    Sasha Endoh: Simplifying Flexible Content With Advanced Custom Fields

    WordCamp Montreal 2016Speaker: Sasha Endoh

    November 18, 2016 — Seemingly every theme these days comes with a heavy-duty page builder, in an attempt to provide an easy way to display content flexibly. But have you ever tried to use one? They’re more complex than they seem and are a nightmare to use for clients. In this talk, we’ll walk through the major flaws of common page builders. I’ll then introduce you to an alternative solution using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin that still offers your clients the flexibility they desire, while offering developers and designers more control over the work they do… and none of the annoying pitfalls of traditional page builders.

    Tomoaki Yoshida: CMSとしてのWordPress – WordPressで管理するランディングページ –

    WordCamp Tokyo 2016Speaker: Tomoaki Yoshida

    October 11, 2016 — ランディングページや入力フォームページをどのようにしてWordPressにて管理しているかをご紹介します。

    現在、Sansan株式会社マーケティング部では50ページ程度のシンプルな入力フォームからランディングページまで、様々な様式のページをWordPressで管理しています。

    WordPress本体やプラグインのアップデートでのコンフリクトなどを避けるため、極力既存のプラグインに頼らずfunctions.phpに独自関数を記述するなどの工夫をしています。

    また、プラグインは厳選したもののみ使用するのですが、その中でもAdvanced Custom Fieldsは最大限に活用し、スマホ専用ページの有無と表示切り替え、サンクスページやサンクスメールの作成、コンバージョン測定ツールのタグ設置などを管理画面から設定できるようにし、各ページで条件分岐するなどして様々な表示に対応しています。
