With this theme, you can change the “Copyright” name in the footer. By default, it’s setup to show this:
Similar to the main menu background colour and padding tutorial, this one is for the footer area — which has a white background by default.
This tutorial involves a few options that coincide with one another when you want to add a background colour to your main menu container. When we do this, the menu items will be touching right up against the sides of the block container that gets a background colour.
This is probably an unusual and unique feature for a theme, but with Incept, you can adjust the width of your left column where your logo goes. Why would you do this?
- For visual aethetics to create a wider column
- For adding a logo that needs a wider column
You don’t have to make it wider, you can also make it smaller if you wish…right down to 0 pixels. Actually, the column width is done in percentage % instead of pixels. This makes it adjust to responsive devices of varying sizes. By default, the column is set to 8% in width.
When you perform a clean install of this theme, your default setting is to show a Site Title in your header instead of a logo. Because of this theme’s design, it was created to use a text based title in the main header area while keeping the logo to the left vertical column.
Incept offers optional custom widget styles that changes the look to widgets when applied. When we say “optional”, we mean that they are available to you if the “Widget CSS Classes” plugin is installed and activated. Unfortunately, WordPress does not have this feature capability built into it, so we need a plugin to add this function. There are not a lot of plugins available that can do this, but the one I recommend is called “Widget CSS Classes” by C.M. Kendrick.
As with most themes, you get sidebars to publish widgets to. This theme offers up to 29 sidebar positions, at least 3 of them for the WooCommerce plugin when enabled. This introduction and tutorial is in two parts, one for the actual sidebars and the other redirects you to a more indepth introduction of how sidebars work…specifically dynamic sidebars.
Incept is the perfect theme designed for your WooCommerce shop based and built on the upcoming Bootstrap 4 which makes it ideal for today’s responsive websites. Due to its flexibility, Incept can also be used for other types of websites like information based business, or even a modern style of blog. So if you do not need an online store, you can keep WooCommerce disabled from the customizer.
