The following article reviews the general settings area in Flothemes. Here you will be able to apply global settings across your site.
The colors section allows you to add colors to the following items: Links on your site, the menu and sub menu colors, mobile menu color and menu hover colors.
Simply click on select color, enter a # value or select a color using the color picker:
The Misc section has 2 options, turning on fully clickable grid views, this is great for usability of grid views, and also the option for the “from” field in the contact form. This field allows you to use the clients email in the “from” field when they submit a contact form. NOTE! It is recommended to keep this turned off, as many hosting providers will block emails when the users email is in the from field.
Titles and Links
The title and links section is the global settings for the gallery slugs (that is the URL structure for gallery post types i.e. gallery/gallery-name). Other options include the page titles for blog (if selected in Settings > Reading), the category, tags, author and search page titles. There is also an option for the label if no search results are found, and the label for “read more” in grid views:
Tracking Code / Analytics
In the following section you can add any tracking codes for your site, including Google analytics. Just copy and paste the code and it will be added to the header of the site.
The favicon is the icon in the browser tab like our Flothemes icon:
Make sure to upload a .ico file to use on your site.
Turning on the admin bar option will allow logged in admins to see the following bar at the top of your site:
Its a great tool for allowing you to quickly edit, pages and posts. Only admin users can see the tool bar.
Import / Export
The import and export area allows 3 things:
- Importing Demo content – NOTE! Only do this if you are starting a new site.
- Import – import of a Flothemes export file. This will apply all Flothemes settings from another site, or an old version of your site. Great for using as a simple settings backup.
- Export – exporting of your Flothemes settings, to be used as a backup. This is not a database back up, just a settings backup. Its also great if creating multiple sites that are using the same theme and settings.
