How to Theme Options – The Ultimate Guide for Tweaking Your Website’s Theme
You may be wondering how to theme options for your website. You could have decided to take the easy way out and use a template, but that’s not the way to go. There are many different ways to theme your options that you can choose from. You can use SASS (or CSS) to make your site look unique and customize the way things appear on your site. Plus, you’ll learn a lot while doing so. This article will teach you the basics of creating a custom theme for your website.
Set The Theme
First things first—you need to set the theme for your website. To do this, navigate to Settings > General Settings > Theme. You’ll see a choice of themes there. To change the theme, simply click on the one you want to use. You’ll then be brought to a page with the code needed to make it active on your site. This can be a bit challenging if you’re not used to writing code, but it’s not difficult. There are many different themes to choose from, so you’re bound to find something that suits your needs perfectly.
Use The Theme
Once you’ve set the theme for your site, it’s time to use it. Go to Appearance > Theming > Use Theme. You’ll see a variety of options for using the theme you set. Simply click on the one you want to use and your site will be updated with the changes. You can click here to get started.
You’ll then be brought to a page with an area for you to enter details about your site. You can add a header, color scheme, and favicon for your site. To add a header to your site, simply enter the text you’d like to appear in the header in the text box, along with the desired font. Hit Save when you’re done. To change the color scheme, navigate to Settings > Appearance > Colors > Scheme. You can choose between Dark and Light modes for the colors. Both are included, so there’s no need to choose one over the other. You can add more colors by clicking on the + symbol on the right-hand side of the page.
Update The Header
Now that you’ve added a header to your site and changed the color scheme, it’s time to update the header area. Go to Appearance > Theming > Update Header. You’ll see a variety of different headers you can choose from. Simply click on the one you want to use and your site will be updated with the changes.
Adjust The Sidebar
The sidebar is a widget-filled area that appears on the left side of your screen when you log in to your site or visit a page that has a sidebar. You can remove some of the widgets there if you don’t need them and add more based on your site’s needs. To remove widgets from your side bar, simply hover over the area with your mouse and click on the – symbol that appears next to each widget. You can also change the color scheme and layout of your sidebar to fit your site’s design.
Bring It All Together
Now that you’ve updated your header and sidebar, it’s time to bring it all together. Go back to Settings > General Settings > Theme. On the left-hand side, you’ll see a check box for Show Preview. Check it if you want to see what your site looks like before publishing it.
Once you’ve done that, save your changes and you’re all set to go live with your new theme.
