Files Structure

OnionBuzz has standard WordPress plugin structure. It includes both PHP files for server-side and JavaScript files to operate on client-side. Plugin core files located in lib/Core folder and are responsible for generation of grid HTML and injecting JS (like main JS frontend.js) from /static folder and CSS from /static folder on your site page. Also they are responsible for plugin options and settings storage.

Source code: PHP and JavaScript

Plugin main PHP class is defined in /lib/Core/Plugin.php. It provides standard WordPress plugin routine like settings and appearance presentation in admin and settings storage in WordPress database and also includes other .php files and injects .js, .css on site public pages. Nothing really to customize here, only in case of addition of new functionality .

Front-end scripting and third-party plugins are located in main JS file /frontend/js/frontend.js.

Design: CSS and images

We use multiple CSS files in this plugin: for admin and public. File like admin/css/admin.css is for plugin styles in WordPress admin like settings page. The second file /frontend/css/frontend.css contains stylings for the OnionBuzz on your site pages. Rest are third-party plugin’s CSS for admin e.g. colorpicker

Feel free to edit any of this CSS. Please double-check if editing more than just font or background color.
