    Frank Staude: Child Themes – Was ist das und wie kann ich das selbst nutzen?

    WordCamp Cologne 2015Speaker: Frank Staude

    July 15, 2015 — Stunden- oder tagelang hat man nach einem passenden Theme gesucht. Irgendwann hat man dann endlich „das“ Theme gefunden, fast perfekt … Nur noch ein bisschen was im Stylesheet anpassen und in dem einen oder anderen Template was ändern – perfekt! Eines Tages gibt es ein Update des Themes. Nichtsahnend führt man die Aktualisierung aus, doch – oh Schreck, alle Änderungen sind weg!

    Damit genau das nicht passiert, hat WordPress das Konzept der Childthemes eingeführt. Frank zeigt Euch in dieser Session, wie man ein Child Theme anlegt, wie es funktioniert und welche Besonderheiten es gibt.

    Torsten Landsiedel: Das Child Theme Dilemma

    WordCamp Cologne 2015Speaker: Torsten Landsiedel

    July 15, 2015 — Die üblichen Einführungen zum Thema Child Themes hören da auf, wo es spannend wird: Wie umgehe ich das @import in der CSS-Datei korrekt? Was mache ich bei einem Update des Eltern-Theme mit meinen angepassten Dateien? Womöglich ist ja genau in der Datei, die ich angepasst habe eine Sicherheitslücke und die sollte ich schließen …

    Torsten zeigt in seiner Präsentation mögliche Defizite von Child Themes auf und schlägt eine Lösung vor, wie man WordPress noch viel Child-Theme-freundlicher machen könnte. Das Thema richtet sich vor allem an Theme-Entwickler und alle, die nach dem Child-Theme-Vortrag in Hamburg weiter machen wollen.

    Tammie Lister: Mighty Morphing Design

    WordCamp Europe 2015Speaker: Tammie Lister

    July 10, 2015 — Beyond the land of responsive design lies the world of adaptive experiences. Where not only does your site work well on different screen sizes, it adapts to them. Mighty morphing design works on any device, in any place. Yet it goes beyond that, these are designs that optimise, reduce and change depending on the device you are using. It’s beyond just popping a sidebar below the content and calling it responsive. Mighty morphing design is the way we should and need to be designing. In this talk I’ll show you what it is and show you how you can become a mighty morphing designer.
