Problem: you want to progressively move pages over to Oxygen yet there’s no easy way to switch rendering between Oxygen and your theme and its third-party builders.
Solution: a nice setup that allows you to easily toggle Oxygen rendering on/off on a per page basis using existing plugins and a few new lines of code.
Background: Oxygen is the name of a premium software addon for the WordPress content management system for websites. By default Oxygen completely disables WordPress’s themes.
Oxygen should be installed.
Install the modded Oxygen theme enabler plugin (ZIP direct download) and activate it.
Switch the theme enabler to default to theme. Do this under Oxygen > Theme Enabler > Use theme for most pages.
Install the mighty ACF plugin (from WordPress.org) and activate it.
Import this ACF prebuilt setup (.JSON direct download) under Custom Fields > Tools > Import.
Celebrate? This is how your Edit Page screens should then look – with the Classic Editor (WordPress.org plugin page).
• Use Sridhar’s plugin* to force rendering to the theme.
• Use ACF to create checkboxes for pages.
• *Modify the plugin to check for pages’ ACF meta value and switch to Oxygen accordingly.
Tested working with:
Oxygen 3.5 RC 1,
Theme Enabler 1.0.2 modded,
Advanced Custom Fields 5.8.14,
