  • Bill Gilmore: Building Better Themes

    Bill Gilmore: Building Better Themes

    WordCamp Belfast 2018Speaker: Bill Gilmore

    April 17, 2019 — In my talk I will cover a wide range of interesting WordPress API features. We will start with the basics like pulling dynamic content from pages and posts, moving onto using featured images and custom fields to a build a reusable banner as a chunk of php to call into our theme templates.

    If any of that sounded worrying please remember I am not a PHP developer, WordPress just makes life easy for all of us if you know to to use it. We will also cover topics to give your end user move control like custom shortcodes, widgets areas, menus and author bios.

    We will then dig into creating custom post types and advanced custom fields, all made easy with Toolset Types plugin. Then we will focus on how to pull post types into templates using wp-query.

    Finally we will look at WordPress customise features giving your end user control over all the content we have built so far as well as the colours, logo image and style of the site. This will wrap up into a dynamic theme with a user friendly interface… and there might even be some free DLC resources I have been working on.

    Please remember I’m going to keep this talk in a language and terminology that everyone can understand, I am not a backend PHP robot, I’m an experienced developer and trainer. Hope you see you there WP Devs!

  • Andy Staple: Themes - How to Choose What’s Best for You

    Andy Staple: Themes – How to Choose What’s Best for You

    WordCamp Rochester 2017Speaker: Andy Staple

    December 1, 2017 — Throughout my years organizing the Buffalo WordPress Meetup, the most common issues are related to poor choices in themes, or not understanding what elements are meant to change when looking to download or purchase themes. I will give an overview of theme choices, styles, what to look for and what options you have for customization on your own, or with help from a professional. Many themes boast powerful editing options, and have options lists longer than a luxury sports car. It is about filtering through the noise to find the information that matters most.
