There are two ways to edit the current Site Themes or to create your own custom themes using the XLEcom program:
- Use the GUI "Site Theme" Utility within the program, or
- Export the Site Themes using the "Site Theme Export" Utility, then modify the site themes using a standard spreadsheet interface.

Global Settings Changes via the Web Site Theme
Any changes you make the Web Site Theme will propagate throughout the rest of the program. In other words, the "Ad Design" and "Site Setup" sections will automatically be updated with the changes you make to the Web Site Theme.
Site Themes and Image Files
Either select a pre-defined Site Theme from the drop down scroll box or customize a Site Theme by first selecting a Theme from the drop down scroll box and then selecting the images by clicking on the folder icons. To view your selected Theme in your web browser, click on the "Preview Theme" button.
Product Ads, Product Navigation menus, and Support Pages Border Properties
To apply a colored border around the perimeter of the Product Ads, Product Navigation Menus, and Support Pages, check the box, press the "Change Colors" button, and choose a color from the "Border Color" drop down scroll box.

Note: The Body Area uses the same color as the "Decoration Header" of the Product Ads.
Select the font colors and bold properties for the text within the three (3) outer frames / areas (top, left, and bottom). You can also change these font properties using the "Site Setup" function.
