In this tutorial, we will be covering how to switch to some of our earlier templates and clear up some confusion that occurs when switching to templates.
**If you are wanting to switch to some of our most recent templates, please see How to Switch Templates. These recent templates are designed with our newest features in mind, such as Sharefaith Giving, Social Media Feeds, Google Calendars, and custom cell background and hover effects. Our developers have focused on these templates to ensure they work as flawlessly as possible.**
We are always adding and improving our website template collection. Our designers do a fantastic job of creating new templates and features for our Sharefaith websites. When we release a new template, you have the option to switch your Sharefaith website over to the new template at no extra cost! The best way to find out when we have released a new template is to subscribe to our Sharefaith newsletter.

Before we go into the actual process of switching templates, let's go over a few imperative things.
- You can switch templates as many times you want, whenever you want at no extra cost.
- Changing templates will not replace content that is on your Sharefaith website such as images, banners, logos, plugins, widgets, etc.
- Since we do not replace your current content, when you switch to a new template you will not receive any of the customer banners, images, logos that are associated that template. Those are stock images that are intended to showcase the template and all the possibilities and features of the template. The stock content is not intended for customers to use. They are simply placeholders until you have placed your content on your website.
