Hooks are a great way to easily modify the theme code without changing the actual source code. In this article we present a few useful hooks available to you in the GavernWP Framework.
Some WordPress plugins use custom post fields [http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Custom_Fields] to store data associated with specific posts. This is a good way, but if you want to display your own Custom Post Fields under your post, this method can cause problems with the display of unnecessary data.
The GavernWP framework supports a mechanism for predefined widget styles. This mechanism is used to create new styles for a tag cloud widget. Using it, you can achieve two different layouts without changing a single line of CSS code!
Generally, the frontpage of every WordPress blog presents a list of the latest posts to the blog. Some themes, however, will instead allow different content to be displayed to create a so – called custom frontpage. The GavernWP framework also provides such a mechanism. Using it, instead of displaying blog posts, it is possible to enable the display of widgets from the mainbody position.
The GavickPro GavernWP framework features a built-in subpage type which may be used to display simple image galleries in the form of a slideshow, as in above example.
