  • Peter Lauge: Avancerede WordPress-løsninger

    Peter Lauge: Avancerede WordPress-løsninger

    WordCamp Denmark 2014Speaker: Peter Lauge

    July 14, 2014 &#8212 Vi bruger næsten altid WordPress som framework for de online løsninger vi laver, helt fra meget små løsninger til store og komplekse løsninger. Vi bruger generelt så få plugins som muligt, men koder alt fra bunden så det er optimeret til kundens løsning. Der er også langt imellem at vi laver løsninger på købe-temaer, det er kun ved små budgetter.

    Jeg vil gerne vise nogle af de mere komplekse løsninger vi har lavet i WordPress, samt gå lidt i dybden med de få plug-ins vi bruger:
    1) Advanced Custom Fields
    2) Advanced Custom Fields: Flexible Content Field
    3) CMS Tree Page View
    4) Members only
