E. OTHER

All widgets have additional functionality: add custom class.

documentation

Classes are visible here in the code:

documentation

See how aspects of the Bootstrap grid system work across multiple devices with a handy table.

 Extra small devices Phones (<768px)Small devices Tablets (?768px)Medium devices Desktops (?992px)Large devices Desktops (?1200px)
Grid behaviorHorizontal at all timesCollapsed to start, horizontal above breakpoints
Class prefix .col-xs- .col-sm- .col-md- .col-lg-
# of columns12
Column widthAuto~62px~81px~97px
Gutter width30px (15px on each side of a column)
NestableYes
OffsetsYes
Column orderingYes

Example:

Don't want your columns to simply stack in smaller devices? Use the extra small and medium device grid classes by adding .col-xs-* .col-md-* to your columns. See the example below for a better idea of how it all works.

documentation

<!-- Stack the columns on mobile by making one full-width and the other half-width -->
<div class="row">
  <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-8">.col-xs-12 .col-md-8</div>
  <div class="col-xs-6 col-md-4">.col-xs-6 .col-md-4</div>
</div>

<!-- Columns start at 50% wide on mobile and bump up to 33.3% wide on desktop -->
<div class="row">
  <div class="col-xs-6 col-md-4">.col-xs-6 .col-md-4</div>
  <div class="col-xs-6 col-md-4">.col-xs-6 .col-md-4</div>
  <div class="col-xs-6 col-md-4">.col-xs-6 .col-md-4</div>
</div>

<!-- Columns are always 50% wide, on mobile and desktop -->
<div class="row">
  <div class="col-xs-6">.col-xs-6</div>
  <div class="col-xs-6">.col-xs-6</div>
</div>

See helpful guide:
How to use bootstrap grid system with WordPress theme?

For faster mobile-friendly development, use these utility classes for showing and hiding content by device via media query. Also included are utility classes for toggling content when printed.

Try to use these on a limited basis and avoid creating entirely different versions of the same site. Instead, use them to complement each device's presentation.

Available classes

Use a single or combination of the available classes for toggling content across viewport breakpoints.

 Extra small devices Phones (<768px)Small devices Tablets (?768px)Medium devices Desktops (?992px)Large devices Desktops (?1200px)
.visible-xs-*Visible
.visible-sm-*Visible
.visible-md-*Visible
.visible-lg-*Visible
.hidden-xsVisibleVisibleVisible
.hidden-smVisibleVisibleVisible
.hidden-mdVisibleVisibleVisible
.hidden-lgVisibleVisibleVisible

The .visible-*-* classes for each breakpoint come in three variations, one for each CSS display property value listed below.

Group of classesCSS display
.visible-*-block display: block;
.visible-*-inline display: inline;
.visible-*-inline-block display: inline-block;

So, for extra small ( xs ) screens for example, the available .visible-*-* classes are: .visible-xs-block , .visible-xs-inline , and .visible-xs-inline-block .

The theme comes with Shortcode Generator. It is a drag & drop tool for placing shortcodes in widgets and posts.

How it works:

Step1: Open the Shortcode Generator

When editing a post, page or widget, click on the "Add shortcode" button to open the Shortcode Generator tool:

documentation

Step2: Drag & drop a shortcode into the "Drop area"

Choose a shortcode and drag & drop the shortcode box into the "Drop area".

documentation

Step3: Enter the shortcode parameters

When you click the shortcode title in the "Drop area" you will be able to fill in the shortcode parameters. Remember to click the "Set parameters" button to apply the parameters.

documentation

Step4: Display the shortcode

Once you are done, click the "Use shortcode" button to add the shortcode into the editor:

documentation

Remember to save the post, page or widget after all.



F. WPML

You need to to purchase a recent version of WPML, including the String Translation and Translation Management modules.

  • Install and activate the core WPML plugins (WPML Multilingual CMS, WPML String Translation, WPML Translation Management), and then other WPML plugins.
  • Set up WPML from WPML->Languages. See WPML Getting Started Guide for complete reference, but the initial simple three-step setup is self-explanatory (choose your default language, a set of active languages, and a language selector).

To translate a page you need to go to WP Admin –> Pages and in the list you will see columns for each active language, with a pencil icon (for ‘edit translation’) or a ‘+’ icon (for ‘add translation’) next to each page.

documentation

Read this to easily duplicate your existing content.

PE Beauty Center comes with extra custom post types (Members, Testimonials, Services, FAQ) and custom taxonomies. In order to get a similar interface for translation/duplication as for posts and pages, you need to go to WPML->Translation Management, and select the tab Multilingual Content Setup.

To translate strings you need to follow the procedure for Theme and Plugin Localization. Go to WPML->Theme and Plugin Localization, and click on Scan the theme for strings and you will see translated and untranslated theme strings.



G. OPTIMIZE YOUR SITE

To optimize our theme we use plugin W3 Total Cache

documentation

The highest rated and most complete WordPress performance plugin. Dramatically improve the speed and user experience of your site. Add browser, page, object and database caching as well as minify and content delivery network (CDN) to WordPress. See documentation.
