4.1 Implementing Our First Setting

In this lesson, we begin integrating the Theme Customizer. We do this by taking advantage of the necessary WordPress hooks, as well as the Theme Customization API.

First, we introduce a new section named *Display Options* that is used to add a new section to the Theme Customizer that's available with our theme.

Next, we introduce our own setting into the section that will ultimately allow us to change the color of anchors used throughout the entire theme. The setting will be placed within the *Display Options* section.

We discuss default values, transport methods, and more.

After that, we introduce a new control that's responsible for displaying the value setting, and that allows users to change the value so that they are able to customize the theme.
