Building EE Sites with Structure featuring Kristen Grote

Learn how to integrate the Structure module into an ExpressionEngine site. Kristen will go over basic concepts, best practices, and helpful tips & tricks. What you'll learn:

  • Why use Structure?
  • Difference between a Structure-managed page and a native, template-based page.
  • Using "listings" for large channel groups like blogs and news.
  • Using "assets" for non-page content, like sidebar touts & notifications.
  • Useful tags & techniques for your templates.
  • Dealing with category & archive listings.

Hope to see you there!

    Hey folks – I am out with a relatively bad cold today so I will spare you the plague by not joining in what I'm sure will be a good presentation from Kristen. Chances are you won't need me or a stand-in organizer, so have fun and please be sure to wrap up and head out by 9pm.

    Enjoy!

    Hi I'm new to EE. Just took on a new client who uses it (and whose current site uses Structure). Excited to get my learn on!

      Hey Kristin! Structure can be a little mind-bending if you don't already have a firm grasp of EE basics. So if you haven't already, I recommend taking some starter EE tutorials (I like mijingo.com) to get familiar with the territory.

      Thanks, will do. I have done a bunch of reading on it already and have combed through their site, but I could definitely use more.

    Hey Kristin, Welcome to the group! I'm sure you'll get plenty out of this meetup and hope to see you at plenty more. :)

    This is all set in stone for March!

    Sorry guys - this shouldn't have been scheduled. There's something else in the works, plus I haven't talked to Tim yet regarding scheduling meetups this year. I've moved the date/time to March for the time being as a time is required, but consider it TBD for now.

    Hi Kristen. I look forward to the presentation. Did you know that Copious has moved? We are now downtown 411 SW 6th Avenue. That is on the corner of 6th and Stark in the Commonwealth building.

      I did not! I just chose "COPIOUS" from the picklist. I'm trusting Angie to sort out the specifics as organizer.

    I am really looking forward to this one. I've only built one EE site and it did not use Structure. Looking forward to learning more.

    I'm hoping to have enough time to do this for our October meetup. I'm a perfectionist so it takes me 10x as long to make a presentation as everybody else!
