When changing styles we may not want to give the administrator to many options as it is only the style that can really be changed and not the layout, there is no point in loading a stylesheet for a three column layout if the theme has only one column.
It has been two weeks since the Beta 1 was released for testing, after feedback we have made a number of changes.
The main topics in this section are still relevant but with a few changes, the major changes are the tabbed admin bar and the way we will create the content, using custom posts, if you have beta 1 then you must de-activate the old plugin first.
We were searching for code to create a tabbed admin page for our WordPress to facebook Plugin, and we found a very nice website with the code we needed, the website is recommended as one to visit.
It took a while to get a handle on the code as there was no downloadable example, so we have combined two of the One Design posts from the website to create a working example.
The fifth in this series of tutorials is adding a the social media panels to the theme, we created our social media panels with two different sizes for vertical and horizontal bars.
If we follow the steps in this tutorial we will be able to add two social media panels to our WordPress theme, have looked at the clickable icons, added a fixed theme panel that does not move when we scroll, and a top of page call.
We will need to do the following steps, create the template parts, styles and add the supporting files to our theme, and populate the website social media icons from the options page we created in the earlier tutorial.
The fourth in this series of tutorials is adding a header panel to the theme, we created our header panel with two different areas for a logo and content information.
If we follow the steps in this tutorial we will be able to add a header panel section to our WordPress theme, have looked at the clickable logo, and an information panel with four lines.
We will need to do the following steps, create the template parts, styles and add the supporting files to our theme, install the logo image, and populate the website information from the options page we created in the last tutorial.
The third in this series of tutorials is adding an options page to the admin section of WordPress, we created our options page from two different tutorials we found online.
If we follow the steps in this tutorial we will be able to add an options section in the admin menu column of WordPress, have looked at the options array, and how to add the page to our theme.
We will need to do the following steps, add the options page and supporting files to out theme, look at the options for part four and adding the social icons folder so we can create different icon bar style for our theme, which will do in part five of the tutorials.
