Customizer

The Customizer is a WordPress's built-in framework for live-previewing any change to your WordPress site. You can customize various aspects of the theme and the site, from colors and layouts to widgets, menus, and more. Apart the standard options that present in the customizer there are some options added by the Higo theme.

You can try the Customizer and it's options without even activating the theme. Just install the theme, go to AppearanceThemes and click Live preview button.

If the theme is already activated, you can open the Customizer by going to AppearanceCustomize.

Customizer options

All custom theme options are pretty self-explanatory. One thing that is worth mentioning specifically is Typography.

Typography

For the sakes of simplicity we decided not to include any typography fields. Simply because in most cases users end up adding additional CSS styles to adjust typography to their liking. There're so many things you can tweak about fonts. So in Higo everything that is related to changing font family, size, weight, etc. is done via Additional CSS section in the Customizer. That makes things simpler, faster and more easy to use.

Let's say you want to change the font to one the Google Web Fonts. First you need to select your fonts. Once you pick your fonts and customized them, from the Embed Font section select @IMPORT option.

Next you just copy the code to the Additional CSS section in the Customizer like this:

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Yantramanav:300,400,500');

body {
    font-family: 'Yantramanav', sans-serif;
}

If you want to add additional fonts, for example for the headings, you can select multiple fonts in the Google Web Fonts panel and your code would look something like this:

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather:400,700|Yantramanav:400,500,700');

body {
    font-family: 'Yantramanav', sans-serif;
}

h1,.h1,
h2,.h2,
h3,.h3,
h4,.h4,
h5,.h5,
h6,.h6 {
    font-family: 'Merriweather', serif;
    font-weight: 700;
}
