With Influential, you can customize your website colours with special settings (selectors) which can be found in the customizer. This theme currently has over 80 colour settings to give you virtually unlimited colours for your site….use your imagination to create stunning colour concepts so that your site does not look like others who may be using Influential.
As it is common for most of our themes, you can show or hide various post and page elements such as:
Depending on the blog style you plan to use, each one uses different featured image sizes, while some may be more flexible, this tutorial gives you a guideline for you. Please note that I only provide widths in pixels (px) and not height, because your height can be almost anything you want…
The blog post summaries are the “intros” that you see when you first go to a blog. This is normally recognized when you see each summary with a title, perhaps a featured image, and then the “Read More” button or link. Post summaries are only part of a full post and will only show on the blog’s home page.
Changing your blog style is not just for layout, but also for what style of featured image you want.
Influential uses a very limited version of Bootstrap without all the added elements like buttons, progress bars, tabs, accordions, etc. This theme only uses the grid layout to achieve the responsive column structure that this theme is built on. This also comes in handy if you want to use “columns” in your pages, posts, or even a text widget.
Although this theme uses the popular Font Awesome icon set, you can use a plugin for more flexibility. This theme lets you disable Font Awesome that is already included if you want to use the plugin method. If you decide to use a plugin, I recommend Better Font Awesome.
Many themes offer some form of social networking capabilities, from comprehensive to basic links to profile pages. This theme gives you a social menu location within the footer area. Setting up your social menu items is just like the other menus, excerpt you are using the “ Custom Links ” option for each social network.
With this theme, you get several options to enable or disable certain plugin elements relating to:
- Font Awesome – On by default because this theme has it, but if you have a plugin that loads it, you can uncheck this
- Bootstrap – Inlfuential uses the Grid Layout of Bootstrap, but if you are using a plugin that has Bootstrap, uncheck this
- WooCommerce – If you plan on using WooCommerce, check this box
- bbPress – If you plan on using bbPress, check this box
On the live demo site, I have this setup:
Influential includes three site header styles that you can choose:
