PressForward-TurnKey-Theme - 2.1

The PressForward-TurnKey-Theme is designed to work alongside the PressForward plugin and aid in the creation of a PressForward publication. The theme features an optional homepage template with numerous blocks that allow users to feature a variety of text heavy content based on category. The homepage blocks can be turned on and off and the content can be manipulated to fit a variety of different publication styles. The slider pulls in the featured image from a post and the PressForward author (if the PressForward plugin is active). On individual pages, users can customize the display of the author, comments, and, optionally, display PressForward nomination counts on individual posts. While this theme is designed to compliment the workflow of a PressForward publication it is optimized for use with any site. The theme is designed using the JointsWP, Foundation, Font Awesome, and Kirki libraries and is responsive and accessibility ready.

The coding standards are not required to pass the review, but they can be
helpful when developing your theme.

The code reference library is very useful when you want to know more about WordPress functions, classes, hooks and methods.
It can help you determine if a function needs to be escaped or not, or if a function you have planned to write is already available.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
