Posts scheduling #

Publish date option appear only for admin and editor roles, by this option they can change publish date.

Default meme templates #

By default, we provide our set of memes, but you can change or add your own set of memes via the child theme.

To add your own set of memes go to wp-content/themes/your active theme and create this path \zombify\assets\images\meme-templates, after that system will show default meme images only from that folder \meme-templates. If you want to save main memes set, just add images from this zip file to that folder.

Note: titles of the images must consist characters only from the following set:

  1. A–Z
  2. a–z
  3. 0–9
  4. _ (underscore)
  • How to limit Zombify post types for specific user roles?

    You will need to add below code in boombox-child/functions.php

    add_filter( 'zf_activate_for_roles', 'my_activate_for_roles' );
    function my_activate_for_roles( $active_for_roles ) {
     $active_for_roles['administrator'] = array( 'openlist', 'rankedlist' );
     $active_for_roles['editor'] = array( 'openlist', 'rankedlist' ); 
     return $active_for_roles;
    }
