Custom Theme functionality is available for Rise approved business partners. This allows you to fully customise the display of a Rise leaderboard for you or your clients.

As long as you include the "Powered by Rise" logo and link to  somewhere within your embed you can completely customise the embed code for your site. [Download Powered by Rise logo]

To do this:

  • Create your embed html code (it uses a combination of HTML, CSS and TWIG) see the available tags below and start customising it as you would prefer.  Here's a custom theme example you can download to get started with.
  • Once you're happy go to Embed settings and choose Custom
  • Provide a URL link to your custom embed code and hit save.

  • Now your embed will use your embed code to display the leaderboard.

To ensure speedy performance, Rise takes a copy of your code and stores it on our server. So each time you want to make a change to your code you'll need to hit the refresh button on the Embed Settings page so Rise takes the latest copy to use when serving your embed.

Here's a minimum custom embed theme code for you to get started with:

    {% for player in players %}
            <td>{{ }}</td>
            <td>{{ lb_score_formatter(player.score, board.total_score_format) }}</td>
    {% endfor %}
<small>Powered by <a href="">Rise</a></small>

2. It has not been corrupted (some providers convert > to &gt; for example)
3. The filename ends with .html rather than .twig
