    Thierry Pigot: Les contenus personnalisés, késako ?

    WordCamp Marseille 2017Speaker: Thierry Pigot

    September 27, 2017 — Partons à la découverte des contenus personnalisés : custom post type, custom taxonomies, custom fields… Introduite dans la version 3 de WordPress, cette technique de segmentation et d’augmentation de contenu est souvent mal exploitée.

    Mythe ou légende ? Nous verrons qu’au final, ce n’est pas si sorcier de faire un site complexe et agréable à administrer. Le but de cette conférence est donc de bien comprendre ce que c’est, comment les créer, mais surtout, de voir quelques cas d’utilisation.

  • David Dashifen Kees: Site Directories and Member Profiles: A Custom Post Type Story

    David Dashifen Kees: Site Directories and Member Profiles: A Custom Post Type Story

    WordCamp Baltimore 2016Speaker: David Dashifen Kees

    November 22, 2016 — Undergraduates. Graduates. Post-docs. Researchers. Staff. Investigators, both principle and otherwise. Faculty. Just about every site that one works with in Higher Education has lists and lists of people. A WordPress Page can be used to present this information, but keeping them organized on that Page — especially for larger directories and when each person within a directory has their own member profile — is a daunting task. The solution: a custom post type. Come hear about how David Dashifen Kees developed a Site Directory and Profile plugin for use on the University of Illinois’s WordPress Network, Publish.illinois.edu, and how it — along with carefully crafted filters, templates, and CSS — has provided the means by which campus sites present lists of people for going on three years now. And, he’s recently enhanced the plugin to make use of on-campus APIs to load site member information from data sources other than the site’s database providing more flexibility and interoperability throughout the campus.

    Stefan Fröhlich: Eigene Themes from Scratch

    WordCamp Berlin 2015Speaker: Stefan Fröhlich

    January 25, 2016 — Für viele Projekte braucht es lediglich einen Bruchteil der Funktionalität und des Codes sogenannter “Premium”-Themes oder Frameworks – denen dafür andere, wichtige Features oft fehlen. Um die Projektanforderungen und das gewünschte Design entsprechend umzusetzen, ist es dann deutlich sinnvoller, ein individuelles Theme zu entwickeln. Die Anwender erhalten so ein intuitives und übersichtliches System mit den Optionen, die sie wirklich brauchen. Und der Browser schlankeren Code ohne unnötigen Ballast.
