Theme Design Overview

REACH provides a fully-functional Theme engine to give organizations even more capabilities to customize the style and design of their portals.

When an organization first signs up for REACH, they are automatically assigned the latest version of a REACH Theme. From then on, it is up to the organization to update their Theme as new versions are released.

We highly recommend each organization stays current and updates their REACH theme as new versions are released. This will ensure you can benefit from the most up-to-date features and capabilities of REACH.

A REACH Theme uses four main Theme Design components: layout file, template files, partials, and assets. Our Themes section includes versioning, allowing you to keep a history of the changes you have made to your Themes so you can compare or revert back to previous Themes as needed. 

A basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is recommend when editing and customizing your REACH Theme. REACH Themes use Liquid Objects and other functionality based on the Liquid Templating language which has been used extensively since it was released in 2006 by organizations like Shopify, Adobe Business Catalyst, Zendesk,, Octopress, GoDaddy, and many other services.

For basic updates to your REACH Portal, see Portal Setup.
