Custom theme options allow you to quickly change specific styling aspect of your Weebly site without touching code.
A new feature that Weebly Tricks Services offers to its client (i.e., you) is custom theme options. Custom theme options allow you to control pretty much any styling aspect of your Weebly site without ever touching a line of code.
As an owner of a Weebly site, you may have noticed that some theme options may already exist in your theme under "Theme>Theme Options". These inherent theme options usually allow you to make your theme full width or to adjust the navigation's positioning -- nothing truly specific to your site's styling needs.
But let's say you want the ability to hide the date in your Weebly blog. You're not too sure which code to modify and how, nor do you want to ask your web designer to do it because it's so minuscule and you may decide in a day that you want to show your blog dates. What do you do? Solution: Custom theme options!
Custom Theme Options
Enter custom theme options. If you have a specific style aspect of your Weebly theme that you'd like to control without touching code, Weebly Tricks Servicescan install custom theme options for your theme.
In this case, Weebly Tricks Services would install a toggle switch in your site under "Theme>Theme Options" that would allow you to hide or show your blog date with the simple flick of the toggle switch. It's in your complete control -- no need to touch code and no need to hire your web designer.
Examples Of Custom Theme Options
Custom theme options come in 4 different styling mechanism: Toggle, Color, Pixel, and Drop Down. Each one of these 4 styling mechanisms can help you be in more control of the custom styling needs of your site's theme.
While custom theme options would be specific to your site's styling needs, some examples of custom theme options with these 4 styling mechanisms can include, but surely aren't limited to:
Toggle (On/Off Switch): Hide or show an area or item(s) with the flick of a switch.
Color (Color Adjustment): Change the color of an area or item by either manually adding a hex color code, or by browsing a color palette.
Pixel (Quantity Adjustment): Adjust the numbers for an area or item(s) by 1 pixel per click, such as padding, margin, height, width, etc.
Drop Down (Option List): Select an item from a drop down list -- that you'd create -- to apply styling changes to an area or item(s).
