Featured Images

Want to highlight your visual content? Consider adding a Featured Image to your posts when using the Standard post format. Featured Images appear above the title on the blog index and archive pages. For an optimal result, provide an image at least 960px wide and 500px high.

Custom menus

Primary Menu

Veeva allows you to have a custom menu in its header, which you can set up in Customize → Menus. Don’t forget to select your new menu as the “Primary Menu”; if that option isn’t selected, Veeva will not display your menu.

Social Menu

Veeva also allows you to display icons for your social media profiles, like Twitter and Facebook.

To automatically apply icons to your links, simply create a new custom menu. Next, add each of your social links to this menu. Each menu item should be added as a custom link.

Once your menu is created and your social links are added, select “Social Menu” in the Menu Settings; if the option isn’t selected, Veeva will not display the menu in its footer.

Custom Header Image and Background

Veeva lets you choose a custom header image. Simply go to Customize → Header Image and set your new header. The image will be cropped for small screens (not scaled down) to fit the available area fixed for height and width. This means that abstract and decorative header images work best with this theme.

You can easily apply a background color or image by going to Customize → Colors & Backgrounds.
