How To Create A Frontend Model

Location

Frontend models are located in the /mvc/models/ directory and must extend the MVC_Front_General class. The class name should be prefixed with MVC_Front_ and the filename should be the class name in lowercase with an extension of .class.php. For example, with a portfolio model, the class name could be MVC_Front_Portfolio with a filename of mvc_front_portfolio.class.php. If desired, models can be organised into sub-directories.

Required Methods

All frontend models must implement the following public methods;

  • actions_fn: Registers all action hooks. Should hook enqueue_fn to wp_enqueue_scripts

  • filters_fn: Registers all filter hooks

  • enqeue_fn: Registers/enqueues all CSS and JS files

Example File

A minimal template is located in the /mvc/models/mvc_front_sample.class.php file. Note that this file will be loaded; to avoid errors remember to name your model class before saving a new file.
