Two talks looking into some tips and tricks on how to use a WordPress loop on your site and utilising custom post types and custom fields.

Having looked at tools for use with WordPress the past few weeks we are returning to WordPress itself this month and showing you how to do stuff to start making your site do more for you.

Creating a client friendly newsletter template with Advanced Custom Fields
Using Elliot Condon’s Advanced Custom Fields set of plugins I regularly create for my clients user friendly newsletter templates that allow them to make layout selections, populate the template with text and images without creating a dogs dinner that offends the eye. This presentation will take you through the process of the latest one I am working on for a London charity.
- Level: Intermediate - basic knowledge of PHP and CSS.


We will be in the pub (in the function room upstairs) from 18:30 and look to start the first talk around 19:00. There will be a break in between the talks and afterwards we will head down to the main pub for a drink and chat with anyone who fancies it.

This is a friendly group so if you have any questions on WordPress there is most likely someone who can help, so get chatting :)

We are always on the lookout for Speakers and any ideas people have - so please get in touch if you would like to do a talk, or have an idea for a talk.
