WordPress Template Hierarchy

This is a must-attend for more novice WordPress designers and developers:

For anyone who wants to tweak a theme or construct one from scratch, understanding which template files display which data (all posts, a single post, pages, category listings, etc.) is crucial. We'll go over the main types of template files and, time permitting, delve into using custom post types.

PRESENTER: KARIN ARIKUSHI

    Thanks - was good to re-examine the overall structure. Would love to see more real-world examples of unique sites or challenges that needed to be overcome to get your WP site to be more than "just another WP blog".

    Also, I kind of hijacked the mic at the end of the presentation to mention some online learning resources for people in case they were interested. I have posted a lengthy thread in the discussions area with links and information if you're interested in something to keep you busy until the next time we meet

    Information was great. Couldn't hear asked questions at the back and some answers didn't make sense.

    • John S.

      We usually get started about 15 mins after the "start time", and it's usually done about an hour after that.
