Membership websites with Hannah Smith

Hannah will talk through the joys and pains of her latest project - creating a membership site for a client. The aim of the talk is to provide an overview of the project and how it got achieved, rather than oodles of technical detail and code.

She'll cover:
• Some of the plugins used - WooCommerce, WooCommerce Memberships, BBPress and Advanced Custom Fields
• Customising the menus for logged in members
• The overall process of working with the co-founders - UX, design and project management
