What is a “theme style”?
Also known as a preset, all of our themes come with various different looks or theme styles that have different groups of fonts, colors and layouts. For instance, Parallax has 4 different looks called Aspen, Madrid, Vienna and Los Angeles:
These different looks are called theme styles. These different preset theme styles show the range of the theme and allow you to find the best look for your site. If you like a feature in one theme style but the look of another, don’t worry! All presets have access to the same features, you may just need to select them under your theme settings.
Are multiple theme styles included in the theme?
Yes! The purchase of a theme includes all its additional styles. You can change theme styles by following the instructions below.
