Theme Best Practices

Here are some recommendations when building your own theme.

About the names

  • Use a descriptive theme name but no more than 20 or 25 characters.
  • Use short descriptive names for image titles and color schemes.
  • Use names with no spaces for the theme and image files.
  • Replace the spaces by using the dash under "_".

About the number of objects in the arrays

  • Header - Add between one and three.
  • Background - Add between one and three.
  • Color - Add between three and five color schemes.
  • Job - Adjust to the restrictions.
  • Promotion - Adjust to the restrictions.

About image files

  • Try using .png files for your images.
  • Try to keep your images as small as possible without losing quality.

About theme size

  • Try to create small, lightweight and easy to set up themes.
  • If you've designed a large theme with more than three Headers and Background, with lots of color schemes, try splitting it into two or more themes.
