Customify – A Theme Customizer Booster


With Customify, developers can easily create advanced theme-specific options inside the WordPress Customizer. Using those options, a user can make presentational changes without having to know or edit the theme code.

Types of Fields

  • Color. A color picker used to control any text or background color of an element.

  • Font. A real font selector which includes a flexible library of fonts(Fonto, google fonts or added via fliter) and allows you to customize, with live preview, properties like font-weight, size, letter spacing, text align, text decoration etc.

  • Typography. (Deprecated) A series of typographic options that allow you to access the massive Google Fonts library and make them available inside your theme customizer.

  • CSS Editor. A powerful Live CSS Editor directly into your customizer! Useful for better control over the appearance of your theme without the need to create a child theme or worry about theme updates overwriting your customizations.

  • Text Field. A simple text field that allows you to customize elements like Site Title or Footer Credits.

  • Select Dropdown. A drop-down menu selector to be used when you have to choose from multiple options.

  • Range. The html5 range element can be used to select number values.

  • Preset. A field which allows you to change a group of Customify fields.

  • **And more others this is the full list

Is there a way to reset Customify to defaults?

Reset buttons are available for all the options or for individual sections or panels.
They are disabled by default to avoid useless/accidental resets.
To enable them simply go to Dashboard -> Settings -> Customify and check “Enable Reset Buttons”


Excellent Support! Excellent Theme Customizer!

Just wanted to say it’s my first time requesting support for a WP plugin and the experience has been wonderful. I would like to thank Andrei for the excellent customer service – super fast response with an actual solution that fixed everything. Thanks again Andrei! 🙂
