What can I customize?
You can choose any logo, menu, sub menu, link, visited link, button, border of button color you’d like. This is found under Appearance > Customize > Colors.
How does the slider work?
It is completely optional- you can choose to have a slider or not. You can have it display featured images from your posts, feature just certain posts from a category, exclude certain posts, feature pages, etc.
You can set the slider pictures to be whatever dimensions you’d like. Currently, they are set to 600 x 1000 pixels.
I have another tutorial in my theme documentation that comes with your purchase if you’d like to choose which images to display.
How does the “between posts” widget area work (located on the homepage underneath the 2nd post)?
For the “between posts” widget area, the demo displays affiliate links. You can choose to display whatever widget you’d like such a newsletter signup, about blurb, recent posts, featured pages, etc. This will display on the first page of your blog underneath the 2nd post automatically. If you don’t want this feature, simply don’t set it up!
What size of logo can I upload?
You can upload your logo- the logo area is 1000 x 150px. Or, if you don’t have a logo, you can simply type in your blog name and it will styled just like the word “Elle” is on the demo.
How many widget areas are there?
There are 4 widget areas- featured (the slider area), social media menu, sidebar, and the footer.
How does the featured posts area work (under the slider)?
You can choose which posts based on category, date, tags, or popularity (i.e. comment count) to feature here. You can also name it whatever you’d like. I named it “my style” for the demo.
How can I set up the Instagram footer?
You can edit your footer to have as many rows and columns of images. I walk you through this in my theme documentation.
Is there a landing page?
Yes, there is a full-width, no sidebar page template which is perfect for a landing page. When you are creating a page, you simply select the full-width template option. You can use this template for a regular page or set it to be your home page in Settings > Reading. I have tutorial in my theme documentation showing you how to set this up and also how to add a slider to your landing page.
What widgets can I use in the sidebar?
You can add, delete, and rearrange any widgets of your choice to any of our themes. Even if a theme demo does not show the widget you’d like or the widgets in the order you’d like, you can still add any widget you’d like or drag and drop the widgets into any order you’d like. I have a specific tutorial in my theme documentation showing you how to add the Instagram and social media icon widgets to your sidebar.
Is the Read More feature optional?
This feature is completely optional to set up, but it is styled in case you choose to use it. You can choose to set it on whatever posts you’d like.
What is the sidebar and image post size?
The sidebar width is 275 pixels. The post area is 680 pixels wide.
Can I change the fonts?
