Yesterday you saw Scott at Moodle Moot Australia; today let’s go further back in the archives! This is a “bootleg” video of my talk at WordCamp Sydney back in September 2014. My talk was titled “A Beginner’s Guide to Popping The Bonnet”, a guide for beginners to mod their WordPress site.
This video was taken by my friend Steve Cooper.
Again, it’s hard for me to watch, but wow, it was a fun talk!
Some of the material is irrelevant with WordPress 4.3, but I still stand by some of the material. Specifically, don’t be afraid to use your CSS skills to modify your child theme. It’s not the most efficient solution, but it’s a quick way to mod your site, especially if you’re just starting out. And I always love that trick of changing your site subtly using dates/times with just the tiniest bit of PHP.
