Brightspot CMS User Guide

Configuring a user's theme overrides


In a production environment, you apply a theme at the global and site levels. For example, for the global site you can apply one theme, and for the individual sites you can apply other themes. In a testing environment, you can override a site’s theme at your user level. When you view an item that is associated with the site, Brightspot applies the overriding theme; for all other users, Brightspot applies the site’s theme.


To configure a user's theme:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Users & Roles
  2. Under Users, select your username. The Edit Tool User widget appears. (For information about creating a username, see Creating a user.)
  3. Click the CMS tab > Advanced.
  4. From the Global Theme Override list, select the theme.

  5. If you want to use a different theme for different sites, do the following:

    1. Under Site Theme Overrides, click add_circle_outline. A Site Theme Override form appears.

    2. From the Site list, select the site for which you want to apply a theme override.
    3. From the Theme list, select the theme you want to use for the site.
  6. Click Save.
