Since Custom Post Types and Custom Fields find a much easier way to be integrated in various pagebuilders, tools seem to grow around this playing field. To avoid this to be blurry in any way, a good and maintained overview might help making the right choices.
Davinder Singh Kainth invited me for an in-depth interview about business model choices, technology and more. We talked over more than an hour. I hope there are some suggestions, which could be of any value to you. Take a nice seat and relax for the next hour. Enjoy!
There was a time that websites had a few pages and mainly attracted people by the blogposts a website owner/author offered. Those days passed away. Short term news moved away to social media. Websites are either just a ‘hello, here I am sign’, or they are very dedicated in handling business processes. Where does WordPress go? And where does that leave us?
As things are getting more mature around (relational) database publishing within WordPress, various developers approach things differently to get things done. We are just starting to play with a couple of interesting tools, which might be useful for you. With ACF or Pods and some additional tools. The number of possible combinations are growing.
It was fun again talking with David to ‘strip down’ one of my Beaver Themer and Pods based websites. Although the talk took nearly an hour, we could not cover all aspects of the used ‘tricks’ in building this site for an event organizer in The Netherlands.
People love the back-end UI/UX of the Advanced Custom Fields plug-in. All fields can be positioned and CSS assigned individually. Pods is in its base foundation a bit straight forward. But a little improvements can be achieved bij the use of the action hook ‘pods_group_add’.
In the Beaver Builder Knowledge base there is a little but powerful routine which makes it possible to show or hide a row or a module based on the content of a field connector. That is the base of the power of conditional database publishing within WordPress. Website strip-down of orange-exhibition management.
It has been a great year of excitements in all aspects of the ‘Beaver Building’ playing field. For sure the arrival of Beaver Builder 2.0 will end this year of great new stuff, speed and features. Combined with Beaver Themer, nobody could ask for more. Right?
