When should I use a Global Theme?
Global themes are a good match if your campaign pages do not have a complex design. They are also a useful tool for creating campaign templates or making campaign wide branding updates quickly—for example: updating logos after a rebrand.
Can I still edit individual pages after setting a theme?
Yes, but any future changes to the global theme may override parts of your custom design. In this situation, we like to view updates to the global theme as a reset button.
