Our Wordpress Plugin is currently in beta release. If you would like to know more, please contact your Customer Success Manager.

If you would like to learn about installing and configuring the plugin please read this first.

If you would like to create a fully customized UI for your website pages, please read this.

The plugin comes with a set of simple UI templates. These serve to get you up and running with a quick proof of concept or can be modified by a web developer to align with your company's branding and integrate into your existing site.

Overriding the Template Files

It is possible to override all the template files in your theme so that your developer can customize the page as you see fit.

To do this, copy the templates into your own custom theme and edit them from there. Beware that, if you edit the template files directly in the plugin, these changes will be lost when the plugin is updated.

There are 4 main templates.

1. archive-project.php

To override this page, add a folder to your theme called openasset and paste in the archive-project.php file which can be found in plugins/openasset/templates/archive-project.php

2. archive-employee.php

To override this page, add a folder to your theme called openasset and paste in the archive-employee.php file which can be found in plugins/openasset/templates/archive-employee.php

3. single-project.php

To override this page, add a folder to your theme called openasset and paste in the single-project.php file which can be found in plugins/openasset/templates/single-project.php

4. single-employee.php

To override this page, add a folder to your theme called openasset and paste in the single-employee.php file which can be found in plugins/openasset/templates/single-employee.php

Further Customization

To customize it further you can copy the content files inside of template-parts into your own theme. To do this, add a folder inside your yourtheme/openasset/template-parts/content and add in the relevant template files

1. content.php – used on employee and project archive page

2. content-project.php – used inside single-project.php

3. content-employee.php – used inside single-employee.php

You can also customize the keyword filter and search bar which are in /template-parts/partials. Just copy the template file into yourtheme/openasset/template-parts/partials and add the relevant template files.

1. keyword-filters.php

2.search-form.php
