The customizer menu on the left side shows the various options that are available for editing in your theme.  You can choose from options such as colors, background images, menus,  and more. The exact options available depend upon which theme you’ve activated.

[Getting Started | Help & Guides]

This section provides some basic steps for getting started. It is recommended that you follow these steps for a better start. Also, don’t forget to check the buttons below the instructions for more information and to make the most out of your new theme.

Background Colors

You can change or update your theme background colors right from WordPress Customizer. This option will vary depending on which theme is activated on your website. Just pick the color you want. Use the Default button in case you’d like to revert to the default colors.

Custom Color Variables

With the Custom Color Variables settings built right into WordPress Customizer, you can now change the default colors used across the entire theme globally and/or in one place. Set the color for the Top Head, Header Bar, Menu Custom, Sub Menu Custom, Footer, and Copyright. Define your project/brand colors in one place and keep everything nice & organized.

Click the Default button next to the color code inside each option if you want to reset it back to the theme’s original color.

Typography

Typography plays an important role in the design. Beautiful fonts create a better user experience, increase engagement, and boost time users spend on your site.

Typography allows you to tweak typography to suit your needs. You can use Google Fonts in our theme. You can change typography on your site without writing any code. It also allows you to control the typography on your WordPress site by adding a Typography tab in the theme customizer. Using the typography tab, you can change fonts while viewing a live preview of your changes. You can select font sizes, colors, padding, border, and much more.

Site Identity & Upload Logo

You can set your site title, tagline, and upload your site icon (favicon) or upload logo here. If you have activated a theme that doesn’t include the Header Image setting (see below), you can also choose whether you’d like to display an Image logo or Dynamic text for your site title.

* If you already changed Logo but it couldn’t display on your website, please take a look at Header/Footer script and remove all code.

Home Page Settings

The default setting for the front page is Your latest posts.  This setting allows you to display a blog-style front page. You can, however, select any page in your site to be displayed as the front page instead of your latest posts.

If you select A static page, you can select which existing page in your site will be displayed on your front page.

You can also select which page will display your blog posts.  This page should be different from the one you’ve selected for the static front page and should not be set to use the Blog Page template.

* PLEASE  NOTE:  If your theme uses the front page to display widgets,  the widgets will be displayed regardless of which setting you choose here.  If you prefer to display your latest posts or a static page on your front page, you’ll need to remove all widgets from all front page-related widget areas.
