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:
- More Fields plugin
- Winnipeg WordPress Meetup
- Plugin & Theme Security Video (by Mark Jaquith)
- WP security & escaping functions
- WP Data Validation
- FlexSlider (the JavsScript library powering the portfolio slideshow)
Great stuff Matt!!! Solid slides!
Thanks Peter. 🙂
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.
