About the Book
Begginers` guide to WordPress Customizer is intended for begginners and developers who want to learn how to extend their theme options with WordPress Customizer.
In this book you will be introduced wih the WordPress Customizer and how to use it. As we go further into the book you will learn how to extend your themes options by adding WordPress Customizer and how to change its settings live (as they change) or on refresh (when they change).
You will also build several WordPress Customizer options to see in practical examples how it can be used.
After the creation of some simple WordPress Customizer options you will see and learn how to build you own custom controls which you can then use in your themes or plugins to enable different ways of data manipulation by the user of your theme or plugin.
In the last chapter we will look into available resources such as plugins, frameworks and snippets which you can freely use when developing your theme.
