Learning portfolio – Switching your theme to the Parsons Template

We ask that you use the Parsons Learning Portfolio Template as you move forward in your studies. It is a sort of “Parsons uniform” designed to showcase the your work and to highlight navigation, which is how you tell your story.

Switching to the template is pretty easy but there are some things that you’ll likely need to “tweak” once you make the change.

To change your template:

  1. In the bar at the top of the interface, click the name of your site and in the drop-down, choose THEMES

  3. When you are done, preview your site by going to the pull down at the top of the window

  4. Did you lose your Navigation Menu? Don’t worry, it’s still there!
    In the pull down at the top, or in the appearance menu in your dashboard, select MENUS

  5. In the Menu window, you should still see all of your menu items.
    Scroll to the bottom and look for THEME LOCATIONS.
    Click MAIN.
    This will add your menu back where it belongs in the header!
