To access the Show + Tell theme options look for the ‘Show + Tel’ link towards the bottom of the admin menu with a cog icon. You will see the options are split between 3 sub pages:

General Options

Site Logo

Here you can upload your custom site logo which will override the default Show + Tell theme logo. The recommended width for the logo is 250px wide, which is the main width of the sidebar. Set the height according to your logos design. If you want your logo to be optimised for retina display then upload a logo which is double the size, i.e. 500px wide.


Footer

Here you can add your custom footer text. You can add plain text or HTML tags.


Blog Options

Here you can change the blog header title which is used on the blog homepage. By default it’s ‘blog’ but you may want it to be something different.


Custom CSS

Here you can add custom css code to override or add style to the Show + Tell theme. This is handy for small quick CSS changes.

For any major CSS code / changes you should really use the Show + Tell child theme. See the child theme section.

Google Analytics

Here you can paste your Google Analytics tracking code. This will be added to the head of your site as required by Google Analytics to work correctly.

Design / Style Options

Theme Colour Skin

The Show + Tell theme comes with some rather nice preset colour skins. These skins affect the color of key elements of the theme such as the sidebar, body background and headings etc. If you don’t want to use a colour skin then you can select the first default option.


Skin Colour Contrast

This option works along with the preset colour skin option above. It allows you to easily change the contrast combinations of the colour skins. For example, you may want a dark sidebar and a light body background, or a dark sidebar and a dark body background etc. Play around with this option to see its full effect, its rather clever!


Primary Theme Colour

Here you can set your own primary colour to be used by the theme. The primary colour is used for elements like hover states, button colour and various other key places. This option will override the default primary colour set by the theme and any colour skins.


Secondary Theme Colour

Here you can set your own secondary colour to be used by the theme. This option will override the secondary colour set by the theme and any colour skins.

Portfolio Options

Portfolio Post Type Label

The portfolio works by adding a custom post type to WordPress. We have developed the Show + Tell theme to be very flexible based on your content. So here you can set a custom label for the custom portfolio post type. The default is ‘Portfolio’ but it could be ‘Work’ or ‘Projects’ for example.


Portfolio Post Type Slug

As mentioned above, the portfolio post type is flexible and here you can set a custom slug to be used for the portfolio post type. The default is ‘portfolio’, but it could be ‘work’ or ‘projects’ for example. The slug is used to access the portfolio page and posts i.e. http://yourtheme.com/portfolio

Update Permalink Settings

After changing the portfolio post type, you will probably need to flush and update your WordPress permalink settings for your changes to work. To do this, simply go to Settings > Permalinks and click on the Save Changes button at the bottom.


Number of Columns

Here you choose how many columns you want to be displayed for the portfolio homepage


Thumbnail Margin (px)

If you would like to add a margin around each thumnail image on the portfolio homepage then you can set this here in px’s. By default there is no margin applied.


Display Portfolio Page Header

Here you can choose if you want to display the page header for the portfolio homepage or not. By default no header is shown.


Single Page Layout

Here you can set the default layout for each portfolio post single page. Fixed or Fluid. This is a global option but can be overridden within each post page.

Social Options

Social Networks

These options don’t need much explaining really. Simply add the URLs to each of your social network accounts. This will make a linked social icon display for each account you have added a URL for, to appear within the page header on the right.
