Customizing typography ↑ Back to top
Skeptical is customizable in its styling thanks to the background color picker and advanced controls over typography used for post headers, post meta information, widgetized sidebar headers, navigation and paragraph text.
To customize fonts, go to theme options and the Typography tab.
Choose between web-safe fonts and Google fonts, which add unique characteristics to your website. Experiment with what looks best.
Adding a widgetized sidebar ↑ Back to top
You have the option to display “more posts from this category” next to each blog post on the home page (as shown on the demo) or a widgetized sidebar, where you can place widgets via the Appearance > Widgets page.
Enable “Display the sidebar” in theme options, or set the number of related posts.
Setting up the footer ↑ Back to top
Skeptical has a customizable footer space dedicated to specific posts and/or your latest Flickr images.
You must enable these regions in theme options, under the “Footer Options” tab.
To display certain posts in the dedicated three-post module in the footer, give the post module a title and add the tag name of posts you want to display.
For example, you must write a new post or edit an existing post, then add a tag like “featured” to the post. Publish or Update. Go to theme options and enter the “featured” tag in the footer region. It then pulls the latest three posts tagged “featured.”
For the Flickr module, find your Flickr ID from a site like idgettr and place it in the Flickr ID field.
