Custom theme integration

If you want your own theme to support front end editing with FrontKit, you just need to add theme support for frontkit and define the CSS paths to some elements in the theme.

For example, place the following in your functions.php changing the CSS paths where necessary.:

add_theme_support( 'frontkit', array(     'title'           => '.single-post .entry-title',     'content'         => '.single-post .post-content', ) );
