Conversions theme contains many hooks: actions and filters. This makes it highly extendable and easy to customize. All of the available hooks are listed below.
Many of the Homepage elements are modular and can be used as on other pages with shortcodes. The WordPress repository doesn’t allow themes to include shortcodes so you will have to add the following functions to your install. You can view what the shortcodes will appear like here: shortcodes.
Using the Shortcodes
// Clients shortcode [conversions_clients] // Counter shortcode [conversions_counter] // FAQ shortcode [conversions_faq] // Icon Features [conversions_icon_features] // Image Features [conversions_img_features] // Pricing tables shortcode [conversions_pricing] // Team shortcode [conversions_team] // Testimonials shortcode [conversions_testimonials]

# Developing with NPM & Grunt
Conversions uses NPM packages for dependencies such as Bootstrap, Font Awesome, Slick, Grunt modules, and so on. All packages can be found in the
/node_modules folder. Grunt is used as a taskrunner to compile SCSS, concatenate CSS/JS, autoprefix CSS, minify, and copy files. The following explains the usage and workflow.
1. Prerequisites: Install Node.js, Ruby, and Sass
To start with, you need Node.js installed on your computer globally. If you’ve already done this skip this. If not: You have to install Node.js (comes with NPM) before you can proceed. To install Node.js visit the node.js website for the latest installer for your OS. Download and install it.
Sass compiling tasks require you to have Ruby and Sass installed. If you’re on OS X or Linux you probably already have Ruby installed; test with
ruby -v in your terminal. When you’ve confirmed you have Ruby installed, run
gem install sass to install Sass.
2. Install via Git or Manually Download
Open a terminal go to the location where you want to install Conversions:
// Open a terminal go to the location where you want to install Conversions: cd path/to/location/ // If needed create the proper folder: mkdir conversions // Now pull Conversions via GitHub with: git clone https://github.com/jjs2484/conversions.git
