Notes for developers/designers

There are six templates within the plugin as examples to use it in your custom theme:

  • single-spectacle.php # Single Show page
  • single-performance.php # Single Performance page
  • archive-spectacle.php # List of available Shows
  • archive-performance.php # List of available Performances
  • check-dates-form.php # To filter performances by date
  • taxonomy-format.php # Productions by category

You can copy the files located in includes/templates within the plugin directory to your theme’s directory and modify it to your liking.

Define TWP_THEME constant in your theme if using the templates to avoid duplicate content:

define( 'TWP_THEME', true );

Have a look into classes/theatrewp/class-theatrewp.php for functions to use in your templates.
