This article will show you how to customize the different sections of your Welcome Bar box. After adding the Welcome Bar box you will find new options added to your ‘Skin Content’ page.

Customizing the Welcome Bar Box

To customize your Welcome Bar box, visit your ‘Skin Content’ page and click the link for the Welcome Bar box from the list at the bottom. You will then see a page with the options for customizing your Welcome Bar.

If you have the Developer Tools box (from DIYThemes) installed, you will also be able to customize your box options from within the Skin Editor. I recommend using this because it makes customizing boxes much easier.

Main Welcome Bar Box Options

The first set of options for your Welcome Bar Box are for your custom text, URL and behavior of the box. These can be seen in the image below:

Simply follow the steps below to customize your box
