The magic behind WordPress is how it processes queries and gives you the results via “The Loop.” The Loop can be hijacked for a variety of custom uses and these techniques can quickly expand the capacity of WordPress to present information in different ways. We’ll cover this, as well as PHP tips which help introspect WordPress during lower-level development.

  • nilsholmstrom Nils Holmström, Web-developer at First Flight Communication Agency AB @nomadone '.key' is the native format for Apples Keyonte. It's neither strange nor unaccessible, but i does require you to own the program in question. Unfortunatly there´s no free viewer for Windows, so i suggest to the presentation owner to offer the presentation in pdf instead. 3 years ago

  • nomadone nomadone Nice presso. I tried downloading it and just get a strange unaccessible 'key' file. I tried changing the file format into pdf and ppt and keep getting error messages.

    Any ideas on how to convert this file into a usable format?

    Thanks for giving us free access to this file!

  • byaparentdesign byaparentdesign Michael, I enjoyed the talk, however I wish it had stuck more to the loop and its variations, without plugins/shortcodes etc which just complicate the issue for anyone trying to use these ideas. I'm currently trying to create a featured post that the user can select the category, and I'm passing post id as variable back and forth. I've got it working except for pagination, and the filter option isn't going to help. 4 years ago
