Theme Options

The Theme Options page in the wp-admin dashboard is your Control Central for everything in the theme. It is found in Appearance -> Theme Options.  It is critical that you become comfortable with it and are aware of it’s many settings. All of the settings include a description of what they do. If anything is unclear or confusing, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

The Theme Options are divided into 8 sections:

General

Includes settings for color scheme, Logo settings, and some critical settings that must be set or the theme won’t work.

Slideshow

Includes all the settings for controlling the behavior of the Slideshow on the homepage. You can control the transition effect, number of items to show, the order of items, exactly which items show, and more.

Social Networking

Includes all the settings you need for setting up your Twitter, Facebook, and other social networking sites.

Hide or Show Stuff

Settings to hide or show elements/features of this theme. For example, if you don’t use Twitter, you can “hide” it from the homepage and the sidebar.

Custom Text

Controls all the headings and labels used throughout the site. Handy if you don’t like my wording, or if your site is in a language other than English.

Browse By

Options for the “Browse by” section in the menu bar. Change wording of the menu items, include/exclude certain Browse By items, etc.

Miscellaneous

Settings that didn’t find a home in any section above. Like Jpg quality, Google Maps API Key and lots more.
