Weaver Sub Theme

This Index links the Official Weaver II WordPress Theme’s Admin Options, with Pages of this Unofficial User Guide.  This Guide lets you see inside the Weaver II Theme Admin Panel so you can have a look around the Weaver Options before you commit to using it on your own website.

Or, as a quick reference if you already use Weaver and need to know where a particular Option is located and how it is used.

Weaver II is famous for its many options, its flexibility and its easy-to-drive platform.  These advantages make Weaver II a perfect choice for Beginners and experts alike.  And no, they are not paying me to say nice things about them.

You don’t need to know any CSS or HTML to set up a website using the Weaver II Theme.  You don’t even have to have any design skills.  Every option is customized using Check Boxes and Color Pickers. You only need to be able to wield your mouse.

Weaver User Guide Index of Main Options: 

This User-Guide covers: only covers the options available in the free Main Options section of the Weaver Admin.  Customizing the Main Options will get your website up and running. The other options can be looked at later, once you get to know Weaver better and want to fine tune it.

This Guide does not cover: Weaver II Pro Version Options, or any Advanced Option Settings requiring CSS or HTML.  Advanced Options are included in the free version of Weaver II, but are not covered in this Guide.

It does not cover: Other sections of the Free Weaver Admin Panel that are not included in the Main Options section of the Weaver Admin Panel. These other Options are:

  • Mobile
  • Advanced Options
  • Admin Options
