    Claire Brotherton: Examining the Accessibility of Popular WordPress Page Builders

    WordCamp Glasgow 2020Speaker: Claire Brotherton

    April 21, 2020 — Page builders like Beaver Builder and Elementor are immensely popular because they let you create sophisticated layouts quickly and with minimal code knowledge. But are the web pages they produce accessible? I take both builders for a spin to see whether their templated content meets accessibility standards and what room there is for improvement.

  • Jeremy Scott: I Built a Site with a “Page Builder” Called Gutenberg

    Jeremy Scott: I Built a Site with a “Page Builder” Called Gutenberg

    WordCamp Phoenix 2019Speaker: Jeremy Scott

    March 8, 2019 — While large swaths of the WordPress community were protesting the arrival of Gutenberg with mixed feelings, I chose to embrace it early and often, but even late into its development, I felt unable to produce the same level of work my clients expected–so it was always back to the old ways: page builders and custom fields. In fall 2018, I finished a project that relied way heavily on custom fields; it was slow and its admin UI was confusing and it made like 150 custom fields per post, but it worked and looked great. After, though, I paused and I asked myself “am I sure I can’t do this with just Gutenberg?” So I set out to try. Spoiler alert: its possible, and I did it.

    In this presentation, I’ll show you the old way vs the new way, and explain how I needed to change the way I do and think about things to deliver an identical site while shucking the crutches of page builders and custom fields and custom templates that has propped up my work for so long.

    Gerald Glynn: Build a bespoke Page Builder

    WordCamp Dublin 2017Speaker: Gerald Glynn

    November 14, 2017 — Page Builders free WordPress from the constraints TinyMCE Editor. However, you don’t have much choice over what they render, and left in the wrong hands, designs can get messed up past the point of easy untangling! By piggy-backing on the Post Meta Data we can build feature-rich Page’s in a bespoke manner with full control of the end product.

    This talk will walk you through how to build an in-house Page Builder that fits your particular needs using Advanced Custom Fields. By deconstructing a Page into its constituent parts, we can render the frontend in a very flexible manner so you and redesign as necessary and future-proof your content. With the addition of Bootstrap or Zurb Foundation, a fully responsive design can be easily achieved.
