Custom Header

Owari takes advantage of the Custom Header feature. The recommended image dimensions are 1200 pixels wide by 400 pixels high.

Featured Images

Owari will display Featured Images for posts on your blog index page, archive pages, and search results. On Owari, two image sizes — a “standard” size (336 pixels wide, unlimited height) and a “large” size (684 pixels wide, unlimited height) — are used prominently.

The “large” size, which is double the width of the “standard” size, is reserved for sticky posts.

Sticky Posts

In addition to the usual behavior of sticky posts displaying before other posts, they also have a strikingly different appearance compared to their non-sticky counterparts.

The appearance of sticky posts on the blog index page differ from normal posts in these ways:

  • Double the width of non-sticky posts.
  • A larger font for the post heading, date published, and author.
  • A relevant icon preceding the post date and author name.
  • Display a post excerpt

The Post Visibility support page explains how to set a Sticky post.


Owari has one area to display widgets, in the sidebar.

Call to Action Widget

A Call to Action widget can be seen at the top of our demo site’s widget area. You can set one up yourself using some basic HTML.


This screenshot shows a text widget with the following HTML code:

<p><img src="https://owaridemo.files.wordpress.com/2016/02/leland-circle.png" alt="Profile Picture" class="aligncenter profile-picture"></p>

<p style="text-align:center;">Owari is a photo-focused theme designed to document the places you travel and the food you eat.</p>

<p style="text-align:center;"><a href="https://theme.wordpress.com/themes/owari/" class="button">Buy This Theme</a></p>

Some notes:

  • The profile-picture class, as seen on the image restricts the image width to a maximum of 216 pixels. It does not round the image.
  • The button class, as seen on the link, can be used anywhere you would like Owari‘s button styles to be applied.
  • In the text widget options, don’t select the option to automatically apply paragraphs, since the paragraphs are already coded in the HTML.

Social Menu

Owari features a Social Links Menu in the header.

It supports the following social networks:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest
  • Google+
  • Dribbble
