Default Theme Pages

Adds unremovable default pages for templating themes

This plugin is intended to be useful for template developers

New in version 0.4

  • added 'object' (page object) in every $default_theme_pages item for fast access.
  • added all default pages to wp toolbar, inside 'site name', to increase user experience.

How to use

Add this code in your functions.php.

global $default_theme_pages;
$default_theme_pages = array(
    array(
        'name' => 'home',               // initial slug page / id for templating - access functions
        'title' => 'Homepage',          // page title
        'option' => 'page_on_front',    // option page id ( stores the page id in an option, use only in theese cases)
        'description' => 'homepage'     // description
    ),
    array(
        'name' => 'blog',
        'title' => 'Blog',
        'option' => 'page_for_posts',
        'description' => 'blog'
    ),
    array(
        'name' => 'contact',
        'title' => 'Contact me!',
        'description' => 'Contact form page'
    )
 );

Tips

  • After the pages are created automatically, you can change their title and slug without problem.
  • If you add an option names: page_on_front and page_for_posts, you will block the home-page and the blog-page on your site.

Templating

You can template using ID or name (setted up in $default_theme_pages global variable ), something like:

page-131.php or page-contact.php (If you change the page slug, this will still work because 'contact' was defined as pagename if $default_theme_pages global variable).

For detect if you're in that page:

dtp_is_page('contact')

Getting a default page id:

$page_id = dtp_get_page_id('contact');

This method is more quick than get_page_by_path because page ID is stored on global variable.
