WordPress has transitioned from being blogging software into being software that can be used to power just about any type of website from ecommerce to classified ad, membership and everything in between. In the past, finding and customizing a plugin and/or writing custom plugins would be required to add in the extra features.

However, WordPress Toolset makes this easier by offering plugins that work together to let you quickly create custom web applications. In this presentation we'll cover:

• An overview of WordPress Toolset

• Using their Types plugin to create custom post types for an application

• Using their Views plugin to use HTML and shortcodes to customize how the custom post type data is shown on the front of the site

• Using their Layouts plugin to perform drag and drop editing of Bootstrap based themes

• Using their Access plugin to limit access to content based on user role so different content can be shown to logged in users than website visitors (for example)

• Using their CRED plugin to allow website users to create WordPress posts of a specified custom post type right from the front of the website

• How all of these plugins work together to make creating a web application quick and easy

Watch as a web application is created from start to finish demonstrating the use of these plugins and how they work together.
