Mirrorby Pro Theme Design

Mirror is a blog-focused theme showcasing large featured images and clear typography. A prominent slider in the header helps your top content shine. Mirror is ideal for businesses that want to keep their audience up-to-date with their latest news. For bloggers, Mirror displays eye-catching images that encourage visitors to keep returning.

Custom Header

Mirror makes use of Custom Headers. The header image should be sized 1500 wide by 350 tall. The height can be changed to suit your design.

Custom Menus

Mirror has one custom menu area. If there is no custom menu configured, the menu will display a list of your site’s pages. To find out more about how to set up your menus, see the Custom Menu documentation.

Featured Images

Featured Content

Mirror uses Featured Content. This involves choosing a post tag to signify which posts are special. When this tag is used, the posts are displayed at the top of the home page — separate from the regular blog posts.

To set up Featured Content:

  1. Go to Appearance → Customize → Featured Content.
  2. Enter a tag name for the featured posts — make sure it’s unique and isn’t used anywhere else.
  3. Edit the posts that you want to display in the featured content space and give them the featured tag you have just selected.
