  • Formatting links, paragraphs...
  • Image settings

Logo & Favicon

  • Upload or Remove your chosen Logo image (must be .jpg, .png, .gif, .svg, .svgz)
  • Choose whether to adjust your logo to the Czr default: 250px x 100px
  • For best results, try uploading a logo with those maximum dimensions. If your logo is larger, you can check the “force logo dimensions” option to make it fit better to the theme
  • If there is no logo uploaded, Customizr will use your Site Title as Logo
  • Upload an alternative Logo for the Sticky Header feature (Optional)
  • Upload your chosen Favicon image (small image displayed in the browser’s address bar and tabs)
  • Supported favicon file format : ico, png, gif (deprecated since v3.4.8. Handled by WordPress as a core feature since WP v4.3.0)
Note: when migrating from one server to another (like from development to production for example), you might need to re-upload your logo and favicon.

Setting up the Site Layout

Setting the site layout was never that easy before. You can choose any wide or boxed layouts for your whole site, header topbar, main header and footer layouts. 

Changing the main ( primary ) color

One of the first things that your site requires to create an identity of its own is a  colour  and  colour  scheme. This can be changed by changing the primary color ( colour ). Access this feature from the customizer, by clicking onGlobal Settings > Primary color of the theme. There are unlimited colors to choose from. You may also add the color code in the color picker field. This choice reflects in small and big ways in all elements of your site - the header, the borders, the link  colours , the widgets and so on.

Google Fonts

  • Customizr includes a font picker allowing you to easily select some of the best Google Fontcombinations for your headings (html tags H1, H2, … Hn ) and paragraphs (html tag p).
  • You have the option to select one single font for your entire website, among a selection of cool fonts.
  • You can select web safe fonts which are installed on most of the computers in the world, if you prefer.

Social links

Select where you want to display your social links, or deselect to hide

There are four locations where Social Icons may be displayed:
  • Header -
    Go to Appearance -> Customize -> Header -> Design and Layout
    Find the setting -> Social links in header
  • Footer -
    Go to Appearance -> Customize -> Footer -> Footer Global Settings
    Find the setting -> Social links in footer
  • Left sidebar -
    Go to Appearance -> Customize -> Sidebars -> Socials in Sidebars
    Find the setting -> Social links in left sidebar
  • Right sidebar -
    Go to Appearance -> Customize -> Sidebars -> Socials in Sidebars

  • The theme comes with a fade effect when hovering links, activated by default. You can disable it by unchecking the option.
  • You can display a link icon next to a link to identify it clearly
  • You can choose to activate the page link in a new browser tab
