  • Mark Wilkinson: Syndicating Content with WordPress

    Mark Wilkinson: Syndicating Content with WordPress

    WordCamp London 2019Speaker: Mark Wilkinson

    June 5, 2019 — Have you ever had a situation where you needed the same content on multiple websites, with just one place to edit it? Maybe in a network of WordPress sites?

    In this talk I will outline how we built a content syndication system for a network of WordPress sites, meaning that content required on all sites could be edited once and deployed out to one or all of the thousands of sites in the network.

    I will talk about the technologies we used to accomplish the task, the development challenges that were involved and how we overcame them.

    These systems are great for businesses which have lots of divisions, regions or franchises which need the same default content on each site.

  • Anaelle Sorignet: Slow content : publier moins, publier mieux

    Anaelle Sorignet: Slow content : publier moins, publier mieux

    WordCamp Bordeaux 2019Speaker: Anaelle Sorignet

    April 18, 2019 — Nous produisons bien plus d’informations que nous ne pouvons en consommer : à quoi bon ? Cette frénésie de publications entraîne un nivellement par le bas et dévalorise les contenus, dégageant un boulevard pour les fausses informations et les articles racoleurs.

    Et si nous ralentissions le rythme ? Et si nous prenions le temps de réfléchir au sens de nos contenus, de publier des articles de qualité, utiles à ceux qui les lisent, au monde qui nous entoure ?

    Le slow content est avantageux sur tous les plans : il améliore l’image de marque de ceux qui le pratique, bénéficie au référencement naturel… Mais si l’on va plus loin que l’aspect « communication digitale », le slow content est une véritable « écologie des contenus », nécessaire compte tenu de l’impact du numérique sur l’environnement.

    Francesca Marano: How to Format Your Text to Help Your Readers

    WordCamp Montreal 2018Speaker: Francesca Marano

    Formatting an article in WordPress can be boring and frustrating, but it’s a crucial step in writing for the web.
    People read on screen differently than on paper and formatting the text will help them get to the end of it.
