Add a Theme to Your Personalized Google Home Page

Mar 20, 2007 • 7:13 am | comments (16) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Other Google Topics

It appears as if the Google Personalized Home Page now allows you to add "themes." If you visit that page, on the top right you may notice a link named "Select theme."


If you click on the "select theme" link, up comes a box of several themes you can choose. The list includes; Classic, Beach, Bus Stop, City Scape, Sweet Dreams, Tea House and Seasonal Scape.


I selected Bus Stop, which looks like this:


Google then asks you to enter in your zip code so that the theme you selected with dynamically change based on your currently weather. I suspect that if its snowing, there may be snow around the theme, and so on.

The box says:

Enter Location:
This theme will dynamically change to match your local weather conditions.

Please enter a location (your city and state or zipcode) to update this theme correctly.

The reason you somthimes can and somthimes can't see the 'select theme' button is that it is only available if you use the url, and not a localised one such as To make sure you can allways see it, ser your prefered page to .com. I'm sure google will sort this out soon.

How come I can't change my select theme on my google page? And the current theme of the Racoon's raking leaves has a large message or something running right through the middle obscuring most of the theme. I have went through all the necessary rig a morole to sign up for google, but I can not even change or see the theme properly. Thank You

I chose Louie for my theme. He's an adorable baby lab. Now all I have is the classic google theme and even though I add Louie, the system acknowledges it's added but nothing happens.
