Principles: Configure Theme Options

Start by clicking  on Theme Options in the left-hand admin menu.

All Obox Themes come with some General options for setting a custom logo and favicon, setting your desired image handling method, and other customization options like colors, meta tags and so on. Here we will explain each option:

General

Custom Logo

blank_customlogo

This option allows you to upload a Custom Logo to replace the default theme logo or banner. The dimensions are purely up to you, however it should not exceed 940 pixels wide, or 300 pixels tall. Click on Browse to upload an image file from your hard-drive, or enter the URL of your image file if it is hosted elsewhere.

You can upload as many logos as you like and then simply switch to the one you like best by clicking on the thumbnail. WordPress accepts .jpg, .png and .gif.

Site Header

Select whether to display or hide your website title and tagline. To modify your title and tagline go to the Settings → General area in WordPress.

Custom Favicon

custom_favicon

This option allows you to upload a favicon, which is the tiny icon displayed in the browser address bar when visitors view your site. The dimensions should be 16 x 16 pixels. Click on Browse to upload an image file from your hard-drive, or enter the URL of your image file if it is hosted elsewhere.

You can upload as many logos as you like and then simply switch to the one you like best by clicking on the thumbnail. For best results, your favicon should be a .gif. You should not use a .jpg as it will probably not display.

Custom Styling

Set your own custom font and CSS for testimonials any any other element you wish to restyle.

Custom CSS

Enter changed classes from the theme stylesheet, or custom CSS here.

Custom Typekit Scripts

To use fonts from typekit, including Proxima Nova as seen on our demo screenshots, you must add your typekit script to the field provided. You can sign up for a free typekit account here.

Full Posts or Excerpts?

Select whether to show full posts or excerpts in your archives/ blog list.

Post Meta

The Post Meta section allows you to enable (check) or disable (uncheck) various elements that appear on your posts and pages. By default, the theme is set to On, which will display all elements you have checked.

  • Date: Uncheck to turn off date.
  • Tags: Check to show tags on single posts
  • Social Sharing: Uncheck to disable sharing
  • Author Link:  Uncheck to hide the Author link on posts

Custom RSS URL

Enter the URL to your custom feed, such as Feedburner if you have one.

Footer

Custom Footer Text & Hide Obox Logo

The Custom Footer Text and Hide Obox Logo section give you some control over the copyright area of the footer. All of our themes come with an Obox Logo at the bottom right of the footer. To switch this off, simply uncheck the box (although you get extra awesome points for leaving it on!) Replace our default copyright text with your own. For example: “Copyright © YourSiteName”. Don’t put code in this box, it won’t work!

Show Footer

Check to show the footer panel by default.

Site Analytics

If you would like a quick and painless way to implement Google Analytics, paste your preferred tracking code into this text area. Your code will then be insterted into the footer of the theme, which is best for performance reasons. If you would like your code in header, then you will need to insert it into the Theme Header under Appearence → Editor. Learn more about Google Analytics here.

Social

Social Widget Code

Paste the template tag or code for your social sharing plugin here to replace the theme default (AddThis)

Social Icons

These settings will control the social icons in the Social Widget. Input the full URL.

 

Save your options by clicking the Save Options button in the top-right or bottom-right corner.
