Retail Therapy: Configure Theme Options

From your WordPress Dashboard, click on Theme Options  If you are already on the Site Layout tab, click the General tab

Custom Logo

themeoptions_custom_logo This option allows you to upload a Custom Logo to replace the default theme logo/title text. The dimensions are purely up to you, however it should not exceed 300 pixels wide, or 100 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.
If you upload a large logo, see this post for adjustments you will need to make.
You can upload as many logos as you like and then simply switch to the one you prefer by clicking on the thumbnail. WordPress accepts .jpg, .png and .gif.

Favicon

themeoptions_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 prefer by clicking on the thumbnail. For best results, your favicon should be a .gif or 24-bit .png. You should not use a .jpg as it will probably not display.

Custom Login Logo

Click Browse to select a custom login logo, which is displayed on the WordPress admin login page. Recommended dimensions are 326px by 82px themeoptions_login-logo

Facebook Sharing Options

This option allows you to disable the theme's OpenGraph support if you are using a plugin that duplicates the feature and does not allow disabling it. If left on, you may set a default site image for Facebook to use if it cannot find a featured image on the page or post being shared. Your image must be at least 200px by 200px.

Custom Styling

This field allows you to enter any Custom CSS overrides used to customize the theme beyond simple color changes. Add any styles from the style.css or create your own here. Content in this field is saved to the database, so you won't lose changes if reinstalling the theme.
Never copy/paste the entire theme stylesheet into this box! Only copy the individual styles and properties you are changing. For tips on using your Browser's inspector to help with this process, see How to Find the ID or class name for an element to use in Custom CSS

Hide Obox Logo

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!)

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 inserted into the footer of the theme, which is best for performance reasons. Learn more about Google Analytics here.
