Branding

Brand the Community

Customize the community to match a unique brand.

Branding allows Admins to customize the thematic elements of the community to match the desired look, style, and feel of their brand.

To incorporate branding, Admins can add:

  1. Logo: The symbol or design used to identify a community.
  2. Community Name: the name members identify the community.
  3. Coloring: A community's color theme that is automatically used across your site. This determines the community's Primary, Background, Secondary, and Text colors.
  4. Top Navigation: The top vertical menu that displays top-level items of a website's structure.
