  • How do I add my own theme in a group?
    Please note: currently only official groups and groups with more than 10,000 members are allowed to add personal themes. If you are an administrator for such a group, then everything is OK and you can make some unique decorations for your group for free. To do this:
    1. Click "Decorate group page";
    2. Click "Upload group theme";
    3. Carefully read all the prompts;
    4. Your uploaded theme will be sent for moderation. Moderation may take up to three days;
    5. If your theme passes moderation, you will be notified and will be able to set it up in your group;
    6. If it fails moderation, you will receive a message with the reasons why it didn't pass so that you can fix it and try again;
    7. Themes that pass moderation will be stored in your "My themes" section, under "All themes".
    Several useful hints:
    • A theme should be carefully designed head to toe. Random pictures thrown together will not make for a high-quality theme;
    • The top image should seamlessly meld into the page background;
    • The top image must be 140 pixels high or else it will be overlapped by group contents;
    • If a theme failed moderation, don't simply re-submit it. First take the feedback from the notification into account, fix the issues, and then try again.
    Now your group will be even more beautiful and unique!
