Getting More Themes
Custom Themes

If you prefer to have a custom appearance for your site, and modifying CSS
files and settings (see `Customizing Your Site`_ for details) is not enough,
you can create your own theme. See the :doc:`theming` and
:doc:`creating-a-theme` for more details. You can put them in a ``themes/``
folder and set ``THEME`` to the directory name. You can also put them in
directories listed in the ``EXTRA_THEMES_DIRS`` configuration variable.

Getting Extra Themes

There are a few themes for Nikola. They are available at
the `Themes Index <>`_.
