The Flex theme includes settings for the theme's Elements which can be accessed by going into your Theme Editor (customize) > Theme Settings > Elements.
Within the Elements settings, you can configure styles for small components throughout the theme. These settings will include options for the following elements:
- Drop-down menus
- Heading dividers
- Quantity box
There are a couple instances of built-in accordions in the Flex theme! These appear in the FAQ page template and Sidebar (if you have the toggle enabled). Within the Accordions settings, you can choose an icon style, which can either be set to plus and minus or carets.
If enabled, breadcrumbs can be seen throughout the theme in your product pages, collection pages and blog posts. Within the Breadcrumbs settings, you can choose the capitalization, separator and size.
The options for breadcrumbs capitalization are: none, lowercase and uppercase.
The options for the breadcrumbs separator are: arrow, bullet, caret, or slash.
The options for the breadcrumbs size are: small, regular and large.
These settings will apply to any drop-down menus in your header's navigation.
Within the drop-down style setting, you can select either vertical or horizontal. The vertical drop-down style stacks the drop-down items vertically within the drop-down menu. The horizontal drop-down menu style will line-up the drop-down items horizontally/side by side within the drop-down menu. Please note: the drop-down style does not apply to the vertical header.
The drop-down position setting will only apply to the vertical drop-down style. You can select either below parent link or below header. Below parent link position will have the drop-down menu display directly below the parent link. Below header position will have the drop-down menu display below the entire header.
The vertical spacing setting controls the amount of space between each drop-down menu item. You can choose from small, medium or large.
These settings will apply to all forms throughout the theme: contact form section, contact page, newsletter section, and popup (if newsletter form enabled). Within the forms settings, you can choose to use placeholders for the fields within all forms and select the button style for the submit button.
If you want the labels for the form fields to display within the field, you can enable the 'use placeholders' setting. This will move the text from above the field, to inside it.
With the 'button style' setting, you can choose between your primary, secondary and link button styles (which are configured under Theme Settings > Buttons).
The heading dividers settings will apply to headings in the following areas: featured collection section, blog posts section, instagram feed section, heading section, recommended products section, and internal page titles. You can select the color for the heading dividers by going into Theme Settings > Colors > Headings divider.
The divider animation setting lets you select an animation style for how the divider will 'load in' – choose from none, fade in, fade in down, fade in left, fade in right, slide in left, slide in right, and zoom in.
You can choose between short horizontal, long horizontal or vertical for the divider style.
You can decide how thick you'd like the divider to be with the divider thickness slider. Choose from 0 - 5 pixels. Choosing 0 will disable the divider.
The sidebar's toggle sidebar content setting will apply to all sidebars throughout the theme. Sidebars can be enabled in the following places: blog page, blog post, collection page, page.sidebar, and product page.
Toggle sidebar content
If you'd like all the content in your sidebars to be hidden by default and only displayed when toggled, you can enable the toggle sidebar content setting. Otherwise, all the sidebar content will be visible by default!
Enable styled tables
The enabled styled tables setting will apply to any tables added throughout the theme.
If you enable this setting, borders and padding will get added to your tables.
The quantity box settings will apply to all quantity boxes throughout the theme: product page (if enabled through Theme Settings > Product Form), cart page (if enabled) and mini cart/drawer cart types (if enabled).
Within the style setting, you can choose whether you'd like your quantity boxes to appear as box or stacked.
If you'd like your quantity boxes to have rounded corners, you can adjust the border radius slider from 0 - 25 pixels.
The tags style setting will apply to any instances of tags throughout the theme: product page (if enabled) and blog page/blog posts (if enabled). For the tags style, you can select either solid or outline.
