Customizing site appearance

In Drupal, your website's theme is how the different visual elements that make up your website are combined and placed. It includes the available regions that you can use, different layouts on different pages, and the selection of colors, fonts, and graphics.

Your theming options for your websites on Acquia Cloud Site Factory depend on which Drupal distribution you're using and your subscription level.

Theming with a custom distribution

Acquia Cloud Site Factory provides two principal methods for theming your websites that use your custom Drupal distribution: using an external Git repository, and manually theming your website.

External Git repository

If you're a PaaS subscription customer that's using your own custom distribution for your websites, you can associate an external Git repository that contains one or more Drupal 7 themes for use with your website. After you connect your website to a theme repository, you can view and select its themes by clicking Appearance in the admin menu.

For more information about connecting to an external theme repository, see Adding external themes to your site.
