    Speaker: Aaron Reimann

    I'll be demonstrating how to build a system using existing plugins.  This will include custom posts, categories and tags and front end posting.

    For example, I will be creating a "Members" directory with the following custom posts: Members, departments and positions.  When a Member is created, there will be a dropdown for the member putting them in a Department and Position.  In addition, I will show how to allow Members to be added on the front end.

    You will be able to take this example and create a HOA system, list of Lawyers with associations, etc.

    Micah Wood of WP Scholar is returning to walk us through some ideas on Theme Modification.

    The look and feel of your website should be a reflection of you, or your company's, personality. WordPress allows you to customize the look and feel of your site with themes, but off-the-shelf themes aren't really unique if hundreds of other websites use them. So naturally, site owners want to customize WordPress themes to fit their unique needs.

    Theme modification is a doorway which leads WordPress users down the path towards WordPress development. If you find yourself considering theme modification, just realize that you will need to learn some of the basics of web development.  However, if you are up for the challenge, join us as we introduce the most basic concepts of front-end web development and show you how you can use this understanding to start customizing your WordPress theme today!
