All customization options for Ignition Framework based themes have been integrated in the WordPress Customizer to provide the user with an easy to use and familiar interface.
Customization options are split into seven distinct categories based on which aspect of the site they affect. Let’s take a brief look at each one.
This panel houses options that affect the entire site. It is split in three sections presented below.
Through this section users can customize the appearance of the site and blog by moving or entirely disabling the sidebar. Additionally they can modify the content width and change the column ratio between content and sidebar.
Through the colors section users can easily modify the theme’s background image and or color and change the theme’s color scheme.
Finally the typography section gives control over the theme’s font pairing and allows for fine tuning of key font properties for headings and widgets. A vast font selection is available to users in the form of Google Fonts.
The top bar panel gives users access to customization options available for the area above the logo/menu. Users can modify its content and color scheme or disable it entirely if needed.
Header customization is split into six sections as presented below.
In this section users can modify the header type by choosing between a normal (example) or a transparent header (example). The header type can be overridden in each post/page/custom post type individually if needed. The header can be also made fullwidth. There are four available layouts for the menu/logo group, the menu can be left, right, center or split to two separate menus with the logo between them. The sticky menu can be enabled here and finally users can choose the maximum screen width below which the mobile menu will be displayed.
The header features a content area next to the menu which can host plain text, HTML or one of the framework’s built in shortcodes.
There are four distinct color sections for the header. Normal and transparent colors apply to their respective header types, sticky colors take care of the menu when it’s stuck and finally the mobile menu colors deal with the appearance of the menu on mobile devices.
The page title is the section located just below the header (example). It houses the page’s title and an optional subtitle. Though this customization section users can toggle the appearance of the page title section sitewide, change its content alignment, toggle the appearance of its content and the site’s breadcrumbs, modify its background image and color scheme. The appearance of the page title section, its background image, contents and breadcrumbs can be toggled individually for each post/page and custom post type.
The blog customization panel is split into two sections, the Archives section which allows users to control the appearance of post listings and toggle various meta, and the Single Post section which provides the ability to configure what information will appear on single posts.
Through the footer settings panel users can toggle the appearance of the footer section, customize its color scheme and modify the content of the bottom bar to display copyright info.
The utilities section allows users to set up the theme’s built in OpenWeatherMap integration to display current weather through the theme’s custom shortcode, toggle the lightbox and enable a dark mode for the block editor.
