Theme Options

CE4 Theme for WordPress includes many custom options allowing you to modify the appearance, behavior and feature set of your WordPress blog. To access these options, go to the WordPress Dashboard and look under Appearance > Theme Options1).

Basic Settings

Copyright / Attribution
The text which appears in the footer at the bottom of every page, usually a copyright notice. Replaces the “Copyright / Attribution” entered during theme setup in Lightroom; leave blank to fallback on Lightroom's setting.

Posts

Show post excerpts on the blog's front page (disable to show full posts).
When enabled, post excerpts will be displayed on the blog's front page; when disabled, the blog's front page will display articles in full.

Show “Featured Image” on blog Home page.
If a post has a featured image assigned, the image will appear with the post on the Home page.

Show “Featured Image” on single blog posts.
If a post has a featured image assigned, the image will appear ahead of the post content on the single post page.

Show “Featured Image” on archive pages.
If a post has a featured image assigned, its thumbnail will appear with the post on archive pages for categories, tags, dates and other taxonomies.

Image Attachment Pages

Display media title / caption / description.
Determines which pieces of data are displayed on individual attachment pages for images. When uploading an image, you may provide a separate Title, Caption and Description. You may edit this information for any image, at any time from within WordPress' Media Library, accessible via the dashboard.

Allow comments on single images.
Determines whether your blog accepts comments on individual image attachment pages.

Custom Graphics

The theme allows you to (optionally) provide graphics with which to brand your site. This includes a favicon, multiple renditions and versions of your masthead graphic (logo), and an icon for mobile Home screens.

You may upload these graphics directly within the Theme Options interface. Please ensure your /wp-content/ and/or /wp-content/uploads/ folder is writable.

Favicon
The favicon is a 16-by-16 pixel PNG or ICO icon that typically appears in the browser title bar or the tab in which your page is opened in the browser.

Apple Touch Icon
The theme allows the upload of one 152-by-152-pixel icon for use on mobile Home screens.

Primary Masthead Image
The primary masthead image will replace the Site Title and Tagline on your pages. The image may be of any size, though we recommend a maximum width of 960-pixels. On any device for which a separate masthead is not provided, the primary masthead will be used as a universal stand-in.

Primary Masthead Image for Retina Displays
A high-resolution version of the Primary Masthead Image which is served only to Apple's Retina display devices and other HiDPI displays >= 2x pixel-density. This rendition of the masthead should be 2x the width and height of the Primary Masthead Image. If no image is supplied for Retina displays, then the standard resolution Primary Masthead Image will be displayed instead.

Tablet Masthead Image
Allows you to upload a masthead image specifically for use on tablets and mid-sized displays. Generally not necessary unless your Primary Masthead Image is very large, i.e. in excess of 748-pixels in width. Image should be less than 748-pixels wide. If no Tablet Masthead Image is provided, the Primary Masthead Image will be used by tablets.

Tablet Masthead Image for Retina Displays
A high-resolution version of the Tablet Masthead Image which is served only to Apple's Retina display devices and other HiDPI displays >= 2x pixel-density. This rendition should be 2x the width and height of the Tablet Masthead Image. If no image is provided, Retina display tablets such as the new iPad will instead be served the standard resolution Tablet Masthead Image.

Mobile Masthead Image
A masthead image sized specifically for small display devices such as the iPhone and other mobile devices. This image should be not more than 300-pixels in width. If no image is supplied as Mobile Masthead Image, mobile devices will instead use the Primary Masthead Image.

Mobile Masthead Image for Retina Displays
A high-resolution version of the Mobile Masthead Image which is served only to Apple's Retina display devices and other HiDPI displays >= 2x pixel-density. This rendition should be 2x the width and height of the Mobile Masthead Image. If no image is provided, Retina display tablets such as the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 will instead be served the standard resolution Mobile Masthead Image.

Page Layout

For each page template comprising the theme, an entry appears in the Page Layout section of the Theme Options.

These options allow you to choose a layout for each page type separately – a one-column layout, or a two-column layout with the sidebar appearing either on the left or right of the page. For two-column layouts, you may also assign a sidebar to appear on the page.

Sidebars will appear in the theme for any page in which the following conditions are both true:

  • A two-column layout is active on for the page.
  • The page has been assigned its own sidebar.

“Active” sidebars may then be adopted for use on other pages.

For example, if you want the same sidebar to be used on both Archive and Search Results pages, then:

  • Set Archive Page Layout (archive.php) to use a two-column layout.
  • Select Archive Sidebar for the page.
  • Set Search Results Page Layout (search.php) also to use a two-column layout, then assign Archive Sidebar here as well.

In this example, the Archive Sidebar will be created and will appear on both the Archive and Search Results pages. The “Search Sidebar” will not be created and will therefore not be available for use on any page.

You may populate a sidebar with widgets or content from within the WordPress Dashboard, under Appearance > Widgets.

Advanced Settings

Supplemental Image Classes

Determines which class(es) are added to the <img /> element by default when images are inserted into pages or posts using the “Add Media” features. Enter either “border” or “shadow” to apply visual effects. You may also write-in any class(es) of your own. If writing in multiple classes, separate classes using a space.

Enable Lightbox Support
Enables Lightbox support for in-post thumbnail galleries. If disabled, thumbnail images will link to image attachment pages.

Lightbox for Desktop Browsers
Determines which Javascript presentation method is used to display large images on desktop browsers.

Lightbox for Mobile Browsers
Determines which Javascript presentation method is used to display large images on mobile browsers.

Galleria JS

Enable Galleria
Enables support for the Galleria Slideshow in posts and pages. If disabled, any galleries assigned to use Galleria will fallback on the Lightbox gallery options above.

Use larger images for Retina and HiDPI displays.

When enabled, Galleria will load larger renditions on HiDPI displays when larger rendition images are available. Images are called on-the-fly, so enabling this feature will not impact the speed of the initial page load.

Use this feature with caution! Use assumes that you are taking deliberate care in preparing your images for upload, managing both image dimensions and file size. If this is not the case – for example, if you are uploading JPEGs directly from your camera's card – this feature can be extremely detrimental to your site.

1) The Theme Options area will only be visible when CE4 Theme for WordPress is your blog's active theme, as set in Appearance > Themes.
