Using the page editor, themes, and sections in your careers site 2.0

Updated over a week ago

All pages in your careers site have these components:

  • a theme determining their colors, fonts, navigation, and footer

  • customizable sections

In this article:

Page editor

Hover over any page in your dashboard and click Edit to open the editor.

Navigation bar - Above the page editor, you can access the page settings, switch page languages, change views, open the page preview, undo and redo actions, visit the page history, and save or publish your page.

Theme - on the right side of the editor you will see the theme and contents of your page.


The theme of your page determines its colors, fonts, navigation, and footer. Thanks to that, you can implement your company’s branding throughout your careers site. You can create several themes and choose which pages should use them.
