Snippets – Tutorials that will help you get the most out of WP-Forge and WP-Starter


First off let me begin by saying this is something that has been suggested for a very long time and it is something that I have also been wanting to do for a while now. Iā€™m talking about adding snippets or I guess you could refer to them as tutorials, but I like the term snippets myself and so they shall be called.

Snippets – What are they?

Snippets will be various tutorials that will show you how to do different things with WP-Forge and WP-Starter. For example, I have been asked many times via email how one would go about overriding the customizer. It has even been asked in the WP-Forges’ Github issue section: Removing Customizer defaults. So to kick off this section of the site I will be writing a tutorial entitled “How to completely remove the Customizer settings of WP-Forge”. Look for it in a email near you.

Snippets for Foundation

I also plan on adding snippets concerning the use of Foundation. I have written a few posts about how to use different Foundation elements in your content, however I would like to maybe come up with some more in depth snippets thin this regard.

Snippets for WordPress

Everyone loves WordPress and I know that a lot of the Awesome Community uses WordPress for client work. I think that in itself is “AWESOME”. So I have decided that I will also include some handy dandy snippets that will allow you to do various things in WordPress with WP-Forge and WP-Starter. Things that are normally plugin territory but can be easily accomplished by adding a few snippets to functions.php. For example, I am working on a solution for a friend and user of WP-Forge that involves the header image. There is also another snippets suggested from another user that concerns putting header elements in a different order.

Let the Snippage Begin

I am really kind of excited about this. I plan on making this a weekly thing so if you have any ideas for snippets you would like to see, please post it in the comments and I will do my best to get it up and out. There is no such thing as a dumb snippet. Every little bit helps and the more info we can put out, the better the overall experience for the Awesome community.

Remember, if you use WP-Forge and WP-Starter and haven’t signed up for email updates, I suggest you do so you don’t miss out on the great info. I promise, I will do my best not to inundate your inbox with useless info šŸ˜‰

I hope these little snippets will be of use to everyone who uses WP-Forge and WP-Starter. If you have an idea, let me know. As always, enjoy šŸ™‚

  1. Snippets look really useful! No doubt Wp-Forge has the best support out of any of the Foundation based themes.. bravo!!!

    • Why thank you. I hope they turn out useful. The issue we are trying to resolve for your project, as I mentioned above, will be a topic of a tutorial šŸ˜‰

  2. Hey Thomas, I’d like to contribute with some of my own snippets. I’m using Foundation since v2 and WP-Forge has become my 1st choice Framework for WP-Theme development.

    The first thing I usually do (as my clients don’t need it) is remove the customizr CSS output. This helps me a lot as there is no CSS messing around with my custom stuff.

    This is my Snippet (put in child theme’s functions.php):

    add_action('after_setup_theme', 'remove_wpforge_features', 10);
    function remove_wpforge_features() {
    remove_action('wp_head', 'wpforge_customize_css', 100);
    remove_action('wp_head', 'wpforge_google_fonts', 100);
    • Hey Stefan,

      Glad WP-Forge is your first choice, that is totally awesome my friend – Thanks for the snippet. This is going to tie into the snippet that is coming out shortly (in about 30 min) that will show everyone how to remove the customizer completely.

      Again thanks for the help and thanks for choosing WP-Forge šŸ˜‰ Enjoy!
