Under the Customize page on your blog, you can make edits to appearance, sharing options, social media links, and more!

Blog Title & Description

Title - The title of your blog will appear in the header. Make sure to toggle "Show Title" to ON if you want your title to appear on your blog.

Description - Your description should be an explanation of your blog. It will appear in the header if a header image is ON, under the blog title. If you want the description to appear, make sure to toggle the "Show Description" option On. 

Header Image

Header Image Kono allows you to upload a header image, which will appear at the top of the page. Toggle "Show Header Image" to ON in order to make your header image appear on your blog. This Header Image will also pull from the one you chose in Settings, under "Edit Appearance" in case you already have one assigned.

If a header image is not uploaded, a sticky header bar will display instead.

Avatar & Logo

Avatar  - Kono allows you to upload an avatar or use your existing one, which will appear in the header and the menu sidebar. Toggle "Show Avatar in Header" and/or "Show Avatar in Sidebar" to ON in order for it to display. This Avatar will also pull from the one you chose in Settings, under "Edit Appearance" in case you already have one assigned.

Logo - Kono also allows you to upload a logo, which is separate from your avatar. If a Logo is uploaded, it will display in the header instead of your Avatar. It will also display in the header if the header image is set to OFF.
