Post Formats

Let your visitors see at a glance the type of post you’ve written using Post Formats. Elemin gives each post format a unique icon that appears beside each post’s title.

Custom Menus and Footer Widget Areas

Elemin comes with two Custom Menu areas (one in the header and the other in the footer). You can create and assign menus for these areas by going to Customize → Menus. The footer menu area will only show  top level navigation items.

In addition to the primary sidebar, Elemin features three widget areas in the footer. These widget areas will appear when you add widgets to them.
