How do you change the template family?

Recommended Posts

Hi there - 

I'm setting up a new site and I chose a template to play around with, and then decided that I wanted to switch to a different one (Harman). 

It doesn't seem like there's a way to do this. Squarespace help says "you don't need to change anything, you can just customize."

But the Harman template is completely different than the one I started with. Which looks like it means I'd have to change EVERYTHING to make it match Harman (and guess at what to change along the way).

Am I missing something?

It looks like Harman belong Squarespace 7.1

"In version 7.1, all sites share the same template family, with the same features and style options, so there's no need to switch templates. The design you select when you create your 7.1 site is a starting point. You can always switch to a different look or add different page types without starting over"

Thank you @tuanphan - one of the challenges I have right now is that some of these 7.1 template are so different from each other that if I'm not happy with the one I've been working with so far, I would have to change *everything* about the theme manually to make it look like one of the other template. 

So if I'm thinking, "Wow, I wish I selected Rivoli instead of Harman", do I need to reverse engineer every element of the template to make it look like the other one?

Am I way off on this? Am I wrong about something? I'm new, so I could be totally dumb about this (and would love to find out that I am!).
