Siteturner’s DT Plugin Suite

DT Plugin Suite is collection of WordPress plugins developed to add functionality to our selection of free Siteturner WordPress themes.

You can download the zip below.  Contained in the archive is the DT Features plugin, the DT Testimonials plugin, the DT Projects plugin and the DT People plugin.  See below for a detailed explanation of each plugin.

Download

To install, unzip the archive and upload each plugin individually through the WordPress dashboard as you normally would, or upload the contents of the archive to your wp-content/plugins folder.

DT Features

The DT Features plugin gives you the ability to highlight what your product, service or organization has to offer. It’s as easy to use as it is to post content in WordPress. Once the plugin is activated, you will see the section DT Features appear on your Dashboard menu. Here you can add new Features, just as you would add posts and pages to your site.

Each Feature you create allows for an optional image and link. If not needed, you can safely omit either. Jump Right In contains special styling and options for the DT Feature plugin to control how Features are pulled and displayed on the homepage of your site. Once the theme and plugin are installed and activated, you can access these options by navigating to Appearance > Customize. The options are located under the Features Section, and include:

Number of features to show: How many features you want to show on the homepage. In the demo of Jump Right In on DiabloThemes, for example, this is set to 3.

Number of columns: How many columns to display your features in. On our demo for Jump Right In, this is also set to 3. However, you could arrange these in different ways – choose to show 4 features with the above options, and display them in 2 columns, resulting in a two-by-two grid.

Image Size: The size of the image attached to each feature. It’s set by width in px. For precise control, you might consider preparing the images before hand with a external program like Photoshop for best results. On the demo for Jump Right In, our image size is set to 250.

Feature Group: The DT Features gives you the option to create groups and assign them to specific features (for all intents and purposes, this works the same way as categories on regular posts). If you have a specific group of features you want to display on the homepage, you can select it here.

Sort By: The sorting order of the features. The options are No Order, Entry ID, Title, Specified Order (set using the order attribute on each Features edit page) and Random

Enabled Feature Link Button: If you’ve specified an link and URL for the feature, you can optionally display it as an attached button. This is disabled on the Jump Right In Demo.

Link Image & Title: If you’ve specified an optional URL, you can link it to the image and title of the feature.

Title for section: A title for your homepage’s features section. On the Jump Right In demo, for example, this is “Everything You Need; Nothing that you don’t.”.

Although our themes display DT Features on the homepage, if you’d like to add features elsewhere on your site, we’ve included both a shortcode for adding features to Pages and Posts, and an action for adding a features section directly to a template file. Styling of these sections may depend on their placement, or may require a div wrapper and unique class for stylized output.

DT Features also creates a widget with similar options, should you choose to display some features in a sidebar area.

DT Testimonials

The DT Testimonials plugin gives you the ability to showcase some of the things your customers and clients are saying. Like the DT Features plugin, it’s as easy to use as it is to post content in WordPress. Once the plugin is activated, you will see the section DT Testimonials appear on your Dashboard menu. Here you can add new Testimonials, just as you would add posts and pages to your site.

Each Testimonial you create allows for an optional image (usually of the individual or organization providing the testimonial, the client’s position or company’s description, and a link to their site. If not needed, you can safely omit them.. Jump Right In contains special styling and options for how the DT Testimonials plugin displays testimonials on your homepage. Once the theme and plugin are installed and activated, you can access these options by navigating to Appearance > Customize. The options are located under the Testimonials Section, and include:

Image Size: The size of the image attached to each feature. It’s set by width in px. For precise control, you might consider preparing the images before hand with a external program like Photoshop for best results and to perhaps prevent cutting off a client’s head. On the demo for Jump Right In, our image size is set to 100.

Testimonial Group: The DT Testimonials gives you the option to create groups and assign them to specific testimonials (for all intents and purposes, this works the same way as categories on regular posts). If you have a specific group of testimonials you want to display on the homepage, you can select it here.

Title for section: A title for your homepage’s testimonials section. On the Jump Right In demo, for example, this is “Here’s what people are saying about us”!

Although our themes display DT Testimonials on the homepage, as with the DT Feature plugin, if you’d like to add testimonials elsewhere on your site, we’ve included both a shortcode for adding features to Pages and Posts, and an action for adding a testimonials section directly to a template file.
