    Bryan Cady: Create Post Types and Custom Layouts Without PHP

    WordCamp Kent 2017Speaker: Bryan Cady

    July 6, 2017 — I’ll explain what a custom post type is and how you can use them the with the plugin called “WP-Views” to create a specific layout of content for your client.

    Points of emphasis:
    1. What is a custom post type and why would you use one?
    2. Advantages of customizing WordPress layouts.
    3. Explain by example, how to customize a site by mocking a basic page up with some styling.
    4. Emphasize how this can help separate yourself from others who just use what is available in the theme or plugins. A web designer/developer can give the client EXACTLY what they want. (Well, most of the time.)
    5. Discuss simplifying the publishing process for the client.
    6. No PHP experience needed
