Hi,

Unfortunately, it isn't possible to change the template on an active site, although you can change every element of the current template via the Design menu.

If you wanted to choose a specific new template, you would need to start a new site.

Yes, that is possible - as long as you delete the old site first, you will be able to re-use the address immediately.

Hi,

Not a problem. If you have an Analytics code, you will need to add it to the Services page on the new site. Google will need to crawl the new site before their results update, but anyone clicking on your site in results will be taken to the new one anyway.

Hi,

Yes, the existing site would need to be deleted, content and all.

Hello,

I am trying to delete my existing template but it is not giving me the option to. Could you delete it for me so I can start again.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

You cannot change the template on an existing site, but you can delete the site and start over. I'd suggest having a read through our Beginner's Guide, which you'll find on the Help menu - this gives you all the help you should need to get your site up and running.

HTH,

Gary
