The Customizer is used to change settings for your site and what visitors see on the homepage.

Settings in the Customizer include:

  • Site Identity – Site title and tagline
  • Menus – create and assign a custom menu as a utility navigation menu or the main navigation menu for the site.
  • Homepage Settings – choose a page from your site to act as your homepage by selecting the radio button for “A static page” under “Your homepage displays”, and then select the page from the drop-down menu.
  • General – general settings for the site such as the site’s Google Analytics tracking number, and pattern kit setting for use in the header and Section blocks.
  • Header Call to Action – create a “Call to Action” button that will appear in the header of your site and to the left of the search bar.
  • Footer – options for the global footer including a background image, address, phone number, email address, and custom URL for fundraising, if needed.
  • Mobile Options – options that effect how your site is viewed on mobile devices
  • Search – add the URLs of sites you would like to include as part of your site’s search feature
