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. I’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 😉
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 🙂
