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 layouts:

  • 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. The Not Found and Search Results sections will always be visible, the other sections won’t always be visible. Use the Vantage main menu to navigate to the archive page you want to change. For example, to change the blog page layout, navigate to your blog. Once viewing the blog page, a Blog section will appear and the following settings will be available.
