All Obox Themes come with some General options for setting a custom logo and favicon, and other customization options like colors, meta tags and so on. Here we will explain each option:
This option allows you to upload a Custom Logo to replace the default theme logo. 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.
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 favicons 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.
