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!

You may write comments in Markdown. This makes code easy to post, as you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences (```) with double new lines before and after.

Code of Conduct

Absolutely anyone is welcome to submit a comment here. But not all comments will be posted. Think of it like writing a letter to the editor. All submitted comments will be read, but not all published. Published comments will be on-topic, helpful, and further the discussion or debate.
