Our themes and plugins are designed and developed to look and function great on a range of devices and WordPress configurations.
For those looking to go beyond the standard features and functionality of our products, to enhance or modify the default look and functionality of WordPress or the theme, this can be done with either plugins or customization.
Our themes include a pre-packaged child theme, which allows for completely bespoke development of the base (parent) theme. You may wish to read the Child Themes guidance on WordPress.org.
The key benefits of using a child theme is that it allows developers to override theme styles and functionality, while leaving the base theme unaltered. This makes development quicker and ensures customizations are unaffected by updates to the parent theme.
The HeroThemes code snippets library gives some examples of basic customizations that can be achieved using the built in hooks and filters of the products.
Plugins can extend WordPress to provide a variety of different functionality. Plugins can be added directly from Plugins > Add New. Use the search functionality to install directly from the WordPress plugin directory or select Upload Plugin at the top of the page to upload a premium plugin.
