    Shayna Diamon: Adding Functionality With Custom Post Types And Custom Fields

    WordCamp D.C. 2017Speaker: Shayna Diamon

    November 9, 2017 — Custom Post types allow users to create posts that are automatically categorized for unique display and archiving. Custom Fields (improved by the Advanced Custom Fields plug-in) provide a simple user interface for adding specific content to a post, as well as an accessible mechanism for styling that information on the front end. By combining the two, you can develop custom features, including event directories, specializes menus and more. I will show how to add these features via plugins for non-developers and via code for developers who want more control.
