All MADD Canada Chapter websites use the content management system called WordPress.

WordPress uses themes for the appearance of the web site. And what exactly is a theme? Here’s the explanation from the WordPress web site.

Fundamentally, the WordPress Theme system is a way to “skin” your weblog. Yet, it is more than just a “skin.” Skinning your site implies that only the design is changed. WordPress Themes can provide much more control over the look and presentation of the material on your website.— WordPress.org

All MADD Chapters sites are using a theme called Risen and it is the only theme available at this time. Other themes may become available over time.

The Risen theme for WordPress has all the features a chapter website needs – a mobile-friendly responsive design, photo and video gallery, events, staff profiles and news. Risen also has powerful customization options that make it easy for you to change the theme’s colours, fonts and background.
