Predefined Weaver II Sub-Themes  ← You can click the ?'s found throughout Weaver II admin pages for context specific help.

Welcome to Weaver II

Weaver II gives you extreme control of your WordPress blog appearance using the different admin tabs here. This tab lets you get a quick start by picking one of the many predefined sub-themes. Once you've picked a starter theme, use the Main Options and Advanced Options tabs to tweak the theme to be whatever you like. After you have a theme you're happy with, you can save it from the Save/Restore tab. The Help tab has much more useful information.

Get started by trying one of the predefined sub-themes!

  Select a sub-theme:   Select a predefined sub-theme from the list. Current theme: Antique Ivory

  Note: Selecting a new theme will change only theme related settings. Most Advanced Options will be retained. You can use the Save/Restore tab to save a copy of all your current settings first.

Main Area BG:  Background for main page #main div - wraps container, content and sidebars (uses wrapper bg if not set).
Container Area BG:  Background for #container div - wraps content and sidebars (Uses wrapper bg if not set.).
Rounded Corners:  Check to use rounded corners for main area, menu bars, widgetareas, header and footer
Rounded Corners (Content):  Check to use rounded corners for content area (page and post content)

Weaver II Pro - Font Control

 | OVERALL FONTS | MENU FONTS | TITLES & HEADINGS | OTHER FONTS | CUSTOM FONT RULES | Font Control Help |

The Weaver II Pro Font Control panel gives you fine tuned control over the fonts various elements of your site will use. You can use a set of standard Web fonts, or for total flexibility, you can use any of the free Google Web Fonts. Once you get the hang of using this interface, it is quite easy to specify fonts. However, there is a small learning curve, and you really should read the complete instructions in the Weaver II Help document!

For best results, please follow Steps 1, 2, 3, and 4 for each font you want to use. Read the instructions for each step carefully.


Weaver II Font Style Generator     Font Control Help

Step 1. Specify Font Family and Attributes

You may specify a standard Web font by using the "Specify Standard Font Family" pull-down on the left below, or you may use any Google font by first selecting "Google Web Font" on the left, then filling in 3 and 4 in the Google box on the right. You can use the Font-Weight, Font Style, etc., for either a standard or a Google Font. Then follow Steps 2, 3, and 4 for either standard or Google fonts. You can repeat this process (Steps 1 to 4) to specify different fonts for different elements.

Specify Standard Font Family
    -OR- 

Font-Weight:
Font Style:   
Font Variant:
Font Size:    
Font Size value:
 Specify Google Web Font Family
  1. Select "Google Web Font" from "Specify Standard Font Family" pull-down list on the left.
  2. Go to Google Web Fonts site to select a font. Open the font's Quick-use page.
  3. Paste Quick-use #3 <link> code here:
  4. Paste Quick-use #4 CSS code here:   
  5. Click theGenerate Font CSS Definition button,
    then click thePaste current Google #3 and #4 to list of Available Google fonts and Save Settings
    if you plan to use this Google Web Font on your site.

Step 2.     ← Click this button to generate a CSS definition you can paste into the different font areas below.


Paste above CSS code into style boxes in the Weaver II Font Options section below. No need to Copy, just click the Paste CSS button. Getting just "{}"? Re-read the Step 1 directions!

The above Font Style Generator settings will be saved when you Save Settings, but they generally are used on a one-shot basis.
Weaver II Font Options

Step 3. Define font definition load path for Google Fonts you use

If you are using any Google Fonts, you MUST add the definitions you pasted into #3 and #4 above to the "Available Google Fonts" box below so that your site will be able to load the Google Fonts. If you are just using standard web font families, then you can skip this step.

  Important! You still must click the "Save Settings" button to save the Google Font definitions in the Available Google Fonts setting!

Available Google Fonts:
List of Google fonts that will be available for use on your site. You can copy/paste the "font-family: ..." CSS code into any of the sections below if you need to later.

Step 4. Paste Font CSS Defintions into Boxes of items you want to specify

You can now use the "Paste CSS" buttons next to specific text items to use the currently defined font in the "Step 2" Font CSS Definition. You need to change that definition for each different font you use. The same applies to "Step 3" if your are using Google Fonts.

Advanced Options




This tab allows you to define custom code and style rules to the <HEAD> Section of every page on your site.

PLEASE NOTE: Only minimal validation is made on the field values, so be careful not to use invalid code. Invalid code is usually harmless, but it can make your site display incorrectly. If your site looks broken after make changes here, please double check that what you entered uses valid HTML or CSS rules.



This input area allows you to enter custom HTML and JavaScript code to your site. Code entered into this box is included right before the </HEAD> HTML tag on each page of your site. This often will include JavaScript code supplied by other sites (such as Google Analytics) that is required to use some feature of the outside site. Shortcodes are not supported in this option. Note: while you can add CSS bracketed in a <style> section here, the preferred way is to add CSS Rules using the "Custom CSS Rules" option below.

For even greater control of how your site looks, you can add code the the <HEAD> section on a per page basis using the per page options from the page editor.



Force jQuery library script to load. If you use any jQuery scripts, checking this will force the standard WordPress jQuery version to be loaded. (♦)




This section allows you to add new CSS Rules to your theme to enhance or override the styling set using Weaver's Main Options. For example, Weaver's documentation includes many CSS Snippets that allow you to find tune the look of your site. You simply add whatever CSS Rules you need into the box below. Include the complete rule. You do not need to add <style> HTML tags to bracket your rules.

Rules you add here will be the last CSS Rules included by Weaver, and thus override all other Weaver generated CSS rules. It is possible that other plugins might generate CSS that comes after these rules.


The Advanced Options→HTML Insertion tab allows you to insert custom HTML code in many places on your site. These fields allow you to add HTML code, special CSS rules, or even JavaScripts. You will need at least a bit of knowledge of HTML coding to use these fields most effectively.

The values you put here are saved in the WordPress database, and will survive theme upgrades and other changes.

PLEASE NOTE: Only minimal validation is made on the field values, so be careful not to use invalid code. Invalid code is usually harmless, but it can make your site display incorrectly. If your site looks broken after make changes here, please double check that what you entered uses valid HTML or CSS rules.





This HTML code will be inserted into the #branding div header area right above where the standard site header image goes. You can use it for logos, better site name text - whatever. When used in combination with hiding the site title, header image, and the menu, you can design a completely custom header. If you hide the title, image, and header, no other code is generated in the #branding div, so this code can be a complete header replacement. You can also use WP shortcodes to embed plugins, including rotating image slideshows such as Meteor Slides. And there is automatic support for the Dynamic Headers plugin which allows you create highly dynamic headers from its control panel - just install and it will work without any other code edits.

Weaver II includes several page templates - which is the WordPress tool for giving different look and functionality do individual static pages. Many of the properties of any given page, independent of the page template, can be set using the "Weaver II Options For This Page" box on the regular WordPress Page Editor admin page.

One of the most requested features included in the Per Page box is the ability to set the sidebar layout for each page. If this is not set, the page will use the global options for the page type. The other popular option includes the ability to replace any of the sidebar widget areas, as well as the ability to add an additional top widget area. To use a new widget area you must first tell Weaver II to create a new one. These Per Page Widget Areas are defined on the Main Options:Widget Areas tab.

Overview of Page Templates

  • The 2 Col Content template splits content into two columns. You manually set the column split using the standard WP '<--more-->' convention. (Note - since WordPress only used the '<--more-->' to show the "Continue reading..." for posts, it can serve this purpose for this template on pages. Columns will split first horizontally, then vertically (you can have more than one <--more--> tag).
  • The Blank page template will wrap the content of an associated page with an HTML div with class .content-blank which you can add CSS rules to style using the standard Weaver II options. The standard page <article> wrapping is not used. The page title is not displayed. Use Per Page Options on Page edit menu to control Menu, Site Title, and Header Image visibility.
  • Page with Posts serves as an alternative way to display posts. After you select the Page with Posts template, a new set of options will be added to the Per Page menu. There is additional help in the help documentation.
  • The Raw template allows total custom HTML styling with no predefined div's. It useful for Pop Up pages.
  • The Sitemap provides a page with a basic sitemap.
  • The iframe template is designed for full width display of html iframes. You can control sidebars and titles using standard Per Page options.
  • The HTML Source template will display the page content as syntax-highlighted HTML or PHP code. It is useful for showing source code. Any text (e.g., an explanation) defined in per page Custom Field called 'html_source_intro' will be displayed before the content source code.

When this site is viewed on an Apple iOS device such as an iPhone or iPad, Apple iOS recognizes a special icon that can be displayed on the device's home screen. The recommend size for this icon is a .png file 57x57 px for basic display, or 114x114 px for enhanced display. ♦

Because of the advanced Mobile View capabilities provided by Weaver II, many existing WordPress Caching plugins will not work correctly with Weaver II. We have found that the Quick Cache and W3 Total Cache plugins do work when properly configured. Please see the Weaver II help file for instructions on using compatible cache plugin →.


The following options are related to SEO - Search Engine Optimization. Please note that Weaver II has been designed to follow the latest SEO guidelines. Each non-home page will use the recommended "Page Title | Site Title" format, and the site is formatted using the appropriate HTML5 tags for optimal SEO performance. Unless you have special needs, you probably don't need an SEO plugin. But if you do use an SEO plugin, be sure to check the "Use SEO plugin instead" option below to allow it to properly override Weaver II's own SEO features.

Every site should have at least "description" and "keywords" meta tags for basic SEO support. Please edit these tags to provide more information about your site, which is inserted into the <HEAD> section of your site.

You will want to check this box if you are using one of the WordPress SEO plugins. If you check this box, then this meta information will not be added to your site, and a standard WP <title> compatible with SEO plugins will be used. ♦

Site Options

These options are available to fine tune various aspects of your site. Technically, these features are not part of the theme styling, but cover other aspects of site functionality.



You can add a FavIcon to your site with this option. The preferred FavIcon is in the .ico format which has the most universal browser compatibility. However, .png, .gif, and .jpg will work for most modern browsers. The standard sizes are 16x16, 32x32, or 48x48 px. You can alternatively load a favicon.ico file to the root directory of your site. ♦

FavIcon URL:  ←    Full path to FavIcon



Facebook and other sites will display a possibly arbitrarily chosen thumbnail for your site when it is used in a link on those sites. If you specify an image to use here, then that image, plus other OpenGraph site information for Facebook, will be added to your site's <head> using the proper <meta> tags. We recommend you do this as it gives you control, and helps when someone links to your site on Facebook. (Note: some SEO plugins will perform this same function, so you might want to leave this blank and use the SEO features instead.) The image must be at least 50x50 px, but probably not over 200x200 px, and less than 20K bytes in size. After saving settings, enter this site's URL on this page to have Facebook update the information it saves for your site.

WordPress allows you to specify what page is used for your home page - either the standard WordPress blog, or a static page (which can be a Weaver "Page with Posts" page). How to set the Front page displays options is not totally obvious - please see the Weaver Help topic for a more complete explanation.

You can set the front page on the Dashboard Settings→Reading panel: Set Front Page Displays


For the best look, your site should support Avatars - a small image associated with a contributors e-mail address. Gravatar.com is probably the most popular Avatar support, and is closely associated with WordPress. You should set up a Gravatar for the main authors of your blog. For contributors without any avatar, you can select an automatically generated avatar from several options found on the Settings→Discussion panel.
