Introduction

If you’re looking for a Zendesk help center themes that are beautifully designed, offer an amazing customer experience and are easy to set up and maintain, you’ve come to the right place.

Our themes and extensions for Zendesk Guide have been built from the ground up to be customized and used to create thousands of fantastic help centers world wide.

What makes your themes different?

Most theme providers attempt to provide layout and styling options through the use of theme settings alone. This leaves you with a limited set of options, defined in advance by the theme author, and makes any additional branding or customization work very difficult.

Recognizing this we’ve developed an entire theming framework that provides both the ability to brand and customize a theme without code as well as a powerful range of tools that you can use to bring your help center vision to life. These tools include:

Settings offer direct control over basic aspects of your theme’s appearance, including color palettes, fonts, images and page layouts. Changes made through both theme settings and Sass variables are reflected in the theme’s base styles and form the foundation on which everything else in the framework is built.

Utilities are single-purpose class names that you can use to make quick, specific changes to existing layouts. There are utilities for almost everything you could want to change, including colors, typography, positioning and sizing. They can even be combined to create entirely new designs.

Elements are building blocks that you can use to update or create new page layouts. They include common website and help center components like buttons, lists, cards, rows and columns. As with utilities, you can combine them to create new layouts or define your own using custom CSS.

Patterns are predefined layouts, ready to copy, paste and tweak. They are often compositions of both elements and utilities and can be copied in their entirety between themes or directly from the Pattern Library. Use patterns to get ideas and significantly speed up the design and development process.

Extensions instantly extend the functionality of your help center in ways that are not possible using Zendesk’s standard templates alone. They can be used anywhere in the theme, both as a part of broader page layouts and within article content.

Our themes and extensions make branding and customization faster, allow for rapid prototyping of ideas and ensure that changes are made in a consistent way based on the values you select when configuring settings. We also offer premium support and guidance with every purchase which guarantees a fast launch and an amazing help center for your customers.

Our large collection of themes has been designed with many different types of businesses in mind. If a theme already meets your requirements you can simply install it in Zendesk Guide without making any changes at all.
