Personalize your Site Appearance

Silk takes full advantage of the Customizer to manage the settings for your layout, spacings, sizes, and more as easily as possible.

And what better way to make style twists than with the live preview? Simply change any setting and see it take effect right way from Appearance → Customize. Make sure it represents your overall style and is in line with your brand personality. Consistency matters and helps you stand out from the crowd.

General settings

By going to AppearanceCustomizeTheme Options → General, you can access several essential settings to customize your website to your liking.

Here are the settings that you can enable or disable from this area:

  • Display Front Page and Archives posts in a single column layout;
  • Display the Featured Image on single posts;
  • Hide search button in top header bar;
  • Show sticky menus on scroll.

You can also change the copyright text to match your specific needs.

Colors

Using a color picker is not ideal when you want to customize your website. Having an unlimited number of color options makes the decision of choosing the right one nearly impossible. Plus, it’s easy to mess them up and wrongly combine them. That’s why we built the Style Manager, an interactive system that lets you choose between pre-defined color palettes or create your own. You can read more about where to find it and how to use it in this article.

Fonts

Silk delivers the whole 600 Google Fonts library at your fingertips. You can read more about where to find the right fonts for your website and how to customize them in this article.

Style Presets

We know that a website has to match your style, therefore, we’ve added several preset styles to try out before you start fully customizing your digital crib. It offers you a wider perspective on what to expect at the end of the personalization process, so you don’t have any surprises.

Naming your website is an important part of the customization process. By going to the Site Identity section, you can change the Site Title, Tagline, Logo, and more.

Add custom CSS code

You have the ability to insert your own custom CSS code straight into the Customizer and get a live preview of it. Go to AppearanceCustomizeAdditional CSS and add your custom code.
