Customizing Your Themes

Andrew B

In this article, we will cover an Overview of Customizing Your Themes.Below is a video to help you get started!


Prior to getting started, you will need to have the following:

  1. An active ClickFunnels 2.0 account.
  2. A theme created in your account.

How can you make a marketplace theme your own?  Using the Customize Page Templates button on the Theme Dashboard, you can take a generic theme and make it yours.  Doing this allows you to create a theme focused on your brand and the experience you want your audience to have.  This allows you to build your brand and ensure a consistent quality between your funnels and pages.


Customizing a Theme

  1. In your ClickFunnels account, click on the gear-shaped Settings button on the menu on the left-hand side of your screen.

  4. You will now find yourself in the page editor.  Instead of editing an individual page, changes made to theme pages will affect the templates for workspaces using this theme.
  5. You can select different page types within the theme from the left-hand menu.  Each page type reflects a different type of page for which this theme provides a template.
