Storefront is mainly an eCommerce theme, it is built by the developers of WooCommerce, for WooCommerce users.
But, it is a very customizable theme, so it can also be used in other ways. In example, I use it on this blog, without WooCommerce, and it still works perfectly. Many people use it with WooCommerce but only as a catalog, so customers are not able to buy products on the site, but just look at them.
In this last case, you probably don’t need the Cart and Checkout pages, so you remove them, but Storefront still shows a menu in the Footer area when you visit the site on a mobile device, and that menu leads you to the Cart page as well, which you removed.
In the last month I worked on two new plugins for WordPress that connect to Discord and Twitch to write a message in a Discord server’s channel when a new post is published on a site, and to get the status of a Twitch stream with a shortcode and/or a widget.
I worked on them live on my Twitch channel during two different Coding Day events, you can find the recordings in the Past Transmissions on Twitch.
I’m happy to announce that they are finally available on WordPress.org!
I worked on a site for a friend some time ago and she is a streamer on Twitch. What I wanted to add is a widget in the header that shows her Twitch stream status, so when she is live, if someone goes to the site, they can see that, and eventually check her live Twitch stream.
Knowing if someone is live via the API that Twitch provides is very easy. Let’s check how I did that.
