Elmastudio – Weta Premium WordPress Theme
1. Theme Options
Under Appearance → Customize you will find all customization options for the Weta theme.
Under Logo you can upload your own logo image to use instead of the default site title and description text. You can then uncheck the “Display Header Text” option in the Site Identity tab.
In the Colors tab you can change your default site title and description text color, the background color, your text link color, the Header and Footer background colors as well as the Author, Quote and Numbered Recent Posts background colors (if you have multiple widgets e.g. of the Quote widget active on your website, the background color will change for all of theme).
Under Theme Options you can choose to fix-position the main menu (on wider screens only), show the header search form, include the shop elements (a header shop menu as well as the cart button) in your header (please use this option only, if you have the WooCommerce plugin active).
You can also hide all light grey border lines of the Weta design for a more minimal design, hide Featured Images on single posts, show an automatic excerpt text on blog archive or/and the default blog.
Next you can show a Read More link for Recent posts on the Weta Front page, activate the special Social link icons for the Jetpack social link feature that we created to match the Weta theme design.
You can also upload a smaller version of you website logo or a small website icon under Media → Add New to show left-aligned in your main menu. After the image is uploaded just copy and paste the image URL into the Theme options settings. This way a small logo the logo size should be 68 pixel in height and not more than 200px in width (for a Retina-optimized logo image, the actual visible size on the website then will be 34px in height and max. 100px in width).
If you want to use the Jetpack Blog subscribe widget (or the Mailchimp for WordPress plugin widget) in the special Weta Subscribe Blog widget area, you can also customize the “Subscribe Now” button text and the “No thanks” close text in the light box here in the theme options.
2. Custom Menu
To add your own custom main menu in the Weta header area you can create a custom menu under Appearance → Menus. Here you can include pages, categories, tags, custom links or post formats and save your menu in the Menu Settings (see at the bottom of your new menu) as “Primary Menu” at the bottom of the menu settings. Now your custom menu will be the menu in your Weta header area.
Next to the main menu you can also add an additional Header Top Menu by creating another custom menu (sub menus are not supported here) and mark this menu as „Header Top Menu“ in the Menu settings. This optional menu will be visible at the left top of your header.
To show your Social Links with icons in the Weta header and footer area you can create a custom Social Links menu (or use the same as you already created for your sidebar Custom menu widget). You just need to mark the Social menu as “Header Social Menu” or/and „Footer Social Menu“ in the Menu settings.
3. Typography Styles

Dropcaps – To highlight a paragraph with a drop cap letter you can just wrap the first letter of the paragraph in a span tag with the CSS class of “dropcap”.[code] <span class=”dropcap”>F</span>irst letter…
Intro Text – To highlight a paragraph (e.g. the first paragraph of your text) in a bigger font size, you can wrap the paragraph in a p tag with the CSS class of “intro”.[code] <p class=”intro”>Your intro text here…</p>
Pull Quotes – You can use pull quotes on your text, by wrapping a sentence or short text in a p tag with the CSS class “pull-left” or “pull-right” for left or right aligned pull quotes.[code] <p class=”pull-left”>This is a left-aligned pull quote text.</p>
4. WooCommerce Support

7. Child Theme for Customizations
If you want to customize the Weta theme a little further and you need to change the code in the styleeheet (style.css) or in any of the theme template files, please consider creating a child theme for your changes. Using a child theme is quite easy and saves all your individual changes from being over written by a future update of the Weta parent theme.
