Maelstrom: Recreating the Demo - Overrides

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Maelstrom Theme for WordPress

Theme Override Settings

One of the most important central features of any Gantry theme is the ability to be set up within the Theme Settings menu. These settings can be adjusted by navigating to Administration -> Maelstrom Theme. To replicate the demo, the main changes being made will happen within the Style, Gizmos, Layouts, and Advanced tabs.

This table will break down the various settings you may need to adjust in order to recreate the demo. Most of the settings under Style are adjusted automatically with the selection of a theme preset. You can set presets using the Presets button located next to the Save option at the top of the Theme Settings page.

Once you have selected a Preset, these options can be further adjusted to match the demo. Keep in mind that the override indicated here relates to the theme override in this menu. More information about how overrides work can be found in our Gantry documentation.
