1.1 Introduction

Hello, and welcome to this Tuts+ course on writing Customizer-Ready WordPress Themes. In this course, you'll learn how to add the theme customizer to your themes, so that users of your theme can use the customizer to upload images, to add text to their site, and also to change the color scheme. And we'll be using the Theme Customization API as we go along. So here's what we'll be adding to the customizer. Firstly, they'll be a Contact Details section, where you'll add in Address, Telephone Number and an Email address. We'll then move on to images. And we'll give people the option to upload a logo and also to change where it appears. And then finally, we'll work with the color scheme. You'll create color controls in the customizer and people working with your theme will be able to use these to select colors. In the next part of the course, I'll give you an introduction to how the customizer works and how users interact with it. See you next time and thanks for watching.
