Theme customizer

Timber is a straightforward photography theme; that is why we use our Customify plugin to make the style controls easy to use. This means that all the colors, fonts, and layout settings can are in the default WordPress Customizer.

To access all of these customization options, you must first make sure you have installed and activated the Customify plugin. To verify, go to your WordPress dashboard and click on the Pixelgrade tab; scroll to the Manage plugins section and check if Customify is installed. If not, click on the Install button next to it.

The next step is to access the Customizer. To do that, go to your WordPress dashboard (the admin panel) and navigate to Appearance → Customize.

From the customizer panel, you can change several different aspects of your site’s styling.


By going to the Style tab, you get access to the following settings:


  • Headings Color 
  • Body Color 
  • Captions Color 
  • Links Color
  • Border Color
