    Jim Bowes and Jon Bird: When One Size Doesn’t Fit All – Leveraging A Secondary CMS

    WordCamp London 2018Speakers: Jim Bowes, Jon Bird

    January 4, 2019 — Content management systems (CMSs) arose in the early 2000s, revolutionising website design. The old-fashioned style, stale content and low compatibility with mobile devices have driven website creation into the future. Modern, interactive, consistent multi-device and multi-channel experiences are now necessities. To power these online experiences, large, enterprise-level companies once were limited to a single, proprietary CMS. Today, many organisations are starting to realise that there can be tangible benefits to having multiple, strategic CMSs, including faster time to market, ease of use, agility and the ability to experiment and customise quickly.

    Join Jon Bird, head of Enterprise Sales and Strategic partnerships for WP Engine, and Jim Bowes, CEO of Manifesto, as they dive into the recently commissioned research, which surveyed 300 enterprise-level IT and marketing decision-makers in the U.S. and U.K. and look at what this means in practice for agencies using WordPress.

    Mark Wilkinson: WordPress is a CMS not a CMS

    WordCamp Bristol 2017Speaker: Mark Wilkinson

    October 12, 2018 — WordPress allows users to manage their content through the WordPress admin screens. This means users can add, edit and delete content and media and manage their sites without the need to ask developers for every change. WordPress is a content management system, but all too often it can end up becoming a content mismanagement system when editing and managing the site is just too difficult, This talk goes through some of the ways in which we build sites so they are easy to content manage, whilst allowing clients to edit pretty much all of their site. It will cover the different methods we use to make content management easy and some of the problems that we see with sites we have been asked to improve. Hopefully by the end of this talk attendees will come away with some practical examples on how to make content management with WordPress easier and quicker for users.

    Markus Wortmann: SIWECOS mit dem CMS-Garden

    WordCamp Cologne 2017Speaker: Markus Wortmann

    December 1, 2017 — Sicherheitslücken gibt es in jeder Software, auch in Content-Management-Systemen (CMS). Rund 97% aller Cyberangriffe erfolgen auf solche Sicherheitslücken. Deshalb ist es immens wichtig, dass Sicherheitsupdates zeitnah eingespielt werden.

    Doch die Zeitfenster zwischen dem Bekanntwerden einer Sicherheitslücke und den automatisierten Angriffen werden immer kürzer. Mit dem Veröffentlichen des Updates wird im Normalfall auch der Angriffspunkt bekannt und kann ausgenutzt werden. Hier liegt der Gedanke nahe, dass die Webhoster solche Angriffe über die Web Application Firewall abfangen können, so sie denn nur rechtzeitig davon erfahren.

    Der Name des Projekts, SIWECOS, steht für Sichere Webseiten und Content-Management-Systeme. Das Projekt hilft kleinen und mittelständischen Unternehmen (KMU) beim Vermeiden von Cyberangriffe auf ihre CMS. Im Rahmen der Initiative IT-Sicherheit in der Wirtschaft ist SIWECOS vom deutschen Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie gefördert. Die Initiative will vor allem KMU beim sicheren Einsatz von Internet- und Telekommunikationssystemen unterstützen.

  • Bronson Quick: Using WordPress As A Headless CMS

    Bronson Quick: Using WordPress As A Headless CMS

    WordCamp Sydney 2016Speaker: Bronson Quick

    February 3, 2017 — The WP REST API infrastructure was introduced in WordPress 4.4. The introduction of this infrastructure allows WordPress developers to now use WordPress as a headless CMS. A headless CMS has its frontend component (the head) stripped and removed from its backend, and what remains is a backend delivering content via an API. Some common use cases for headless CMS are as follows:

    * Serving data to other web applications
    * Mobile Apps
    * Websites and web apps built with MVC-style JavaScript frameworks

    Developers can install the WP REST API plugin to expose endpoints for WordPress for posts, pages, media and users. Developers can also extend the WordPress core REST infrastructure to register their own endpoints for custom post types and WordPress options.

    The WP REST API plugin will expose database content via JSON. This data can be used by developers to create sites using JavaScript frameworks such as React and also use the JSON data in mobile apps.

    Bronson will explain and demonstrate how you can use WordPress and the WP REST API to create a website that uses React on the frontend and WordPress on the backend as a headless CMS.
