    George Spake: Beyond Custom Post Types – Building an Organizational News Site with WordPress

    WordCamp Raleigh 2017Speaker: George Spake

    June 4, 2017 — Prior to the development of the current Campus News site, there wasn’t really a public facing news site as much as a static archive of press releases without rich content, pictures, seo, or any kind sorting mechanism. Since we migrated in to the new site, we’ve seen a huge improvement in the quality and volume of news content and a dramatic increase in engagement with UTHSC news.

    This talk will focus on how we were able to leverage custom post types, taxonomies, fields, and templates and other built-in features to develop a highly customized, powerful site with lots of cool features including our campus-announcements system and an archive of press coverage from outside media. I’ll also emphasize some of the steps we took to ensure a quality user experience for the Communications and Marketing department who maintains the site’s content.

    WordPress stellt uns bereits einige Varianten von Beitragsformaten zur Verfügung. Manchmal braucht mal aber zusätzliche Formate z.B. für Portfolio- oder Testimonial-Beiträge. Wenn wir so etwas haben wollen, müssen wir WordPress erweitern.

    Frank erklärt am Beispiel einer Website, wie man das fast ohne Programmier-Kenntnisse erreichen kann. Er stellt einige Plugins vor, die bei der Erstellung und Anpassung eines WordPress Themes sehr hilfreich sind:

    Custom Post Type UI

    Advanced Custom Fields

    Admin Columns

    Advanced Access Manager
