Ambition: Configure Theme Options

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

All Obox Themes come with some General options for setting a custom logo and favicon, configuring which meta to show, and other customization options like fonts, social media and more. Below is an overview of each tab:

General Options

Custom Logo

This option allows you to upload a Custom Logo to replace the default theme logo “Ambition.” The dimensions are purely up to you, however it should not exceed 540 pixels wide, or 200 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 prefer by clicking on the thumbnail. WordPress accepts .jpg, .png and .gif.

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 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, recommended dimensions are 326px x 82px. This logo will appear on your WordPress login page.

Custom Styling

Ambition has a couple ways of letting you stylize the theme to match your personality and aesthetic:

Custom Google Font Code

The custom styling section allows you to tie in a custom font from Google Fonts, which will change up the Testimonials font automatically. You may also use it in your own custom styles.

Go to Google Fonts, choose a font and click Quick Use. Copy the code from step 3 (blue box) and paste it into this field.

Custom Font CSS

Paste the CSS from Step 4 of your Google Font page here. Example:  font-family: 'Courgette', cursive;

Custom CSS

Enter any custom styles into this area. These styles are retained even if you reinstall the theme.

Auto-Generate Thumbnails

Enable oEmbed Thumbnails from your video host if oEmbed links are used in your posts to set featured videos. These images will appear in the Blog templates and category archives wherever oembed videos appear. Videos will always display the video in the single post.

Custom RSS URL

Enter the url to a custom RSS feed URL such as Feedburner. If you are not using a special RSS manager, you can leave this blank.

Posts & Social Settings

Full Posts or Excerpts?

Choose whether to display the full post content (or teaser you create using the More tag in the post) or Excerpts in the Blog templates. Excerpts will look first for manual excerpts entered into the Excerpt field of the post, or generate a 55 word excerpt automatically.

Post Meta

Each post meta option controls the display of “meta” links on the archives, blog, and widgets, where the widget does not have its own option. Turning off dates will not affect Events.

  • Related Videos – Uncheck to disable related videos on video posts.
  • Date – Uncheck to turn off date. Does not affect events.
  • Tags-Check to show tags on single posts
  • Comment Link – Uncheck to hide comment link in widgets and posts. Does not disable commenting.
  • Post Author – Uncheck to hide the author on posts and archives.
  • Category Link – Uncheck to hide the category on posts and archives
  • Video Meta – Uncheck to hide the oembed video views and likes from video posts.
  • Social Sharing – Uncheck to hide social sharing
  • Show Next & Previous Posts – Uncheck to hide Next and Previous post links in posts


Social Widget Code

Social widgets allow your visitors to share and promote your content. There are so many great social widgets out there, we didn’t want to force you to use one in particular. This field allows you to add any widget code from a social sharing provider or template tag from a WordPress social sharing plugin that supports manual placement. The widget appears on posts to the right of the title and can be adjusted using .social{ } in the Custom CSS area.

By default, the theme uses AddThis

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 an image on the page or post being shared. Your image must be at least 200px by 200px.

Social Icons

The social icons display across the top of the Ambition layout, to the right of the logo. To show them in the footer, use the Social Links widget.

Enter the full profile URL of each relevant social network in the fields provided.  Leave blank to not show icons

Header Customization

Use these settings to add a call-to-action button and text to your header.To add a header image, click the link in the option panel tooltip, or go to Theme Options Customize, then return to this section to enter a Title and some text, if preferred. Recommended dimensions 1920×380 or at least 980px wide.

Header Title

Enter the text you wish to appear in large bold letters (see example above) or leave blank.

Header Excerpt

Enter a tagline or a couple sentences here to follow-up your title, or leave blank.

Page Link

Choose a page to link to.

Button Text

Enter some custom text for the button. Leave it blank if you do not want the button to appear.

Footer Customization

Custom Footer Text and Hide Obox Logo

This section gives 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!) You may also replace the default copyright text with your own.

For example: “Copyright © YourSiteName”. Don’t put code in this box, it won’t work!

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. If you would like your code in header, then you will need to insert it into the Theme Header under AppearenceEditor.Learn more about Google Analytics here.

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