Custom Layouts Without Using Page Templates Often, Themes use custom page templates to add layout options for static pages; but custom page templates are actually intended to be used for custom content, rather than for custom layouts. And by using custom page templates to define custom layouts, custom layouts are limited to static pages. Single blog posts don’t feel the love. This session will show you how to use custom post meta data and the body_class filter to define custom layouts for both static pages and single blog posts. As a bonus, this session will show you how to use custom post metaboxes, rather than forcing users to deal with custom fields.
Features a bonus presentation on the proper way to declare and use default values for Theme options.
