Using the Blog Page Advanced Settings with BoldGrid Crio | BoldGrid

In the BoldGrid Crio Customizer, the advanced settings will allow you to fine tune the display of your Blog Page. You have controls that allow you to change the margin, padding, border, border radius and box shadow. The following guide will explain the usage of those tools, and how to find them within the Crio Customizer.

  • In the Dashboard, navigate to AppearanceCustomize
  • In the Customizer menu, navigate to Design → Blog → Blog Page → Advanced

Margin

In BoldGrid Crio, margin properties are used to create space around elements, outside of any defined borders. Using the sliders, you can adjust top, right, bottom and left margin independently, or using the link control to ensure they have a consistent margin for all 4 directions.

Padding

Padding properties are used to generate space around an element’s content, within any defined borders. Negative values cannot be used with padding.

Border

With the Advanced Border controls, you can specify the style, width, color and design of an element’s border. A great use of this would be for underlining headings, or creating a border around a column.

Box Shadow

Using the box shadow controls in Crio, you can add shadows to your Blog Page. .

  • Use the sliders to control the following settings
  • Horizontal Position
  • Vertical Position
  • Blur Radius
  • Spread Radius
  • Use the toggle Outset/Inset to choose if the shadow is internal or external
  • Use the color picker to select the shadow color

Border Radius

The Border Radius controls the roundness of your element’s corners. A higher border radius value creates more rounded corners. Use the sliders to adjust the roundness of the four corners

Congratulations! You now know how to use the Advanced Settings within the Blog Page Design Controls. You can use the Undo Changes option to remove current changes or Delete Saved Settings to reset to the default options. The responsive device tools allow you to use various padding on different screen sizes.
