A search box is positioned in the header by default. If you prefer the search box to appear in the sidebar or if you do not want to implement a search at all, this option can be disabled.

Content

Excerpt or all content

Decide how the posts on your home page and archive sites should look like. You can choose between the excerpt or showing the whole post.

Sidebar Layout

The sidebar is used to display any number of widgets. There are five new sidebar layouts available, with one of them hiding the sidebar. You can either use a narrow or a wide sidebar and decide whether it is positioned on the left or right side.

Size of post thumbnails

Two dimensions for post images are available in AlbinoMouse v2.

The dimensions of the option «Content Post Image» correspond to the thumbnail size defined in the media settings. When selecting this option, the content wraps around the post image.

The dimensions of the option «Banner Post Image» are 750px x 250px. When selecting this option, images that are uploaded in the future, will be created with these dimensions in addition to the media sizes defined in the settings. Existing images must be regenerated. This can be done with the Regenerate Thumbnails plug-in.

Breadcrumbs navigation

Besides the extra templates, you might add a breadcrumbs navigation on the standard page template.

Footer

Footer Layout

The footer provides plenty of space for widgets. This option can be used to select the number of widget columns to be displayed. You can choose between one and four columns.

Custom Copyright Text

Using the blog title in the settings, AlbinoMouse automatically inserts a copyright note. Using this option, you can position your custom copyright text.
