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.

When using a custom Drupal distribution, Acquia Cloud Site Factory provides the following methods to theme your website:

  • Use an external Git repository
    If you are a PaaS subscription customer, you can associate an external Git repository that contains one or more Drupal 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.
  • Manually theme your website
    Acquia Cloud Site Factory subscription customers have the ability to manually theme their websites in manners similar to other Drupal websites.
