The latest release of Bamboo’s Community Central offers a host of new features and customization
options. While default, Community
Central for SharePoint 2013 keeps the same stylistic components as Community
Central for SharePoint 2010, our new customization options allow you to change
the style of your site to meet your style needs.

your Community Central site on SharePoint 2013, including the site’s background as
