WordPress customizer

Change anything you’d like from within the Customizer. No confusing options panels but the robust built in WordPress Customizer to help you change anything to the theme in minutes.

These are the options available to you:

  • change the colors
  • disable parallax in header
  • enable boxed version
  • enter social icon links
Custom header background per page / post

custom header

Change the header background on a page per page basis or on a single post page! If not filled in it will just revert to the standard header image uploaded under “appearance -> header”.

We got shortcodes

Use the shortcodes plugin to easily make detailed pages or posts! Just install it from inside your admin panel and you’ll be able to add shortcodes from a dropdown menu inside your post editor.

Boxed version
