Each option in the live customizer is pretty well described there and easy to use already, so we will just go through the sections in short so you can get an idea of the overall structure – and point out the important things.
You can access all options by going to Customize > Theme Options
This is where you will find general options for the whole theme.
- Responsive Layout: If you choose to disable responsive.css, you may need to do further changes in style.css for the site to work completely as un-responsive, as there are some mediaqueries in this file as well – mainly for the menus.
Here you will find all options that relates to posts – mainly the blog homepage, the single post pages as well as archive pages.
- Heading & Subheading: This text appears at the top of the posts homepage.
All your header settings are available here. Please note that the Logo Upload is placed under Site Identity instead, as the default setting is used.
- Footer Widget Columns: This is where you enable footer widgets. Select the column count you wish to use, and then go to Appearance > Widgets and add your widgets to the Footer 1/2/3/4 boxes. Usually 3 columns are recommended in order for it to look best on all screen resolutions.
Here you can set a specific layout for each one of the standard WordPress page sections. If a specific page or post has another layout set, the single and page options set here will be overridden by that option. If you just want one sidebar layout for the entire website, you only need to modify the Global option.
To set a layout for a specific page or post, you need to go to that page or post and select which layout to use below the large text field.
Here you can set specific sidebars for each WordPress page section as you wish. To create unlimited sidebars, make sure to download the Alx Extensions plugin.
To add a sidebar you have created for a specific page or post, you need to go to that page or post, and select sidebar from the dropdown menu below the large text field.
Here you create and re-order your Social Links as you wish. These links will appear in the header and footer of your theme in most cases.
The icons can be given a specific color if you wish, or you can just leave that option blank and it will use the default setting.
The icon names can be found here – FontAwesome gives you the option to choose between many unique icons to use. Example of names to fill in the admin panel would be “fa-facebook”, “fa-twitter” and so on.
The advanced dynamic styles included with all themes gives you the ability to change colors of accents, backgrounds, texts, sections and more.
