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 option:
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 300pixels 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.
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.
Carousel comes with eight pre-made color schemes to choose from. To switch colors, select a preset from the Color Options drop down. Remember to refresh your front page to preview color changes after saving your options.
Select whether to use a Sans-Serif (Arial, Helvetica, etc) or Serif font (Times New Roman, Georgia, etc).
The Thumbnail Settings menu allows you to designate which option you want to use to manage the dynamic image features of the theme.
The Obox Main Image option will grab the thumbnail uploaded using the Browse button under the post editor in the theme’s Settings panel Image field.
The WordPress Thumbnail Feature tells the theme to use the inherent WordPress image resizing capabilities via the Set Featured Image option in your post editor and is recommended.
With WordPress 3.5+, our newer themes use the WordPress image handling method, so this setting has little bearing on how images appear in your widgets. The Obox Main Image sets your WordPress Featured Image automatically and can be a quicker upload when creating posts.
Custom Meta (advanced)
For those of you who are switching to this theme from a theme that had a special custom image field, the Custom Image Meta option allows you to enter the field name into the Custom Meta field to attempt to pull in your existing featured images. The full image path must be set in your field for this option to work, ie http://www.yoursite.com/wp-content/uploads/etc/image.jpg.
This section allows you to control which meta or special post content is displayed on posts, pages, archives and some widgets.
- Date – Uncheck to remove dates from posts, archives and widgets
- Tag List – Uncheck to hide tags on the bottom of posts
- Post Author Link – Uncheck to hide the author link on posts and archives
- Comments – Uncheck to hide the comments link on posts and archives. Does not disable comments.
Single Post Extras
These settings control special meta appended to the bottom of your posts.
- Select whether to display recent gallery thumbnails at the end of your posts
- Select whether to display author details at the bottom of your posts. This is most useful for multi-author blogs and displays the author avatar and short bio.
Enter changed classes from the theme stylesheet, or custom CSS here. This field saves styles through theme updates and re-installs, and is the recommended method for customizing the theme over editing the stylesheets or using the custom.css file.
Custom RSS URL
Enter a custom RSS URL such as Feedburner link here. Leave blank to use the default WordPress feed URL.
