Please be patient while WordPress imports all the content.

Editing the theme’s elements

↑ Back to top

Vignette is a full site editing theme, thus you can edit most elements from the front end. In your Dashboard go to Appearance > Editor and there you can select and edit any element you like, change their color, font etc.

You can edit the global styles, to change the elements throughout the websites as shown in the picture below

Specific elements can be edited by selecting the template part you want to edit, like large header, small header or footer.

Template parts

Template parts are pre-designed sections that are included in page templates to organize and add structure to the theme to avoid having to repeat code. To edit a template part in your Dashboard go to Appearance > Editor > Template Parts. Note that when you edit a template part it will change in all sections of your website. You can always reset customizations if you make a mistake.

Template parts included in this theme are Header (Large), Header (Small), Header and Footer.

Animate blocks

↑ Back to top

Vignette enables you to animate any block using css3 animations when entering the screen, by adding classes to that block.

In the Advanced section of any block settings add the ‘animated‘ class. This class will tell the theme this block will animate. You need to combine this with another class to define which animation you will be using like ‘fadeIn‘.

Available animations are:

Fade effect

fadeIn fadeInRight fadeInLeft fadeInUp fadeInDown fadeInUpShort fadeInDownShort fadeInRightShort fadeInLeftShort

Flip & Rotate
