A theme is the "look" of the site - the layout, colors, fonts, and the like.

Sites are fixed width (a set width for the content; content is either aligned in the center with empty space on right and left, or aligned to the left with empty space on the right) or 100% width (content areas stretch to fill the entire screen).

This install includes several standard and add-on themes, as seen below. Customized themes are available - contact us for an estimate.
