Theme Settings

For the Theme options panel, i’ve used a variation of the options framework. You will find the Theme Options Easy to Use and Configure.

Front Page Slider

By default, Front Page Slider is deactivated. In order to activate it, simply click the Enable Slider option.

If you want to add more slides, you simply click the add new slide option. Once you decided how many slides your front page will have, you can start placing the title, image, link url (optional) and description (optional). Once you do that, you simply click save all changes.

Upload Logo

Click Upload Logo and a popup window will appear, that will enable you to place your own custom logo on the upper left corner.

Upload Favicon

Just like Upload Logo, simply click the Upload Favicon and upload your custom favicon.

Twitter, Facebook, RSS URI

Here you can simply write down the uri of your Facebook, Twitter and RSS URI.
