I'm just starting to understand and learn about how Wordpress works. Now i'm trying to build a simple website (6 pages, gallery, slideshow) by using a downloaded from wordpress.org. The theme that I'm using has slideshow support in Theme Options section, but I'll like to hide the fact that i'm using that theme, or to replicate its functionality.

I'm thinking that maybe I can add a custom post type, but I'm too new to wp and I'm scared. Also, I was thinking that I can use some plugins like members in order to block some users access to the themes, but to allow access only to theme options section. With this plugin I can only hide access to entire Appearance section.

I'm looking forward for your advice.

ps: I don't know if it really matters or not, but the theme that I'm using is thbusiness.

  • It seems like you're actually asking three questions here; it's likely your question will be put on hold because of this. Why do you need to add a custom post type? If you're interested in learning how to develop for WP you can skip the plugin for members and instead read the WP Codex entry on user roles and capabilities; this will let you limit who has access to the theme options pretty easily. – Dre Dec 13 '14 at 18:22

I had a quick peek at the theme files and it looks like it's using the Options Framework to add its options. If you look inside options.php you'll see that $options consists of a multi-dimensional array. The Options Framework is pretty easy to use; simply include the necessary files and then create your options as required.
