    @srumery, very cool!
    I have something similar in a private repository in bitbucket, but just haven’t gotten around to putting it on github yet.
    I’ll read through your objectives/goals, and If they are inline with my ideas perhaps I’ll just contribute instead, or even both.
    JStart is such a great framework, and I think this will continue to grow.

    Odd, I uninstalled both the “Content Editor Templates” and the “theme-blvd-shortcodes” (v1.4.1) and re-installed them.
    And….. now they are both visible and working.

    @Jason Bobich – The additional media button I have is from the “Content Editor Templates for WordPress” plugin by themergency.com

    When using the theme-blvd-shortcodes v1.4 both buttons worked well and were visible.

    After updating to v1.4.1, I noticed the Content Editor Templates button was not visible anymore.
    Reverting to v1.4 brings it back.

    *Note: My buttons are lacking text because I am filtering them.

    I don’t use Visual Composer, but I have noticed something similar since the recent update to the theme-blvd-shortcodes to version 1.4.1

    Another button that was there, now will not show.

    If I disable the new theme-blvd-shortcodes v1.4.1 it comes back, and if I revert back to v1.4 they also come back.

    Thanks Jason!
    This makes me laugh at myself….
    It was staring at me the whole time, like looking for sunglasses on your head!
    Funny how we overlook the obvious sometimes.

    Thanks again for the extra pair of eyes.
    And thank you for continually moving forward with JS even though it’s not 1st priority, it’s a great framework.
    I used to just build my own but I have to say, letting someone else do all the updates (you!) is quite the time saver and you really pay attention to details, so thanks!

    Jason,
    Actually I just found a small issue with the function that initially worked.
    For just 1 post type, it works fine.
    I have 3 post types and it only shows on 1 of them. Cannot get it (sidebar meta box) to show on the other two. Any ideas?
    This is what I had:

    function my_cpt_meta_box( $args ) {
        $args['post_type']['page'] = 'my-customposttype';
        $args['post_type']['page'] = 'my-customposttype2';
        $args['post_type']['page'] = 'my-customposttype3';
        return $args;
    }
    add_filter( 'themeblvd_sidebar_meta_box', 'my_cpt_meta_box' );

    Ok, I figured it out.
    I found the filter in the includes/admin/class-tb-sidebar-manager.php “themeblvd_sidebar_meta_box” from the theme-blvd-widget-areas plugin.

    I used this and it works. (function name and CPT name I changed for example)

    function my_cpt_meta_box( $args ) {
        $args['post_type']['page'] = 'my-customposttype';
        return $args;
    }
    add_filter( 'themeblvd_sidebar_meta_box', 'my_cpt_meta_box' );

    I tried using the “themeblvd_sidebar_meta_box” and “themeblvd_sidebar” filter and did not work.

    function my__sidebar_meta( $setup ) {
        $setup['config']['page'][] = 'customposttype';
        return $setup;
    }
    add_filter( 'themeblvd_sidebar_meta', 'my__sidebar_meta' );

    Jason, to extend this question, how about for the “sidebars” options meta box normally available for posts and pages.

    Excellent!

    Luv it, looks great!
    Could you add a filter to the button wording so it could be changed or removed. Just the TB logo works for me.

    Ditto to what Joseph Sellers mentioned, I have noticed that as well.
    Which brings up something you mentioned awhile back, and that was to redo the shortcode button anyway so it’s not just hooked into the TinyMCE, but also available to the text editor, like next to the “media” button, making it available to those who never use the “Visual” editor (like me).
    I actually turn it off in my functions so I’ve moved all the shortcodes elsewhere so I can use them.
    Since WP is doing a big upgrade to the TinyMCE and breaking things, maybe now’s the time 🙂

    Keep up the good work Jason!

    Hey…. I just noticed under my name is said “participant”.
    I guess my license must have expired, will have to get to that.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a really fair comparison of frameworks.
    Even if there is caching, and even the same server, there must be the same content, images, and much more to get even close to being a level test.
    As Jason Bobich pointed out, some frameworks “cheat” on their demos and give false impressions.

    There are so many factors to take into account to create a fair comparison.
    They would need to be put on a real site under real conditions for a given period of time, then swapped.
    Servers speeds fluctuate, so many speed/loading tests would need to be done then averaged out.

    I think people need to look more at what their end goal is for the website, the features they need, usability, extensibility, localization, and more to really make an educated decision about what they should use for their website.

    There is no single product that will fulfill the needs of every project you might have.
    I think the project needs should always come first, then you fulfill the need with what fits best.

    I love JumpStart, and I think Jason outdid himself with this framework.
    It’s really well thought out, and the extensive usage of filters/actions is superior to many frameworks.
    There is not too much I could not do with this framework, it is definitely in my top 3 favorite frameworks ever created (for WP).
    Having said that, even I don’t use JumpStart for 100% of my projects. There are times when a custom rolled PHP framework is better suited, or even non-WordPress.

    If you really want speed from your framework (which you should), then your own decisions and actions is what will make the real difference when your site goes live.
    Use caching and a cdn, do not load assets you don’t need on the page, don’t upload non-optimized images to your site, carefully select plugins you use, pay attention to the “weight” of your pages.Big sliders seem so popular, but they are one of the largest assets to load on a page, and typically the homepage which should be one of the lightest pages.

    Anyways……… @JumpStart…… your awesome!

    I’ve played with WooThemes Sensei plugin a little with JumpStart, and the issues that come up are not JumpStart, they are from the Sensei templating.
    It’s not even Sensei’s fault, they make it very clear the plugin is developed around WooThemes and Default WordPress themes, and minor templating may be required for other themes.

    Out of the box Sensei will work with your theme, however it is possible you will need to make changes to the markup or the structure of a Course, Lesson, etc, for display with your theme. All you need to do is make a folder called /sensei/ in your theme root. Then simply copy the files and folder over from the plugins /templates/ folder.

    I would follow their documentation and you’ll be able to integrate with JumpStart without issue.
    I have already done this on a local site while testing and playing.
    Here is the Sensei templating link.

    Excellent. Thanks for the swift reply.
    P.S. – Like what you’ve done with the Jump Start coding, well thought out and structured, just the way it should be.
