Based on the theme, the set of customizing options may vary.

  2. Click Appearance on the left toolbar.
  3. Choose Customize. The Customizer displays.
  4. Choose your customization options. All modifications display in the site preview. You can navigate your site to preview changes on all site pages. Each theme contains a set of core option, including:

  • Site Title & Tagline – Type your site title and tagline.
  • Color Options – Each theme has unique color selector options. Change your site’s color here.
