WCSF: Notes From WordCamp 2012

Post “State of the Word” @WordCamp 2011


Well, this is long overdue but I finally cleaned up my notes from WordCamp.

Adding custom content types: I’ve always been on the lookout for a Drupal-like “views” module for WordPress. These tools come close:

Other fun things I learned about

  • SASS for CSS
  • REM not em for best responsive CSS
  • S2member for member and paid level management
  • Hellobar: a simple idea: use the top 30 pixels of yoru site for eye-catching messages. Hellobar includes A/B testing and it’s own analytics so it might be worth paying for on a ongoing basis. Other similar solution like Foobar are just a plugin with no extra fees. (let me know if you have a free version you use)
  • SlideDeck:  Slider & Gallery Plugin that gives a powerful UI and lots of sources and skins for building sliders
  • Flare social sharing bar
  • HappyTables: free restaurant website-building tool – developed around a customized version of WordPress

Chatting with Matt about new WordPress usage stats.
