Bourn Creative is excited to announce that managing partner, Brian Bourn will be speaking at WordCamp San Diego 2016. He joins a stellar line up of 2016 Plugin Track Speakers, delivering a talk on Custom Data Management Made Easier — An Intro To Custom Fields.
Custom fields and custom meta boxes can empower site managers to easily create complex page layouts only possible with extensive HTML markup, without writing a single line of a code. As a designer or developer, custom fields and meta boxes not only empower clients to create these layouts and manage extra site data, but also give you the power to control the markup ensuring proper, semantic HTML, and prevent support issues for “broken” layouts resulting from HTML errors.
In this talk Brian will cover:
- What are custom fields & meta boxes and why you should use them
- Options for creating custom fields & meta boxes
- Design examples utilizing custom fields & code tips for integrating custom fields into a WordPress theme
