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:
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 320 pixels wide, or 300 pixels tall (for best compatibility with mobile devices). 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.
Knead comes with two 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.
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.
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.
This section allows you to control which meta or special post content is displayed on posts, pages, archives and some widgets.
- Author Link – Uncheck to hide the author link.
- Date – uncheck to hide the date on posts and archives
- Social Sharing – Uncheck to hide social sharing buttons.
- Tags – Uncheck to hide tags on posts.
- Next & Previous Posts – Uncheck to hide Next and Previois post links in posts and portfolio items
- Portfolio Category Links – Uncheck to hide the Portfolio Category navigation
- Service Excerpts – Uncheck to hide excerpts at the top of Service posts
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
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!
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.
Save your options by clicking the Save Options button in the top-right or bottom-right corner.
