We can really extend the "CMS" abilities of WordPress with just a couple of plugins: Advanced Custom Fields and Custom Post Types UI.

With these installed, we can create brand new content types that make more sense for the sites we work on. No sense being stuck with "Posts" and "Pages". On Jeff's site, we could really use "Events" and "Homepage Slides" - and give those types the fields that make sense.

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

We have a pretty good* newsletter.
