The General Settings tab has options relevant to the entire site such as logo, favicon, default intro content, breadcrumbs, twitter, cufon, analytics and more.
You'll want to spend some time with this tab and get acquainted with all of the settings before moving on.
To use your own logo make sure the "Custom Image Logo" option is checked. Next click on the "Upload" button and a popup will appear. After browsing for your logo image and uploading click on "Insert this Image" to finish.
In case you do not wish to use a logo you can also display your site title text. To do this make sure the "Display Site Title" option is selected.
A favicon is a small icon that browsers use for your website. If a website has a favicon then you will usually see it to the left of the address bar or inside a tab.
Default intro text
The Intro Text is the combination of the page title and a teaser text. The setting you choose here will be used as the default for all of your pages and posts. You can still override this setting on a per item basis while you are editing the specific page or post.
The teaser text accepts shortcodes so feel free to experiment. There is also an option for custom html in case you need it.
Also, when editing your posts there will be another option here called "image_banner" which you can use an image for the intro to create a nice effect.
This is the default sidebar layout that you use for your pages. Let's say that by default you want all of your pages to use a full width layout, you can change that here. You can still override this setting and change the layout when editing your individual pages.
Twitter API Settings
To display your tweets from Twitter on your Mysitemyway WordPress theme you'll first have to set up a developer account with Twitter to get your API keys. This process is very easy and only takes a minute.
Extra header text
The text you place here will display in your header someplace around the navigation or the social icons (depending on your theme). This is usually used for phone numbers, contact info, or something similar.
Disable comments on pages
Check this if you wish to remove comments from all of your pages. You can also remove them on a page by page basis by unchecking the "Allow Comments" option when editing the page.
A lot of the theme features such as headings, intro text, buttons, etc etc, will have their font replaced via Cufon.
If you do not want to use Cufon then you will want to check this to disable it.
The breadcrumbs display just below the Intro Text. They are links which help the user navigate through your pages. You can choose to disable them here or set the delimiter. The delimiter is the symbol that appears between each link.
Some common examples would be:
> , / - >> // ::
Google Analytics is a traffic statistics service which is invaluable to webmasters. You can sign up for free here, http://www.google.com/analytics/.
After setting up your account you will be given some tracking code. Paste it here to use it with your theme.
<style>...</style>So be sure to remove those before hand.
So be sure to remove those before hand.
What you enter here will be added verbatim to your header. You can enter whatever additional headers you want here, even references to stylesheets. You can use this for example to add google fonts to your site.
