Strawberry Custom Fields Forever

Matt Banks will give a talk on leveraging the power of WordPress custom meta boxes and fields to better organize your site, make it easier to update content, and manage your data more efficiently. He will cover how to set everything up in code using native WordPress functions, plugins that will speed up the process, as well as ways to display all the data on your website. He will also touch on the new Metadata API being developed as a feature plugin in WordPress Core to see what's coming in the future.

    I wanted to post a quick tidbit about Custom Field Suite. As of version 2.3.0 (released yesterday) you can now group your fields into tabs, which _really_ helps when organizing field-heavy edit screens: http://i.imgur.com/N61KBiX.png

    I also submitted some UI updates that will be included in the next version which I really like a lot. I would love to hear if anyone has any wishlist items for Custom Field Suite if it's your jam, I'm kind of on a contribution kick and would love to roll in something you're looking for.

    Was really, really excited to make this but my father's requested help tonight. When the parents ask, the children don't question. Will be looking forward to notes afterwards. I'll stick around for a little while after my shift @ work ends just to verify that a video connector is available (and say hi).

      Actually just noticed the session starts at 7pm tonight and not 6:30, I can't stay that late. I'll let the security staff know that if needed, they can find it in my desk drawer.

    If anyone has any particular methods or plugins they'd like to see covered, let me know!

      I imagine ACF (http://www.advancedcu...­) would be a good plugin to hear about. I would like to hear about bainternet's My-Meta-Box class (https://github.com/bai...­). I am just learning to write my own classes, but look forward to creating my own class or at least function for adding meta boxes. I am super happy that the new Metadata API is on the agenda.
