5. Mr Parker Theme: Choosing Theme Settings

In this article, we will go through the process of choosing theTheme Settings which relate to the site globally, like fonts, colors, etc. 

What are  Theme  Settings?

Theme settings are global configuration options for your theme that affect the website across all pages, like Colors, Fonts, etc. General settings also hold options for non-specific pages or content sections. The available settings in the theme settings tab will stay the same no matter what site page your viewing in the theme editor.
