Bizznis Theme Settings provide control over how the theme works. You will be able to control a lot of common and even advanced features from this menu. Some child themes may add additional settings fields, including the ability to select different color styles or set theme specific features such as a slider. Below you’ll find the items common to every child theme.
This lets you select the default layout for your entire site. On most of the child themes you’ll see these options:
- Content – Sidebar
- Sidebar – Content
- Sidebar – Content – Sidebar
- Content – Sidebar – Sidebar
- Sidebar – Sidebar – Content
- Full Width Content
These options can be extended or limited by the child theme. Additionally, many of the child themes do not allow different layouts on the home page as they have been designed for a specific home page layout.
This layout can also be overridden in the post/page/term layout options on each post/page/term as seen on the image below.
In the Bizznis Theme Settings you may change the site wide Content Archives options to control what displays in the site’s Archives. Archives include any pages using the blog template, category pages, tag pages, date archive, author archives, and the latest posts if there is no custom home page.
Show Excerpts instead of Full Content?
The first option allows you to display the post content or the post excerpt. The Display post content setting will display the entire post including HTML code up to thetag if used (this is HTML for the comment tag that is not displayed in the browser).
It may also be coupled with the second field “Limit content to [___] characters” to limit the content to a specific number of letters or spaces. This will strip any HTML, but allows for more precise and easily changed lengths than the excerpt.
The Display post excerpt setting will display the first 55 words of the post after also stripping any included HTML or the manual/custom excerpt added in the post edit screen.
The ‘Featured Image’ setting allows you to show a thumbnail of the first attached image or currently set featured image.
This option should not be used with the post content unless the content is limited to avoid duplicate images.
The ‘Featured Image Size’ list is populated by the available image sizes defined in the theme.
Post Navigation Technique allows you to select one of two navigation methods.
The Primary Navigation Extras typically display on the right side of your Primary Navigation menu.
- Today’s date displays the current date
- Search form displays a small search form utilizing the WordPress search functionality.
- Twitter link displays a link to your Twitter profile, as indicated in Twitter ID setting. Enter only your user name in this setting.
These options can be extended or limited by the child theme.
This field lets you define where the “Breadcrumbs” display. The Breadcrumb is the navigation tool that displays where a visitor is on the site at any given moment.
Comments and Trackbacks
This allows to decide whether comments and trackbacks (notifications when someone links to your page) are enabled for posts and pages.
Even If you enable comments or trackbacks here, it can be disabled on an individual post or page. If you disable here, they cannot be enabled on an individual post or page.
Bizznis itself doesn’t have color styles enabled, but child themes will probably come packed with a few. This option adds another CSS class selector to your child themes
body html tag. This class selector will then be used inside
style.css file for specific styling.
You can also define custom color options.
The Site Title/Logo option will use the Site Title and Site Description from your site’s settings in your header.
The Image logo option will use a logo image file in the header instead of the site’s title and description. This setting adds a
.header-image class to your site, allowing you to specify the header image in your child theme’s
style.css. By default, the logo can be saved as
logo.png and saved to the images folder of your child theme.

This is great when you want to show shop specific widgets only on shop pages.
