What can I customize?
You can choose any logo, menu, sub menu, link, visited link, button, border of button color you’d like. This is found under Appearance > Customize > Colors.
How does the slider work?
It is completely optional- you can choose to have a slider or not. You can have it display featured images from your posts, feature just certain posts from a category, exclude certain posts, feature pages, etc.
You can set the slider pictures to be whatever dimensions you’d like. Currently, they are set to 450 x 1000 pixels.
I have another tutorial in my theme documentation that comes with your purchase if you’d like to choose which images to display.
What size of logo can I upload?
The size of logo this theme supports is 400 x 140 pixels. Or, if you don’t have a logo, you can simply type in your blog name and it will styled just like the word “Luxe” is on the demo. Please note, your logo area is small due to the unique layout and functions of this theme.
How many widget areas are there?
There are 4 widget areas- featured (the slider area), social media menu, between posts, and the footer.
How does the “between posts” widget area work (located on the homepage underneath the 2nd post)?
For the “between posts” widget area, the demo displays affiliate links. You can choose to display whatever widget you’d like such a newsletter signup, about blurb, recent posts, featured pages, etc. This will display on the first page of your blog underneath the 2nd post automatically. If you don’t want this feature, simply don’t set it up!
Can I customize the Instagram footer?
You can edit your footer to have as many rows and columns of images. I walk you through this in my theme documentation.
Is there a landing page?
Yes, there is a full-width, no sidebar page template which is perfect for a landing page. When you are creating a page, you simply select the full-width template option. You can use this template for a regular page or set it to be your home page in Settings > Reading. I have tutorial in my theme documentation showing you how to set this up and also how to add a slider to your landing page.
Do my posts have to alternate?
Yes, this theme has a unique layout and is coded to have the featured images of your posts alternate between right and left.
What images are displayed next to my posts?
Your featured images are the images that display next to your posts on your blog page. Your featured image does not have to be included in your post content, but most bloggers choose their main image in their post to be their featured image.
Does the orientation of my featured images matter?
You can use either horizontal or vertical featured images- it doesn’t matter! On the first page of posts in the demo, vertical images are displayed. On the second page of posts in the demo, vertical images are displayed. Your post excerpt, read more button, and share buttons will automatically center to the middle of your featured image.
Is the Read More feature optional?
On this theme, it is not. It is coded to have your posts automatically alternate between displaying the featured images on right and left. The read more functionality is built in to allow the posts and content to display correctly with this unique layout.
How does the category page work?
The category page template displays recent posts in the category (or categories) of your choice with the corresponding featured images from each post in a grid fashion. When creating a page, you simply select the category page template and enter the categories you’d like to display.
What is the image post size?
The post area is 740 pixels wide.
Can I change the fonts?
Here’s a tutorial that walks through the way to edit your fonts!
