04. Theme Options
The theme uses the WordPress Customizer feature for it's global/theme options. Customizer is a native WordPress feature which was added in WordPress back in 2012, so if you've ever used WordPress you won't have any problems.
Note: Only functionality related options are in the Customizer. For styling options use MeridianStyler, more on that further down the documentation.
You can access the customizer at WP Admin → Appearance → Customize. In there you will see these sections:
