A skin is a mini template folder that you can use to create your own design or to modify an existing design to fit your needs.
The skin folder is placed outside the plugin folder in your uploads folder, this way it will not be overwritten by plugin updates.
The skin folder has four files inside:
The card.php is used for adding the style of the card, usually this will contain a name and profile image.
The info.php is used for the panel that shows extra information, this can be a side panel, layover, or expanding panel.
Usually this will have the extra bio info like contact info, social buttons and a short bio.
The config.php is used for settings that are needed for the design:
- Name of the skin
- Type of panel we are using
- Meta fields we are using
- Grid type
- Number of columns
