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 300 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 like best by clicking on the thumbnail. WordPress accepts .jpg, .png and .gif.
Select whether to display or hide your website title and tagline. To modify your title and tagline go to the Settings -> General area in WordPress.
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 or .ico. You should not use a .jpg as it will probably not display.
Internet Explorer has special requirements for favicons. If your custom favicon does not display in IE versions prior to IE10, check this walkthrough.
Set your own custom font and CSS for testimonials any any other element you wish to restyle.

The Post Meta section allows you to enable (check) or disable (uncheck) various elements that appear on your posts and pages. By default, the theme is set to On, which will display all elements you have checked.

Custom RSS URL
If you use a service such as Feedburner, enter your custom RSS URL here. This will be used in place of the WordPress default.
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!
Check to show the footer panel by default.
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.
