Theme Extensions

As required both by ThemeForest and, some features – we’re calling them extensions now – have been moved to the companion plugin Alx Extensions. If you have a theme from AlxMedia, make sure to have it installed! You are missing out on several nice features if you don’t.

What extensions?

The plugin includes the following features:

  • Social sharing buttons – Includes some neat sharing icons with share count on articles single view
  • Image/thumbnail upscaling – Scales up too small images before cropping so that all cropped images get the same size.
  • Custom sidebars – Create unlimited sidebars for your theme and select them in Theme Options > Sidebars in your theme’s options.
  • Custom widgets – Includes two popular custom widgets, Alx Posts and Alx Tabs
  • Meta boxes – Currently includes two post format meta boxes, one for audio posts and one for videos.

All of these options can be turned on/off from the live customizer panel, Customize > Theme Extensions.
