At Matt's "State of the Word" presentation at WordCamp San Francisco this year, he announced the results of 30,000 person survey about WordPress usage... only 6% of users use WordPress as a pure blogging system. That leaves 94% of users kicking WordPress up a notch... Piklist helps you do that.
In this presentation, we will demonstrate how you can build powerful Websites or even a Web Application with WordPress, using the Piklist framework (http://piklist.com/).
• Easily add fields to your Custom Post Type, Taxonomy, User Profile and Settings Pages.
• Build Widgets with just a little bit of code.
• Create your own Dashboard Widgets.
and so much more...
We'll walk through a Contact Management system built with Piklist and show you how you can easily customize it to your specific needs.
You'll also get a preview of the upcoming Piklist Fields Manager. Point... Click... Add a field. No coding required!
OPENING PRESENTATION: The Disqus Engine
Many publishers and site owners know Disqus as the standard bearer conversation tool that powers commenting for, well, a lot of websites. Far fewer are aware that Disqus is now a powerful engine enabling engagement beyond just the comment.
This presentation covers the various ways Disqus is building new, core products that transform the comment thread into a vehicle for connecting engaged visitors with new people, conversations, and content - even across communities.
