Designing a Client-Focused WordPress Site


This past weekend, we held WordCamp Edmonton. It was the first time it came through our wintry city, and it went off swimmingly! On top of organizing it, I also spoke on a couple of subjects near and dear to my heart. One of these presentations was titled Designing a Client-Focused WordPress Site.

Designing Client-Focused WordPress Sites

Feedback for the presentation was positive, so I thought it might be worthwhile to share the slides on this here blog. In the presentation below, I cover the following…

  • What I mean by “client-focused WordPress sites”
  • Why we should make them, and
  • How to start – tips, tricks, and specific areas.

The main part you’re likely interested in is the “How”. In that section, I talk about customizing the Visual Editor CSS, adding a “Styles” drop-down to tinyMCE, and how to handle advanced page layouts (amongst other things). Feel free to check out the slides below, and if you have any questions, fire away in the comments. Thanks!
