Building a controller and a view for Wordpress

We will not describe the whole process of creating a controller and a view in the Moufpress documentation. Indeed, Moufpress is just a compatibility layer on top of the Splash MVC framework. Therefore, you can simply refer to the Splash MVC video tutorial to get started.

Integrating with Wordpress theme

When you run MoufPress' installer, a wordpressTemplate instance will be created. This instance represents the current Wordpress theme. Therefore, calling $wordpressTemplate->toHtml() will trigger the display of the Wordpress theme. If you do not call this method, the Wordpress theme will not be displayed and anything outputed will be directly sent to the browser. This is a fairly easy way to do some Ajax since you won't be polluted by the Wordpress theme at all.

Managing the title

As with any Splash templates, you can modify the title of the template using the setTitle. For instance, calling $wordpressTemplate->setTitle("My page") will set the title in both the Wordpress template and the <title> tag.

Specific to Moufpress: you can also use the @Title annotation in your controller to set the title of the page. For instance:

 * @URL mytest
 * @Title My page
public function index() {
    $this->content->addFile(ROOT_PATH.'src/views/myview.php', $this);

Troubleshooting: if the title is not displayed correctly in the <title> tag (especially, if you see the "WP Router Placeholder Page" text instead of your title, it is likely that you are using the "All-in-one SEO pack" plugin. This module rewrites the title in a way that is not compatible with Moufpress. A simple workaround to disable this feature of the "All-in-one SEO pack" plugin in Moufpress is to edit your header.php file in your theme and add a space in the title tag.

For instance, write:

<title ><?php wp_title( '|', true, 'right' ); ?></title>

instead of

<title><?php wp_title( '|', true, 'right' ); ?></title>
