Here’s the slides from my presentation at WordCamp NYC.
I cover WordPress featured images in the presentation mainly from a user standpoint and not from a developer’s standpoint, though I include some tips and suggestions for users curious about experimenting with code at the end.
Covered in the presentation are:
- what are featured images
- the evolution of featured images in WordPress Codex
- some popular & free magazine themes for WordPress
- how to use featured images in WordPress without changing your base theme via plugins (sidebars, archives, related/random/recent posts)
- how to start experimenting with the Featured Images code, online and through a local installation of WordPress.
I’d love to hear your feedback! The video of the presentation will be made available online at a later date, and I’ll link to that when it is available.
