WordPress Portfolio Presentation

As promised, here’s the follow-up infor­ma­tion on my Power Your Port­fo­lio With Word­Press pre­sen­ta­tion that I gave at New Media Man­i­toba yes­ter­day. I’m grate­ful that they gave me a chance to present, and dou­bly grate­ful that so many peo­ple came out on a hot sum­mer night to hear me ram­ble about nerdy Word­Press things.

Firstly, you can grab the theme on GitHub. I’d prob­a­bly even sub­mit it to the offi­cial WordPress.org themes direc­tory, except that it still doesn’t list child themes (it likely will in the future).

Sec­ondly, you can grab the slides on Speaker Deck (or view below). And, if you’re inter­ested in watch­ing me present, there’s the archived livestream video.

Finally, here’s a few use­ful links from my pre­sen­ta­tion, and a few oth­ers for folks who want to go deeper:

    Thanks for this Matt. Fun and edu­ca­tional!
    I have a quick ques­tion: I am able to change the post type name but when­ever I try to change the pre­fix from sd I get and invalid post type name error. Are there para­me­ters I’m miss­ing? Wor­press Codex doesn’t have much to say on it that I can find.

    @Don Odd. You should def­i­nitely be able to change it. You shouldn’t use the built-in ones, but oth­er­wise it should work. The sd_portfolio post_type does get ref­er­enced in more than one place — it might have some­thing to do with that?

    Thanks, Matt I’ll give it another go — I may have missed one.
