Theme Customizer

The Theme Customizer of WordPress allows you to tweak the Appearance settings of the theme and gives you a live preview of those changes. Our themes also add a few options to the Customizer, which let you configure various things of the theme.

Customizer Usage

You can use the Customizer by clicking on Appearance  Customize in your WordPress admin panel. You can also get to the Customizer when you click on the ‘Live Preview’ link underneath the theme screenshot on Appearance  Themes.

Default Sections

By default, WordPress adds following sections to the Customizer.

  • Site Title & Tagline
    You can easily change the title and description for your website, which is displayed in the header area (as in Settings → General).
  • Header Image
    This section allows you to upload a custom header image.
  • Background
    You can change the background color and image here.
  • Navigation:
    This section let you choose the theme location for your created custom menus.
  • Static Front Page:
    Configure what will appear on your front page (as in Settings → Reading).

Widget Sections

The Customizer enables you to set your widgets in real time, too. There will be a section for each widget area of your theme. However, you can also add and configure widgets on your WordPress admin panel → Appearance → Widgets if you like.

Theme Options

Our themes add a new section “Theme Options” for all theme related settings. Depending on the theme you’re using, the section will have different sub sections. Usually there will be sections for general settings, post & header settings as well as theme colors and fonts (with Pro Version).
