You’ve already seen one version of Wikia’s new look, but it can be hard to visualize how it will work with your own wiki and color scheme. So we asked our designers to come up with some examples of the sort of themes and effects you will be able to create once the new look is ready.

You’ll be able to go dark or light; put images in the side areas, or create an awesome new background pattern -- all with our new theme designer which will allow you to quickly and easily create a skin that matches your wiki topic and community.

In the past, you either had to learn complicated CSS, or were limited to a very basic theme. Now you’ll be able to create professional-looking designs with just a few clicks. Of course, if you prefer, you can use the pre-designed themes that will also be available.

We’re almost ready to give you a detailed look at exactly how the new theme designer will work, but in the meantime, here are a couple of examples to feast your eyes on. Please note that these are mock-ups, so features like the toolbar, top navigation and sub-navigation have not been customized or may be missing pieces. These were done by our designers, but they’ll still give you a great idea of what you can create on your own. Enjoy!
