This theme is built on the very powerful S5 Vertex Framework, which comes packed with amazing features! Learn More About Vertex…
Every theme built on Vertex also comes with its own unique theme specific options applicable to that particular theme such as highlight colors, social icons, and much more. These features are in addition to the standard functions of Vertex, and are still controlled through the very user friendly interface of Vertex. This page will document the features specific to this theme.
Below is a screenshot that shows all the theme specific features available in the user friendly Vertex admin:
Set your own custom color scheme with the built in highlight color. There are 2 custom highlight colors you can set. These colors control menu items, titles, buttons, hover over effects, and much more. You can set these colors to any color that you want. Below is an example of how this works.
By default we have this disabled on the demo, but you can enable the active menu item and it will show as in the below image:
The image and content fader is published to the Custom 1 position. When there is no widget published to it, it will collapse and leave 175px header area described in the next section below “header background image”. The Custom 2 position is designed to not have any left or right spacing and to stretch full width so you can show more of your portfolio here. We published the tab show to this position and it shows like the below. On hover over the widget title hides so you can navigate on any content that you have in this area. The Custom 3 position can be seen on the “contact” page and is where we have published the S5 Google Map It widget.
We designed the custom_1 position so that you can publish an image fader such as our image and content fader to it and have the menu, logo, etc lay on top of it. Like you see exampled in the homepage of this design. When you don’t have anything published to the custom_1 position the below option allows you to then input a background URL so that you will have something show in this area on your sub pages. The height is set to 175px but this can also be edited by opening up the theme.css file and around line 656 look for “#s5_headerbackground”. To set your image, just throw an image into your “images” folder in the root of your site, not the “wp-content/themes/s5_bluegroup/images” folder. Then just enter in your image name for example, image.jpg
Easily link to a social media site with the built in social icons found in the header of this theme. Simply enter the url of your social site in the configuration and the icon will automatically appear. To disable an icon simply leave the url blank for that particular icon.
Choose to enable or disable uppercase letters on most menu items, buttons, titles and more.
In the Vertex admin area you can set a company address and phone number that will show up in the footer area of the website.
