In my talk at WordCamp Antwerp 2018, I tried to summarize the benefits of using the Customizer for users as well as for designers and developers. To do this, I built a presentation in the Customizer.
In this post I am showing you how you can build a presentation using the presentation theme I created.
I found WordPress in 2013. I have created my profile page on February 4, just about 5 years ago. I was new to web design and very happy to be able to use open source WordPress and start creating websites.
I was very much into web design and development, and I still am. The excitement of learning something new was great. Greater than the thought of never being able to really master it. Nowadays, I am more aware of my preferences, but also my shortcomings. I can learn more focused. But I know that I am lacking time go as fast as I would want to. But that’s the reason that…
I am very proud, happy and honoured to be speaking at WordCamp Antwerp on March 3, 2018.
My talk is about the WordPress Customizer and how users and designers/developers can benefit from it. I will try to show the possibilities for creating a customizable website. It’s a lightning talk, so it will be short and focused. Well, it should be, so I better go practicing. 🙂
Hope to see you there!
Update: You can watch my presentation here. 🙂
I love the WordPress admin. It is WordPress’ backend, the place where you can take a glance and tweak your site’s content:
- The dashboard is clearly designed and allows you to see the most important recent changes, the amounts of posts, comments and so on.
- The list tables containing your blog posts, pages and whatever custom content (portfolio, products, testimonials, …) you have is fairly uncluttered.
- The admin allows us to manage users and plugins in a relatively easy way.
- It makes possible to manage navigation menus, widgets and global site data, although I prefer to do a lot of this in the Customizer.
The admin is WordPress’ strength when compared to other well-known content managements systems. But the admin is WordPress’ weakness when compared to modern website creation tools.Continue reading “The WordPress admin: WP’s strength and weakness”
