Advanced Custom Fields from a Designer's Perspective + more

UPDATED: 10 June 2013

It's our One Year Anniversary, come out to join the party!

Due to some last minute changes, Liam Dempsey will be talking through the Advanced Custom Fields Plugin from a Designer's Perspective. In January, Liam challenged the meetup group to take advantage of this powerful plugin. Now, he's back to see how far everyone got with it!

We'll follow our format of two short (5 minutes) presentations, followed by a single longer one (15-20 minutes). The longer presentation will serve as the basis for and introduction to a wider, open discussion among the group.

[6:30] Drinks + Networking

[7:00] Welcome + Introduction

[7:10] A Security Story -- presented by John Davey

[7:15] WordPress for User-generated Content -- presented by Corey Salzano

[7:20] Advanced Custom Fields from a Designer's Perspective -- presented by Liam Dempsey

[7:50] Open Questions + Requests for Help

[8:00] Return to Drinks + Networking

Please do invite people to join Phily 'burbs WordPress Meetup and to take part in Twitter conversations using #burbswp.

    This was a very informative explanation of a useful plugin. I'm glad we got to see this, as I wanted to see it at the Philly Meetup, but couldn't attend. Great job Liam!

    Lots of great info last night from presenters and attendees. I plan to incorporate Corey's ideas onto one of my "own" websites that gets traffic but has little content. Great seeing everyone again.

    I thought the presentations last night were really useful; thanks to all of the presenters. I do agree with Jonny; it's a bit difficult to hear the presentations at Sly Fox because of the noise from the outside dining rooms.

    Great presentations! As always, I took a lot away from the meeting and am excited to implement some of the new things I learned. Thanks!

    Codex information on Must Use Plugins - http://codex.wordpress.org/Must_Use_Plugins

      I was surprised to find out about this feature during Liam's presentation. It's also interesting to find out that a must-use plugin won't receive updates.

    Are tonight's presentations on SlideShare?

    The Advanced Custom Forms plugin looks like one we designers "need to know" and I'm glad I was there to get Liam's thorough overview. ACF does a lot to empower an enriched Wordpress build for clients and can be tweaked endlessly. Not for everyone as it requires strong html and css skills to integrate. Add entry level PHP skills on top and it can really do a lot. IMHO the SlyFox was just too loud for "un-amplified"* speakers but the space was nice and food was good. In that environment speakers really need to PROJECT.
    *Fault is in my old "loud rock impacted" ears.

      Agreed overall. I sat right in front of the presenters because I couldn't hear/see otherwise.

    Spent 45 minutes and got only a few miles with all the flooding and traffic -- it was just not meant to happen, so I turned back. See u next time!

    I'm glad to be able to catch this presentation. I wanted to go when it was presented in the Philly meetup, but was unable to make it. The reviews were great. Thanks Liam!

    Was really interested in the zurb foundation aspects, hopefully that will be in the future.

    • Liam D.

      Hi Matt - As I mentioned to Geoffrey (above) - we will work to reschedule the presentation. Apologies for the last minute change. It was unavoidable, I'm afraid.

      June 10, 2013

  • Geoffrey W.

    I also hope that a Zurb Foundation presentation will follow shortly. Happy anniversary!

    June 10, 2013

    • Liam D.

      Hi Geoffrey - we are working on that. It was not an intended change today. Sorry if we let you down.
