    Does GP allow:

    -User uploaded video or blog post content?
    -Forum option?
    -Ability to edit theme code for custom site code?
    -A search bar to be top and center across the site?

    I’d like to have this theme support all of the above for one site.

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    – Yes, this is handled by the post editor and media library which are WP features.

    – No, you would need a plugin for this. We are using bbPress here.

    – Typically, we have a filter for everything that a user would want to edit:

    You can also use a child theme if you wish to edit any theme core files.

    – You can add a WP core search widget in the top bar widget area:

    Thanks for the response.

    With the ‘user uploaded video or blog post content’ question I was referring to visitors of the website having the ability to upload video and blog content. Is this possible?

    How can I edit the theme files, as I see no theme editor option available?

    Thanks!

    Hi Ross,

    You’ll need a plugin for that.

    Example:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/nmedia-user-file-uploader/

    Reminder: Letting guest visitors upload media files on your site is not recommended. Your site will be prone to storage capacity management issues.

    Okay, what about editing the GP theme file and website code. I don’t see the theme editor option. Thanks.

    Hi there,

    the Theme Editor options is a core function.
    If its not showing when you’re logged in as an Admin then its most likely your sites wp-config has:

    define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', true);

    or a security plugin is blocking it.

    NOTE – don’t directly edit the Theme files as any changes you make to them will be lost when the theme is updated. Please use a child theme if necessary:

    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/using-child-theme/

    The theme has a LOT of apply_filter functions throughout it – so most changes can be made without directly overwriting files.
