Add a box to header in Matala theme

    Hello, We want to make minor changes to our theme “Matala”. We want to make minor fonts changes, add a box to the header, and an additional menu bar. Is this something that can be done if we upgrade?

    The blog I need help with is



    We want to make minor fonts changes

    By “minor” are you referring to changing font families, colors and size in text in posts or pages?
    If so you can do that either post by post or page by page by coding into the HTML editor without a custom design upgrade and using Typekit fonts.

    If what you want is to change all font families, colors and sizes throughout the whole blog (blog title, tagline, post titles, page titles, categories and tags, widget headings, comments, and links etc.) by purchasing an annually renewable Custom Design upgrade and using Typekit Fonts with Staff support then see here >

    add a box to the header

    What do you mean by “box” and what is it for?


    You can add a second menu to a sidebar using the custom menu widget. Adding a second menu bar though would be a lot of work as a custom menu widget would have t be used and then completely reworked and restyled using CSS, and it would not support dropdowns since menu widgets do not have that functionality.



    Maybe I am asking the question a little to vaguely. I am interested in having a couple of random pictures that appear on my homepage right under the Title Bar. I am wondering if, by purchasing the CSS upgrade, will I be able to add this bar and upload photos (would look similiar to the random photos that appear on a facebook profile page)? Does this theme already allow for that and I just can’t figure out how to do it?


    You could probably put on image into the header element and then one image into site-title element and then adjust the site-title text to where it did not interfere, but there is no way to have a random or automatically changing header in Matala. With Twenty Ten or Twenty Eleven, they have a random header feature, but it is for a single image (and will include the standard images in addition to the header images you upload).

    With Matala, you would have to edit the CSS each time you wanted to change one of the images in the header area. Again, a completely manual operation.
