  • Mandi Wise: Content-First Content Management

    WordCamp Vancouver 2015Speaker: Mandi Wise

    October 5, 2015 — WordPress offers a lot of power as a CMS, but all too often we can lose sight of the most essential of those three letters—the Content. Whether you’re a web designer, web developer, or end user of WordPress, potential pitfalls abound when planning for the structure and delivery of content is left until the eleventh hour. Using examples from real projects, I will demonstrate how taking a content-first approach to our WordPress work allows us to better harness the awesome power underneath its hood, and save ourselves and our clients from massive (and expensive!) content headaches down the road.

  • Michal Bluma: Du contenu sur mesure (sur papier!)

    WordCamp Montréal 2015Speaker: Michal Bluma

    September 21, 2015 — Surchargez l’aspect de gestionnaire de contenu de WordPress.

    La plupart du temps, vos clients ont besoin de présenter autre chose que des pages et des articles sur leurs sites. Que ce soient des livres, des éléments de portfolio, des films, des recettes ou des chats, ces contenus devraient être intégrés comme des Custom Post Types.

    Comment planifier tout ce contenu? Comment est-ce qu’on le visualise?

    Durant cette présentation, nous prendrons une approche « old school », analogue et sans une seule ligne de code. Nous verrons comment on peut bien se préparer avant même de commencer à coder. À l’aide de simples schémas que nous dessinerons nous -même, nous allons structurer tout notre contenu à l’avance.

    Quand viendra le temps de coder notre extension ou notre thème, nous aurons quelques longueurs d’avance. Si c’est un développeur qui s’occupera du reste, il va nous adorer, car il saura exactement quels CPTs et quelles métadonnées il devra préparer.

    S’il y a des intéressés, nous pourrons nous réunir après la présentation pour mettre en pratique ces concepts. Je vous montrerai comment faire le tout avec quelques extensions et quelques boucles de code sur mesure.

    Comme nous ne traiterons que de concepts de structure d’information, les seuls préalables sont votre curiosité ainsi que votre désir de rendre la tâche facile pour vos webmestres et gestionnaires de contenu.

  • Ryan Kanner: Content Aware WordPress Theming

    WordCamp Providence 2014Speaker: Ryan Kanner

    August 5, 2015 — WordPress themes aren’t always one size fits all, but we, as developers can help get them a little bit closer. Ever get a 911 email from a client saying they added an extra piece of content to the homepage, and now the whole layout is broken? One of the best things about WordPress is that it allows non-technical people to control the content of their website, so why are we not considering this when building themes? In this talk we look at some of the common ways WordPress themes get broken from dynamic content, and how to prevent them from happening.
