- If you need a taller navigation bar, you can change the height (in pixels) in the Settings menu, under the General tab. This is a change that’ll be implemented across all of Bloom
- Any updates you make to the styling, be it font changes or colour changes will be shown in the live preview! This cool feature allows you to track your changes as you go along, so you can see what your Users will be using before you publish it.
