Today, clients want to have more control over their WordPress installations. Their long-term goal is to acquire enough skills and resources to be able to manage their websites. WordPress developers understand these goals are sometimes a bit aspirational. However, as good partners, it is our job to configure WordPress towards that end. With that in mind, we will be looking at how to configure WordPress for both collaboration and scale. The session includes discussions, demos, and content related to the following topics: * Understanding the authentication, authorization, and accounting methods of WordPress. * Analyzing WordPress's default roles and capabilities * Creating roles that align with business requirements * Enforcing the "least amount of access required" policy About the Facilitator Jermain Allen is the founder of RTR Digital LLC, a company that specializes in assisting non-profits and small businesses in completing the digital transformation using open source platforms. Before starting his technology consulting business, Jermain was the top-rated technical trainer at the two largest consumer electronics companies in the world. He spent the majority of the last decade traveling the country, training third parties about the technologies that power many of today's most popular devices.
We may not be able to discuss both DESIGNING and BUILDING layouts in the same meetup. I'd like to focus this one on what you need to consider when designing a responsive WordPress site: both design principles that apply to any responsive site, and how to incorporate the different elements of a WordPress site. Here are some points I'd like us to cover: • What designers need to know about WordPress before quoting a WordPress project • Why mobile-first design will make your life easier • Card-based layouts and atomic design principles • Device (or layout)-specific content • Navigation • Hero images, background videos, and other design trends I definitely have my own opinions on this, but would love some input from those of you who are real designers. If you're interested in contributing, either email me or comment below.
Many companies and individuals (speakers and authors, for instance) would benefit from an online newsroom. Studies have shown that most online newsrooms are TERRIBLE. We'll cover elements of a good newsroom and how to use WordPress to create one.
