Traveler supports thumbnail images on blog posts. These are known as featured images. To use featured images, what you need to do is edit the post you want to add the featured image to – and then find the box labelled ‘Featured Image’. Click the link titled ‘Set featured image’ and then either select the image or upload a new one using the options provided. Once selected press ‘Set featured image’, then update your post and you’re done. It sounds more long winded than it is – I promise 🙂
Traveler has 2 menus available. By default the top menu displays your websites pages and the lower menu displays your websites categories.
You can customise the top menu using the WordPress custom menu functionality. To find out more about how to change the menus you can read the wordpress.com custom menu documentation.
The lower menu is always set to display categories and will display the top 12 categories, sorted by the number of posts in each category.
The background image at the top of every page is controlled with the WordPress custom header functionality. Traveller requires quite a large image since it is shown very big on the homepage of the site.
Because of the way the site is designed it’s likely that some of the header image will be hidden. As such you should ensure important elements like logos are in the middle of the header image. This will make sure they have the greatest chance of being displayed properly.
Traveller features a single sidebar – located in the footer. There’s information on the administration of sidebars available here.
