Other theming options

In addition to Outreach theme which is set as the default theme for Open Outreach, there are other themes you can choose to create a different look for your site.

Mix and Match

Note: As of June 2013 we have switched to the 2.x version of Mix and Match which is based on AdaptiveTheme. (The old 1.x Fusion-based Mix and Match has been deprecated.)

  • To make Mix and Match your new theme, select “Appearance” from the toolbar. Then select the “Enable and set as default” option for Mix and Match theme. Upon refreshing, the new theme will be loaded.
  • Mix and Match comes with a number of different colour options to choose from and many different items you can give colour or shading to. To configure these settings, visit the “Appearance” section and click the “Settings” button for Mix and Match. Choose your configurations and save.
  • As with all AdaptiveThemes, there are numerous settings that you can control from the user interface to change fonts, font sizes, titles. etc.
  • For Mix and Match you may need to change the Style settings for the Superfish 1 block to none.
  • All AdaptiveThemes need the settings page saved (even if you made no changes) so that the block regions will be correctly displayed.

Sky and AT Commerce

  • Sky and AT Commerce are another couple of AdpativeThemes that are packaged with Open Outreach to give you a range of options in determining how your site will look.
  • You can select these at install time or change your theme later on at admin/appearance.
  • As with all AdaptiveThemes, there are numerous settings that you can control from the user interface to change fonts, font sizes, titles. etc.
  • All AdaptiveThemes need the settings page saved (even if you made no changes) so that the block regions will be correctly displayed.

Bartik

Bartik is the default theme that ships with Drupal 7. It will also exist on any Open Outreach install and can be easily used.

  • Bartik will already be enabled by default so you need only choose the option to “Set as default” under the “Appearance” page.
