Not Sure About Wordpress Theme Settings

I am building a Wordpress theme for a small group of people. The concern that I have is if there will be any issues because of the differences in the users' settings. Say for instance, that one user, within his WP Reading settings has "Front page displays" set to latest posts, and another to a static page; as a theme designer, how would I ensure that there won't be any differences between how the theme works for different users?

I hope I've made it clear enough. If not, just let me know and I will elaborate.


You could instruct the clients not to touch that area or it will break your theme or add the following to the css:

.options-reading-php .form-table tr:first-child 
    display: none;

The above should hide the Front page displays fields in the Reading Settings page.
