Customizing your Beans child-theme - part 1

Now that I've covered getting setup with Beans, I'm going to move on to some practical examples of how you can customize your child-theme using Beans.

  1. Thanks a lot for this very useful tutorial. Very clear. A little suggestion : add this video on the Bean Github page and on the Beans official website. 🙂

    • Thanks Mathieu! I have many more planned 😉

      As for adding it to the Beans site, that's something you'd have to suggest to Thierry, as he's the one who decides what gets added to the Beans site.

  2. Hi Chris. Thanks for this tutorial. Very useful - and easy to follow! Are you South African? Based in South Africa?

    • Hi Des,

      Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you found the tutorial useful! Yes, I am South African 😉 I used to be based in Cape Town, but recently moved to my dads 2.2 hectare plot in Hoekwil .

      • I'm live in Kloof, just outside Durban. Only recently discovered Beans ... and your tutorials and child themes (great to hear a South African!) My main hesitation in "adopting" the theme for some of my non-profit clients is the level of support available (from the Beans developer and from the "community" which I assume is still quite small judging by the questions/comments/responses in the support section of the developer's site). Am I wrong?

        • The community is just starting out for sure and Thierry is doing his best to handle most of the support. He does have a full time job, working for a WordPress VIP partner (which should say something about the quality of his work) and a baby on the way. More community involvement will come with time, I'm sure - especially if you consider the rate of adoption. I've been meaning to get more involved on the forums, but have had a lot going on, but things are starting to settle, so once I have solar/internet setup, I'll help out where I can. Also, because Beans is built using standard WordPress best-practices, any WordPress developer would be able jump in and it all make sense. There is also extensive documentation available and i'll be posting more tutorials over time.

          • Thanks!
