Grow Beyond Post & Pages: Introduction to the Pods Framework
Featured Speaker: Jim True
If you’ve been building WordPress websites for clients for any period of time, you’ll have stumbled across the need to create Event Management, Staff Directories, Franchise Location listings, Services Listing or a Gallery Portfolio for those clients. Your first impulse might be to go find a plugin for that, but what if you could use ONE plugin in all those situations and be able to control the display of your content so it works with your theme? The Pods Framework is your solution!
We will be showing how to Plan out your Data structures (content modeling), Build those structures in Pods, Populate them and Prototype the display of your data using Pods Templates in any theme. You will learn about:
• Custom Post Types & Taxonomies in WordPress
• Content Modeling and how it relates to your Content Strategy
• Display Custom Data in your Theme without Coding
Skill Level: Intermediate/Advanced/Developer
This talk will be “Intermediate to Advanced”. This talk is discussing taking WordPress beyond the normal everyday post & page management so if you’re not very comfortable working with WordPress, plugin management and theme development, the talk may be over your head.
