Details

Many WordPress sites include portfolios. Let's talk about how to create, manage, and style portfolios in our sites and client sites. These could be portfolios to show off websites, photography, artwork, architectural projects, etc.

Speakers

Andrea Napierkows­ki will talk about the psychology of why people go to portfolio sites and the types of things people are looking for when they get to one. She'll cover figuring out what types of things to showcase, how much to showcase, and what visitors really care about.

Topher DeRosia will talk about the CMB2 plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/cmb2/).

Chad Warner will talk about using CPTs (custom post types) and the Advanced Custom Fields plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-custom-fields/).
