Post Types

This section of Theme Options allows to manage appearance of Blog, Portfolio and Gallery single posts, if “The7 Elements” plugin is enabled.

Please note that Elementor will overwrite most of settings (except options from the General tab), when using the Theme Builder to create single post layouts. In such case, you need to modify the single layouts from Templates -> Theme builder -> Single and edit them using Elementor.

Elementor Single & Archive Builder tutorial is available here.

The7-specific features like Fancy date and Fancy category on featured images will not work when you insert Elementor featured image in the single post layout.

General

This tab allows to define style for pagination and category filters (see fig. 1): decoration, line size, font settings, padding and margins, as well gap below category filter and above pagination.
