Topic customization

The Theme Editor gives you the possibility to quickly change the way your topics look like, level by level (central topic, main topics, level 2 subtopics, etc.).

  5. More options panel - here you'll find the options to copy-paste or to clear topic's style.


Outside the Theme Editor, all subtopics added beyond level 10 will have, by default, the same style as level 10 subtopics.
