Most of the theme settings and options are found in other sub-panels within this panel, but some are placed in standard WP panels to support the “custom-logo”, “custom-header” and “custom-background” features.

Basic Layout & Look

Content Width ~ Choose a maximum width for the site content (between the margins). This affects the header, footer, navigation bar and page content that is not assigned "Full Width".
Standard Spacing
Choose how much spacing in pixels to be used for a number of elements found in the page content. (IE: margins, body, image, post separation)

Base Font Weight
Choose the font weight to use in all non-bolded text. If you choose a weight larger than 700 Bold, then bolded text will actually display thinner than non-bolded text. Most fonts do not support all available font weights, they will default either Normal or Bold if the chosen weight is not supported.
Font Family ~ If using a Google Font, you must check the box below to load the font’s stylesheet.
You can enter a comma delimited list of standard system fonts (IE: Verdana, Arial,Arial Narrow). Or you can enter the name of any Google Web Font, and the theme will load the appropriate font file from Google’s API.
