    Dougal Campbell: Get Off My Lawn and Out of My Dashboard!

    WordCamp Raleigh 2016Speaker: Dougal Campbell

    November 7, 2016 — My wife recently launched a new WordPress Multisite network for the Cherokee County School District in Georgia, which encompasses 40+ schools and serves more than 41,000 K-12 students. For some of the deeper coding, she enlisted my aid to help bend WordPress Multisite to her will.

    From adding custom BootStrap CSS column classes to nav menu items, to automagically including a custom stylesheet for each school site, to denying content editor access to specific parts of the dashboard, these and several other code snippets will be covered.

    Featured code snippet: the “redirect_naughty_children()” function. Get out of my Dashboard, you darn kids!

    In this talk, Thorsten provides a short introduction to both MultilingualPress and WordPress multisite. By means of several user stories, he then explains how to set up your multilingual WordPress website with MultilingualPress.
