Capacity Theme Options

The Capacity theme is a bold, well-designed template that includes some unique layout features, including a large logo. For example, the Capacity main menu is located at the very top of the header instead of under the logo. The Capacity theme options also include a mosaic-style carousel area which is different from most of the other Stencil themes. Capacity is also a theme that allows you to easily display blog posts on your homepage, which is great for search engine optimization. You can customize the Capacity theme in a variety of ways, starting with the four basic styles available. Then use the Capacity theme options in the Stencil Editor (“Customize” menu) to change colors, fonts and homepage settings to fit your brand’s needs.

Here is a complete list of Capacity theme options available in the Customize menu:
