Atik is fully compatible with the WordPress live customizer. All the theme related options reside there so you can have control over your site’s customization from one central place.
Panels Quick view
Under Appearance> Customize you will be able to manage the majority of the theme settings. Options related to the theme layout can be found in subcategories under the theme options tab. For now, let’s take a quick look at the Customizer panel.
Theme Options Panel
Category pages can optionally have a header with a background image (this is where the two logo options under the Site Identity panel tab come handy). This section allows you to customise the appearance of the header image by blending it’s opacity with a solid color background.
There are two built in styles for displaying the products at the category pages. Switching to these two styles should take effect instantly at the customizer so you can check each style on the fly. For best mobile experience, the theme loads the first style only for mobile devices.
You have the ability to select a number of columns for the category pages. If you want to use a sidebar, you can choose have 3 columns plus the additional sidebar column.
These are some additional straight-forward options regarding the appearance of related and up-sell products and the visibility of the “add to cart” button at the category pages.
Atik offers three layout options to display the posts at the blog page. Again you should be able to switch between the layouts and see the effect on the fly.
Additionally you can choose between 2 styles for displaying the featured image at the single posts and pages.
Layouts 1 & 2 show the excerpt of the post. This field lets you define the excerpt length in number of words.
