Theme Options

TTG CE3 Theme for WordPress includes many custom options allowing you to modify the appearance, behavior and feature set of your WordPress blog. To access these options, go to the WordPress Dashboard and look under Appearance > Theme Options1).

Basic Settings

Copyright / Attribution
The text which appears in the footer at the bottom of every page, usually a copyright notice. Replaces the “Copyright / Attribution” entered during theme setup in Lightroom; leave blank to fallback on Lightroom's setting.

Posts

Show post excerpts on the blog's front page (disable to show full posts).
When enabled, post excerpts will be displayed on the blog's front page; when disabled, the blog's front page will display articles in full.

Display author of posts.
Displays the name of the post author in the metadata footer of each post. Disabled by default, because if you're the only contributor to your blog then it seems redundant to constantly reiterate your name on posts. But if your blog has multiple authors, then you may want to enable this.

Show “Featured Image” on blog Home page.
If a post has a featured image assigned, the image will appear with the post on the Home page.

Show “Featured Image” on single blog posts.
If a post has a featured image assigned, the image will appear ahead of the post content on the single post page.

Show “Featured Image” on archive pages.
If a post has a featured image assigned, its thumbnail will appear with the post on archive pages for categories, tags, dates and other taxonomies.

“Featured Image” position: enabled above the post title, disabled below.
As it says, displays the featured image either above the post title or below it, depending on your preference. When positioned beneath the title, the title is contained within the featured-image <div />, and when positioned above the the title, the title is external; this is intentional, as it may have implications when implementing custom styling.

Choose your preferred style of displaying feature posts, or disable them altogether. Set the maximum number of posts to display.

Image Attachment Pages

Display media title / caption / description.
Determines which pieces of data are displayed on individual attachment pages for images. When uploading an image, you may provide a separate Title, Caption and Description. You may edit this information for any image, at any time from within WordPress' Media Library, accessible via the dashboard.

Allow comments on single images.
Determines whether your blog accepts comments on individual image attachment pages.

Custom Graphics

The theme allows you to (optionally) provide graphics with which to brand your site. This includes a favicon, multiple renditions and versions of your masthead graphic (logo), and icons for mobile Home screens.

You may upload these graphics directly within the Theme Options interface. Please ensure your /wp-content/ and/or /wp-content/uploads/ folder is writable.

Favicon
The favicon is a 16-by-16 pixel PNG icon that typically appears in the browser title bar or the tab in which your page is opened in the browser.

Primary Masthead Image
The primary masthead image will replace the Site Title and Tagline on your pages. The image may be of any size, though we recommend a maximum width of 960-pixels. On any device for which a separate masthead is not provided, the primary masthead will be used as a universal stand-in.

Primary Masthead Image for Retina Displays
A high-resolution version of the Primary Masthead Image which is served only to Apple's Retina display devices and other HiDPI displays >= 2x pixel-density. This rendition of the masthead should be 2x the width and height of the Primary Masthead Image. If no image is supplied for Retina displays, then the standard resolution Primary Masthead Image will be displayed instead.

Tablet Masthead Image
Allows you to upload a masthead image specifically for use on tablets and mid-sized displays. Generally not necessary unless your Primary Masthead Image is very large, i.e. in excess of 748-pixels in width. Image should be less than 748-pixels wide. If no Tablet Masthead Image is provided, the Primary Masthead Image will be used by tablets.

Tablet Masthead Image for Retina Displays
A high-resolution version of the Tablet Masthead Image which is served only to Apple's Retina display devices and other HiDPI displays >= 2x pixel-density. This rendition should be 2x the width and height of the Tablet Masthead Image. If no image is provided, Retina display tablets such as the new iPad will instead be served the standard resolution Tablet Masthead Image.

Mobile Masthead Image
A masthead image sized specifically for small display devices such as the iPhone and other mobile devices. This image should be not more than 300-pixels in width. If no image is supplied as Mobile Masthead Image, mobile devices will instead use the Primary Masthead Image.

Mobile Masthead Image for Retina Displays
A high-resolution version of the Mobile Masthead Image which is served only to Apple's Retina display devices and other HiDPI displays >= 2x pixel-density. This rendition should be 2x the width and height of the Mobile Masthead Image. If no image is provided, Retina display tablets such as the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 will instead be served the standard resolution Mobile Masthead Image.

Apple Touch Icons
The theme allows the upload of four icons to be used when the website is added to the visitor's mobile Home screen. The 57-by-57-pixel square is used for standard resolution iPhones (iPhone 3GS and older), the 72-by-72-pixel square is used for standard resolution iPads (the iPad and iPad 2), the 114-by-114-pixel square is used by Retina iPhones (iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5), and the 144-by-144-pixel icon is used by Retina iPads (the new iPad).

The i-devices will automatically round icon corners and add the bezeled glare effect when displaying the icon on-screen.

Page Layout

For each page template comprising the theme, an entry appears in the Page Layout section of the Theme Options.

These options allow you to choose a layout for each page type separately – a one-column layout, or a two-column layout with the sidebar appearing either on the left or right of the page. For two-column layouts, you may also assign a sidebar to appear on the page.

Sidebars will appear in the theme for any page in which the following conditions are both true:

  • A two-column layout is active on for the page.
  • The page has been assigned its own sidebar.

“Active” sidebars may then be adopted for use on other pages.

For example, if you want the same sidebar to be used on both Archive and Search Results pages, then:

  • Set Archive Page Layout (archive.php) to use a two-column layout.
  • Select Archive Sidebar for the page.
  • Set Search Results Page Layout (search.php) also to use a two-column layout, then assign Archive Sidebar here as well.

In this example, the Archive Sidebar will be created and will appear on both the Archive and Search Results pages. The “Search Sidebar” will not be created and will therefore not be available for use on any page.

You may populate a sidebar with widgets or content from within the WordPress Dashboard, under Appearance > Widgets.

Advanced Settings

These settings are for advanced users and enable the theme's advanced features. They should only be modified deliberately (i.e. no experimental clicking!)

Supplemental Image Classes

Determines which class(es) are added to the <img /> element by default when images are inserted into pages or posts using the “Add Media” features. Use 'hd-large' or 'hd-full' to load large-rendition or full-rendition images for Retina and HiDPI displays, respectively. You may also write-in any class(es) of your own. If writing in multiple classes, separate classes using a space.

Pages & Posts

Use larger images for Retina and HiDPI displays.

When enabled, images for which larger renditions are available will be replaced on HiDPI displays by the next larger image rendition. Medium-size images will be replaced by large images; large-size images will be replaced by full-size images. This ensures that images retain sharpness on HiDPI screens, such as on Apple's Retina display.

These rules only apply to displays greater than 600-pixels in width, so will not apply to most mobile phones.

Use this feature with caution! Use assumes that you are taking deliberate care in preparing your images for upload, managing both image dimensions and file size. If this is not the case – for example, if you are uploading JPEGs directly from your camera's card – this feature can be extremely detrimental to your site.

If site performance is of greater concern than the visual fidelity of your images, then do not enable this feature. Even when enabled, however, these features should not impact site performance on standard-resolution displays.

Photoswipe JS

Use larger images for Retina and HiDPI displays.

When enabled, Photoswipe will load larger renditions on HiDPI displays when larger rendition images are available. Images are called on-the-fly, so enabling this feature will not impact the speed of the initial page load.

Use this feature with caution! Use assumes that you are taking deliberate care in preparing your images for upload, managing both image dimensions and file size. If this is not the case – for example, if you are uploading JPEGs directly from your camera's card – this feature can be extremely detrimental to your site.

Galleria JS

Use larger images for Retina and HiDPI displays.

When enabled, Galleria will load larger renditions on HiDPI displays when larger rendition images are available. Images are called on-the-fly, so enabling this feature will not impact the speed of the initial page load.

Use this feature with caution! Use assumes that you are taking deliberate care in preparing your images for upload, managing both image dimensions and file size. If this is not the case – for example, if you are uploading JPEGs directly from your camera's card – this feature can be extremely detrimental to your site.
