Monthly WordPress Meetup

The Line Up!

Presenter: Steve Rypka
Topic:  WP Basics
Review of the basic elements of WordPress: Pages vs. Posts, Categories vs. Tags. What exactly are they, how do they differ and how do they work? This will be a good lead in to Russell's presentation. We will use only small words.

Presenter: Russell Aaron
Topic: Custom Post Types and Other Big Words
Custom Post types, taxonomies and how to use them in your next project.

Presenter: Robert Gillmer
Topic: What makes Genesis different than "regular" themes
Explain the differences between regular themes and Genesis themes - how regular themes are built from a markup standpoint, while Genesis themes are built from a PHP programming standpoint. Review three case studies, showing the differences between the two types of themes. Finally, a look at the pros and cons of using Genesis.

Wrap Up: Steve Rypka
