The Risen theme used by your website was made to be easy to customize. Here are some things you can change and where/how to do so.


You can upload your logo by going to Appearance > Theme Options > Styles.

The team will have already placed your chapter logo in the header.


The tagline shown on the right side of the header can be changed by going to Settings > General. You can place a contact email or telephone number in the tagline, for example.


You can choose between a light or dark base style and set custom main color (menu bar, slider caption, sidebar widget headings, etc.) and link color in Appearance > Theme Options > Styles. You can also change the background color (read below).


Risen gives you complete control over the background. Here are the types of backgrounds you can configure in Appearance > Theme Options > Styles.

Solid Color

Choose any color to show as your background.

Preset Background

Several preset background images and patterns are included with Risen. Some of the background patterns are colourable. The team will be adding new MADD Canada backgrounds as time permits.

Custom Upload

You can upload your own background image. There are options for showing it full screen (such as a large photo) as well as for making your background tile (like a pattern).


Go to Appearance > Theme Options > Styles to change the fonts uses for the menu, headings and body text. You can use the default fonts or choose from about 200 hand-picked Google Web Fonts.
