How to Customize Your RebelMouse Page with Fonts, Colors or Custom Themes

By Janine Warner, David LaFontaine

After you choose your layout type, pick your default font and the color scheme for your RebelMouse page. Beneath the column layout picker are the available headline font and descriptive text choices.

RebelMouse constantly adds to these choices by installing new font and color combinations. Picking just the right font is a subject that designers can spend days or weeks agonizing over. A good general guideline is that for a personal site or for a site dedicated to art, design, or photography, you can get away with using a more ornate or decorative font.

However, if you’re trying to promote a more restrained or professional image, you would probably do best to stick to one of the simpler font and color combinations.

Beneath the array of font styles is the option that will allow you to take complete control over colors, fonts, and styles on your RebelMouse page. Click the box with a plus sign in it to open window containing all the CSS code for your page.

If you know CSS, you can tinker in RebelMouse to use fonts and colors different than the limited selection of the theme options that RebelMouse offers. Remember to click Save when you’re done.

If you’ve never worked with CSS before, you should probably leave these options alone.
