Web Theme

The Web Theme is designed to provide a true web experience with the flexibility of further customization. It supports the following features:

  • The ability to change the website appearance and page behavior by choosing pre-loaded Skins.
  • The ability to give each page additional functionality by adding pre-loaded Modules.
  • Additional advanced customization from designing and writing your own skins and modules (see Further Customization).

The Web Theme can have various levels of customization applied, this ranges from:

  • Configuring the 3D Preview Service location (only required if using the 3D Preview Box Control). See 3D Preview Service Location for more information.
