The Atlanta WordPress Users Group Meetup is going to be held at 130 Krog at New Tricks Atlanta Headquarters on Wednesday, May 23 at 6:00 PM for the beginner session and 7:30 For the intermediate workshop. Note that this Meetup has moved to the fourth Wednesday of the month. There is a ten dollar charge for the meeting since we provide beverages and snacks for everyone.
This month, we are fortunate to have WordPress developer and trainer, Travis Smith presenting both sessions.
Travis is going to help the beginners with understanding the difference between posts and pages and then talk about Custom Post Types, Custom Fields, Custom Taxonomies, and Post Formats, oh My! Specifically we will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of using pages and posts and then when to use custom post types, custom taxonomies and post formats in their site.
The intermediate users will be get a workshop on the available custom post types plugins, and will show three plugins (Easy Custom Content Types [premium], Custom Post Type UI [free], WP Views/Types [premium]. Travis will show us how to create a custom post type, setup the various custom fields, & then finish with a custom single & archive template. There will be a multisite available to use and test while Travis is presenting.
He has also provided an incentive from Pippen, graciously donating 5 copies of Easy Custom Content Types and Post Type Column Editor each! And Amir of WP Types and Views has also donated 5 copies/memberships of WP Views! I will be giving these away during the Meetup!
If you sign up for one or the other you are welcome to come to the other session at no additional charge
With all of the interest and talent in our Atlanta WordPress Users’ group, we want to give others a chance to present, so please, don’t be shy. Let us know if you have a topic you’d like to hear more about or if your would like to do the presentation for an upcoming meeting.
So stay tuned, and keep in touch. I hope to see you Wednesday!
