  • Word press 3 @ wordcamp

    1. 1. WordPress 3 @ WordCamp Vancouver It’s not all that scary different
    2. 2. What Isn't New This is an evolutionary update, not revolutionary Dashboard Admin screens the same Image editor Custom Post Types & Custom Taxonomies (they are just better now) When you update to 3.0...things will work the same, but improved
    3. 3. What Is New WP and WPMU merged WordPress Menus for themes (and sidebar widgets!) Custom header & custom backgrounds are built into core so themes can tap into them more easily Front-end access to Custom Post Types and Custom Taxonomies New template files: authors, front page, custom post types, taxonomies Importers are installed only if you need them Easier bulk updating of plugins and themes New theme: Twenty Ten
    4. 4. WordPress Menus Based on code from Woo Themes Very, very easy drag-and-drop editing menus Mix Pages, Categories, & static links together—including parent-child menus! More themes will support it post-launch of 3.0 Even if your theme doesn't support Menus you can use them as sidebar widgets!
    5. 5. Twenty Ten New default theme Intended that there will be a new default every year Uses: Custom header Custom background Menus Designed to be a parent theme It’s a solid, basic theme
    6. 6. Custom Taxonomies & Custom Post Types Both were introduced in previous versions Now they have more useful applications and interfaces within WordPress Recommendation: Wait for themes and plugins to help you use them.
    7. 7. Multisite Mode Not turned on by magic Not made easier, just one codebase Still essentially WordPress MU, so still not for the code-shy Have to edit wp-config.php to allow multisite to be turned on Add define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true); to wp-config.php to reveal the menu option under tools
    8. 8. KUBRICK
    9. 9. KUBRICK TWENTY TEN
    10. 10. KUBRICK TWENTY TEN DOT FIVE TWENTY TEN
    11. 11. Twenty Ten Parent-child Theme Demo You start with Twenty Ten Create a new style sheet And you have a new child theme!
    12. 12. Twenty Ten Parent-child Theme Demo You start with Twenty Ten Create a new style sheet And you have a new child theme!
    13. 13. Twenty Ten Parent-child Theme Demo You start with Twenty Ten Create a new style sheet And you have a new child theme!
