This article was last updated on the December 21, 2016.

In the following article, we’ll explore the stack specific options of Integrity, without further ado, let’s get started.

As explained in the customizer introduction here open up the WordPress Customizer to start, if you don’t already have integrity selected, you’ll need to change your stack to continue following this article.

To set your stack to Integrity in the WordPress customizer, click on “Stack”:

Stack Selection

Then choose “Integrity” in the stack selection.

Select Integrity Stack

Once you’ve selected the Integrity stack, click on the back button, which should take you to the main section of the Customizer with all options

Go Back

Now you’re back at the main section of the customizer, you can proceed to edit the integrity stack as needed, so go ahead and click on “Integrity” which should be directly under the “stack option”.

Exploring Integrity

Integrity comes with a variety of options, which we’ll explore below, we’ll check out each option and provide screenshots along the way.

Design

There are two provided design options for integrity, one being the “light” version and the other being a “dark version”.

Light and Dark

The “Light version” on our test site, looks like this:

Light

While, if we switch to the dark design option in the WordPress Customizer, our site looks like this:

Dark

As you can see, in just one click we’ve completely changed the look of the site, if you want to save the changes at all, just click on “save and publish” at the top.

Topbar Transparency

Topbar transparency, is quite a self explanatory options and simply sets if the Topbar is transparent or not.

Topbar Transparency

Navbar Transparency

Navbar transparency is also quite self explanatory, it simply sets if the navbar is full transparent or not with the options either “on or off”.

Navbar Transparency

If we set Navbar transparency to “On”, our site looks like this:

Navbar transparent

Notice now how the Navbar is fully transparent, so now we have our background color showing, instead of the navbar color, but if we change it again and set Navbar transparency to “Off”, our site now looks like this:

Transprency off

Footer Transparency

Footer transparency is very similar to both Navbar transparency and Topbar transparency, expect of course, it’s for the footer instead. This options again comes with a simple “on or off” toggle.

Footer transparency

If we set the Footer transparency to on, our site looks like this:

Transparent Footer

While if we set Footer transparency to Off our site will look this:

No transparency footer

Notice how the footer area now is solid white, rather than being transparent which was showing through our background color when footer transparency was set to on.

Blog Header

Enabling the blog header will turn on the area above your posts on the index page that contains your title and subtitle. Disabling it will result in more content being visible above the fold, let’s take a look at how turning on and off this option effects our site.

Blog header options

If we set blog header to on our site looks like this:

Blog Header on

Now if we set our blog header to Off, you’ll notice that there’s now a lot more content visible above the fold, all through using one simple option, another great choice for customizing your site.

Blog Header Off

Portfolio

The last option you’ll see is for the portfolio options:

Portfolio Sort Options

The first option is for the sort portfolio text. Which is the text that shows on the portfolio sort button.

The last option is for Portfolio index sharing. Enabling portfolio index sharing will turn on social sharing links for each post on the portfolio index page.

Congrats! You should now have a better understanding of the various Integrity specific options.
