Theme Options

One of the most important customization component can be found under Appearance → Customize → Theme Options. Here you’ll see options related to Logo, Scrolling, Layout, you’ll be able to add share services, or play with your custom JavaScript snippets.


Here you can find three major sections—Header, Content, and Archive—where you can set the logo height, make the navigation bar sticky, choose the menu placement, set the container width, and much more.


This section allows you to change the blog settings in order to better match your personal style. You can choose the layout for Blog Archives (Masonry Grid or Classic List), select the number of columns of masonry archives based on various screen sizes, adjust the excerpt length and change the excerpt “More” text, show or hide archive breadcrumbs, manage posts meta data, show a sidebar in the Archive Pages, and more.
