The Duke WordPress service includes several dozen themes adopted from the WordPress.org theme repository. Site owners can use these to change the design of their site. Different themes have different properties and may work better (or worse) with different plugins. Changing themes may substantially change the overall functionality of your site, so proceed with caution.
Given the wide variety of themes available, the Duke WordPress team does not provide detailed technical support for the multiple configurations possible in each theme.
Duke-branded themes are also available, inspired by the duke.edu Style Guide template developed by the Office of Marketing and Strategic Communications. The Duke-branded themes will reformat the display of any related sites when viewed on mobile devices.
Duke WordPress themes are actively reviewed by the team, and those that are not being used or are no longer supported will be retired. Please note that a large number of themes is scheduled to be retired in October 2015. Site admins need to review these instructions and take any necessary actions by October 10, 2015.
