There are some Google Sites themes that have limited customization options. While you can tweak them to change the colors and fonts, there are certain elements that are pre-defined and cannot be modified.
A custom theme on Google Sites gives you more control over how your site looks and feels. Not only does it let you make small tweaks, but you can also go wild with it to completely personalize your site.
This article explains what a Google Site theme is and how to create one of your own and manage them.
What Is a Google Site Theme?
A Google Site theme is a collection of formatting styles that are applied to your site’s elements, such as banner, color scheme, font type.
You can create your own custom theme or use an existing one. Like a color palette or a mood board, Google Sites themes let you express yourself and your brand through design. A good site theme can attract and engage your target audience, make it easier to navigate your site, and help you achieve your marketing goals.
You can use themes to create consistent design elements across your site, or to create a completely customized design. Google’s default themes are easy to modify and can be used as a base for creating a custom design.
How to Create a Custom Google Site Theme
The first step before you start creating your very own custom theme is to open a Google Site and choose the “Themes” menu on the right pane. If you want to create a brand new custom theme, click the “+” button under the “Custom” option. If you want to use an existing theme as a starting point, choose a theme from “Created by Google”.
