Page Builders free WordPress from the constraints TinyMCE Editor. However, you don’t have much choice over what they render, and left in the wrong hands, designs can get messed up past the point of easy untangling! By piggy-backing on the Post Meta Data we can build feature-rich Page’s in a bespoke manner with full control of the end product.

This talk will walk you through how to build an in-house Page Builder that fits your particular needs using Advanced Custom Fields. By deconstructing a Page into its constituent parts, we can render the frontend in a very flexible manner so you and redesign as necessary and future-proof your content. With the addition of Bootstrap or Zurb Foundation, a fully responsive design can be easily achieved.
