Site Theme

WebPublish sites are created with a default theme package of: grey colour scheme, white background, Grant Hall (red) banner, and red site-wide block styling.

The colour scheme (menu bar and footer), background, site header and site-wide block styling can be configured for you by the WebPublish Team - simply request your change(s) via the IT Services Help Form

Note: All requests for changes to the site header must be submitted or approved by the site owner.

Site-wide Block Styling

Within WebPublish, you can request to have default block styling applied to new and existing blocks on your site. For more information on the style options available, please see our Styling Blocks tutorial. To request changes to your default block style settings, please submit an IT Services Help Form.
