How to Set and Edit a Global Theme

Last Updated: Nov 19, 2018 11:07AM PST

A Global Theme allows you to set and manage 3 key design elements that appear across your campaign pages. These include your campaign logo, hero image, and primary color. More importantly, a global theme ensures your branding stays consistent across your campaign pages—a core part of a seamless donation experience for your supporters.  

In this article, we will explain how to set up and edit your global theme using the following steps:

  1. Open Your Global Theme Settings
  2. Set Your Global Theme
  3. FAQ

Note: You can set a global theme on 3 of Classy’s campaign types: Ticketed Events, Registration with Fundraising and Donation Pages. Crowdfunding and Peer-to-Peer campaigns do not currently offer the option to set a global theme. But you can still manage the appearance of these campaigns by editing the individual pages.

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.
