Great news for theme developers!!
Super Blog Pack uses template functionality. That means you can integrate this plugin into your theme and override it’s plugin to customize anything you want! See “How can I customize it” under the FAQ section for more info.
More features are coming soon!
Why I see like, views, share, rating only on single post, not archive or search?
Some themes dont apply WordPress’s default content filter on archive or search pages. That doesn’t allow any plugin to detect where the post is being shown. So the plugin can’t hook with the content and can’t add elements there. But on the single page, it’s always available to hook and add buttons, links and ratings.
How can I customize it?
- Copy the
templatesfolder to the theme you are using.
- Rename the folder you copied to your theme to
- Customize each files that you want.
- Not required but recommended that you only keep the files that you need to customize in your theme folder. So other files gets loaded from the plugin itself.
It’s recommended that you create a child theme and use that. Because every time you update your theme, you’ll lose your custom edits.
