Page Template Settings

You’ll find the Page Template Settings section in the first section of the WordPress Customizer at AppearanceCustomize. Page Template Settings provide a way to change settings for the following pages:

  • Blog page
  • Archives
    • Date Archives
    • Author Archives
    • Taxonomy Archives (Categories and Tags)
  • Custom Taxonomy Archives (Custom Post Types)
  • Not Found (404 Page Not Found)
  • Search Results

To make use of the page template settings, navigate to AppearanceCustomizePage Template Settings. It isn’t possible to navigate to the Not Found or Search Results page in the Customizer, as a result, these sections will always be visible.

To edit a blog, archive, or custom taxonomy page, navigate to the page in the Customizer using your website’s menu or visible links. Once viewing the page the relevant page settings section will be displayed.

In each section you’ll find the following settings:

Page Layout:

Default: Displays the page title, content area and sidebar.
No Sidebar: Displays the page title and content area without the sidebar.
Full Width – No Sidebar: Displays the content area without the sidebar at full screen width. Intended for use with Page Builders that require a full width template (Page Builder by SiteOrigin doesn’t require this layout for full width).

Header Overlap

The header overlap setting can be seen in use in the Corp theme screenshot. It’s best used if you have a full width image or slideshow below the header. A full width stretched row can be created using Page Builder by SiteOrigin or the page builder of your choice. This setting goes best with the Header Margin and Page Title settings disabled.

Disabled: The default, the header won’t overlap the content.
Enabled: The header will overlap the site content, the header background will be transparent. The header will use the colors set in the Customizer Theme Settings.
Enabled – Light Text: The header will overlap the site content and use light text, ideal for dark images.
Enabled – Dark Text: The header will overlap the site content and use dark text, ideal for light images.

Header Bottom Margin:

Include the margin below the header of your site. If you’ve already disabled the page title and have a slider or banner at the top of your page then this setting is perfect to make it flush with the menu.

Page Title:

Display the page title.

Include the margin above the footer. If you have a banner or slideshow at the bottom of your page then this setting is perfect to make it flush with the footer.

Remove the footer widgets and footer widget area.
