Explanations and instructions of all things Writing.Com.
Change the look of Writing.Com and decorate your workspace with just a few clicks! "Skins" are graphics that allow you to instantly change the page headers and "Themes" are the navigation colors that coordinate perfectly with them.
At the top of your Writing.Com page, you will see a purple gradient (the WdC default Skin). Now, move your mouse to the far left of that purple gradient and you will see a small "SKINS" button pop out. Click this to open a small menu to the left above the Writing.Com logo. As you click and cycle left or right through the Skins and Themes, you will see your WdC page change instantly before your eyes! Find the perfect Skin & Theme that suits your mood or writing style today. When you've found your favorite, click the little x button on the menu and go about your business of reading, writing and reviewing!
Much More to Come!
We are in love with this feature and are very excited to see where we take it. For our Skins & Themes initial release, we will only be offering Skins & Themes that Writing.Com has designed and made available, and the Skins & Themes are currently linked together (meaning you can't have the WdC Default Skin with the Acrylic Yellow Theme). We have so many ideas on what we will do with these, but simply put... the code is not written yet! In the future, members will be able to design and upload their own skins and themes, making them available to the community for free or Gift Point fee. There will be WritingML tags for your skins, a management area for you and so much more. But for now, you simply get to play with them, sift through them and choose the one you love the most today!1
