Site Themes are themed skins for the Neopets website. While a handful of site themes are available to users by default, most site themes must be unlocked by performing certain actions, such as participating in a plot or redeeming a virtual prize code.

Users can change their current site theme by selecting their desired theme from the drop down menu located under the "Theme" section of their Site Preferences page.

History[edit]

In October of 2004, The Neopets Team began releasing themed skins for the Neopets website. These skins were called "sidebar themes", since they altered the appearance of the distinct yellow sidebar that was displayed on the left side of the website at that time. As part of the Neopets 2.0 upgrade, the layout of the Neopets website was completely overhauled and the sidebar was removed entirely. Because of this, sidebar themes were updated and redesigned into "site themes" that matched the website's new layout.

Site Themes and Holidays[edit]

To make the website more festive, on certain holidays The Neopets Team will override the user's chosen site theme with a holiday appropriate one. All users will see this holiday site theme for the duration of the day, even if they have not otherwise unlocked the theme for normal use. At the end of the day, the site theme will revert back to the user's chosen theme.

The days on which this happens are as follows:

Date Holiday Theme
February 14th Valentine's Day Valentine's Day theme
October 31st Halloween Haunted Woods theme
November 15th Neopets' Birthday Happy Birthday theme
December 25th Christmas Winter Holiday theme


Additionaly, as part of the Neoplants April Fools' Day joke in 2009, users were forced to use the Neopets Green site theme for the duration of the day.
