Theme Styles

Theme Profiles

We created some nice theme profiles using the different styles, colors and fonts, you can choose from in the theme administration. You can create your own profiles and even assign them to different menu items. Click on one of the profile images to load it.

Theme Layout

This theme comes with the default Warp6 module layout. The blue module positions allow to choose a module layout which defines the module alignment and proportions: equal, double or stack. You can easily add your own module layouts. The two available sidebars, highlighted in red, can be switched to the left or right side and their widths can easily be set in the theme administration. For modules in the blue and red positions you can choose different module styles. Take a look at the module variations page to get an overview.

    WordPress: Paste it to wp-content/plugins/widgetkit/widgets/slideset/styles
  4. Now you can select the styles "Balance Default" and "Balance Tabs Bar" in the settings of your Widgetkit Slideshow

Social Icons

As a little extra, the Balance theme offers a set of social icons. They are easy to add to your content and are part of our editable Adobe Fireworks Image Source Files.

<ul class="social-icons">
	<li class="twitter"><a href="#"></a></li>
