The Command theme adopts a similar look to the clean simple style of the GOV.UK website. Without a conventional navigation it is driven by search, the homepage and a new Browse template.

Command Overview

Page Structure

Each page on a site using the Command theme is divided into four main areas. This article lists the elements in each.

Page Header

The header is displayed at the top of every page. It contains site-wide components like the logo, top utility menu and search bar.

Main Page Content

The central column displays the main page content, as entered into iCM. This includes text, images, inline links and other embedded content.

Right Column

The right column displays content related to the current article in iCM. This content is organised into a series of panels, known as asset panels.


The footer area is displayed at the bottom of every page. It contains site-wide components like the footer logo, utility menu and copyright information.


These articles describe the Command theme's custom Home, Document and Feedback templates, and includes example implementations of the other core template types.

Image Sizes

The Command Theme uses the following image size constraints.

Subsite Settings

These settings for the Command Theme are held in the subsite configuration, in addition to those that make up the framework's core behaviour.
