Customizer Icon Options

This article was last updated on the January 2, 2017.

In the following article, we’ll explore the stack specific options of Icon, without further ado, let’s get started.

As explained in the customizer introduction here open up the WordPress customizer to start, if you don’t already have Icon selected, you’ll need to change your stack to continue following this article.

If you haven’t already make sure you have the Icon stack set, click on Stack:

Select your Stack

Once you’ve clicked on Stack, you’ll see the stacks to select from, pick Icon:

Icon stack selected

Now you’ve selected the Stack, go back to the main section of the Customizer and click on Icon:

Click on Icon

Once you’ve clicked on Icon, you’ll see the Icon specific options like this:

Exploring Icon

The first option you’ll see is called Post Title Icon, this has a value of on or off, setting this to on, shows the post icon before the post itself like this:

Post icon on

If we change that and set Post Title Icon to Off, our blog post will then look like this:

Post Icon off

The remaining options are all Custom Color related, the options are:

  • Standard Post Custom Colors
  • Image Post Custom Colors
  • Gallery Post Custom Colors
  • Video Post Custom Colors
  • Audio Post Custom Colors
  • Quote Post Custom Colors
  • Link Post Custom Colors

All values either On or Off, setting the values to On per option, shows options to pick colors for that specific option with the color picker in the WordPress Customizer like this:

Select Custom Colors

As you can see in our above image, we’ve enabled Standard Post Custom colors, this is for the standard post type Post in WordPress and has allowed us to set a color for the post text (globally) and post background (also global), so setting these would effect all blog posts for example.

You can of course change any of those options as you want, they can be enabled and disabled one by one, you don’t need them all disabled or all enabled.

Congrats! You should now have a better understanding of how the Icon specific options work.
