Monstroid Theme Documentation


Here are described some technical tricks, which allow you to use framework features in better ways.

Icon Trics

Editing font icons

Font icons can be added using Shortcode interface (Insert shortcode). Shortcodes that provide the font icon option include an Icon picker element. Using this option you can preview and select the required icon.

Font icon script is added to the child-theme, that is why their version is not getting updated. The only exception is the iconic FontAwesome – it can be updated along with the Cherry Shortcodes plugin.

You can also add some external icons from Flaticon packages following the steps below:

  1. download font source code with the icons and upload them to the "wp-content/themes/themeXXXXX/assets/fonts" folder on your server.

  2. add the following code to the "wp-content/themes/themeXXXXX/functions.php" file:

    add_filter( ‘cherry_custom_font_icons’, ‘themeXXXXX_custom_font_icons’ );
    function themeXXXXX_custom_font_icons($icons) {
    		$icons[‘themeXXXXX_material_icon’] = get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . ‘/assets/fonts/';
    		return $icons;

Appearance tricks

Title with caption

In order to display the title and page text description in the following way, you need to perform the following steps:

  1. You need to enable Breadcrumbs option in Cherry Options:

  2. Each page includes the block called Additional page options , where you can see several view types:

    • Inherit
    • Don’t display
    • Show both - breadcrumbs and title
    • Show only page title
    • Show only breadcrumbs

    Choose to Show both - breadcrumbs and title

  3. Background image can be set in Page Settings - Featured image.

  4. In order to display text description right under the title, click the Screen Options, button in the top right corner and check the Excerpt option. Fill in the Excerpt field.
