Introduction

This stage can seem confusing and complicated, but Imagen has three main pages for theming - Home, Search, and Record. This includes custom pages that will carry your theming and branding. 

 


Theming considerations

It is important to consider how your users wish to interact with your content when they first arrive at your Imagen platform. Is your site for Internal use, or to be used as a visually striking storefront? Do you want users to search first, or direct them to your most valued content? These decisions will help Identify the theme that best meets your requirements.

Theme differences

Dark themes

Dark themes are very much 'in vogue', as we see increasing popularity across the web. There is also accessibility to consider, as it is easier to read white text on a black background than vice-versa. All three stock themes have both a dark and light variant.

Customisable Record display 

Both Material and Peli have customisable Record displays. Whereas Peli allows for numerous carousel displays. If you are keen to direct your users to specific content, these themes may meet your needs. Explore does not have a record display list. 

Search Bar Location

Both Explore and Material have a central search bar, If directing users to search for content is of the greatest importance these themes may meet your needs. Peli has a search bar at the top of the screen, where users are drawn to your content displays first. 

Custom Logo and background

All themes allow for custom brand logos, and a custom background.
