Series Engine Tutorials

Adjusting Plugin Settings

Series Engine makes it easy to make dramatic changes to the plugin without ever having to touch a line of code.

Although many users will be happy to use Series Engine with the default settings right out of the box, our plugin's powerful Settings panel (found in "Settings > Series Engine") puts a wealth of powerful options at your fingertips.

Changing Fonts and Colors

One of the first changes that most users want to make is to adjust Series Engine's fonts and colors to perfectly match the look of their site. Thankfully, Series Engine makes this incredibly easy!

Navigate to "Settings > Series Engine > Fonts and Colors," and adjust the fonts and colors as you see fit. You can enter exact hex values for your color choices (if you have them from a branding guide), or use the built-in color picker for each option to find the right choice.

Save your changes at the bottom of the page, and all of your Series Engine pages will be updated with the new styles immediately.

Changing Labels

Every ministry uses different terminology, and Series Engine makes it easy to quickly adjust key terms and labels throughout the plugin.

Navigate to "Settings > Series Engine > Labels," and adjust the labels as needed.

Save your changes at the bottom of the page, and all of your Series Engine pages will be updated with the new labels immediately (this carries over to the admin pages as well).

Series Engine automatically creates custom permalink pages for each of your Messages, and you have complete control over everything from the permalink slug to the default content that is displayed.

Navigate to "Settings > Series Engine > Advanced," and scroll down until you reach "Customize Series Engine Permalinks." Change the options as you see fit, and then save your changes at the bottom of the page.

Anytime you adjust permalink settings, it's always a good idea to force WordPress to globally apply those changes. You can do this by navigating to "Settings > Permalinks" and clicking save at the bottom of the page (there's no need to adjust any settings unless you want to).

Adjusting Responsive Style Breakpoints (Advanced)

Series Engine is fully responsive and automatically adjusts for screens of all sizes, but if your theme uses skinny columns or unusual layouts, you may want to adjust Series Engine's condensed mobile view to kick in at a higher pixel width.

You can change these responsive breakpoints (without editing the stylesheet!) by visiting "Settings > Series Engine > Advanced" and scrolling until you see the "Customize Responsive Breakpoints" section. Adjust as needed, save your changes at the bottom of the page, and you should see your changes immediately reflected on your site.
