๐Ÿ’ฌ Considering Our WordPress Development Patterns

Replied to Considering Our WordPress Development Patterns by Tom Woodward (bionicteaching.com)

I believe weโ€™ve developed a pretty solid pattern for making WordPress do what faculty want and making that happen pretty quickly. We have high goals in terms of taking on additional challenging work while also supporting a lot of things and a lot of people so weโ€™ve had to be fairly pragmatic in terms of workflow.

There are three types of development we tend to do. Iโ€™ll list them below in terms of escalating complexity/time. Iโ€™ll explain what plugins and patterns we use to make this work. I know Iโ€™ve hashed through this plenty of times before in individual explanations but felt that putting in together in one place might help people, myself included, see the big picture.

Thank you Tom for sharing your various strategies and workflows. I like the look of the Display Posts and Page List plugins. I am also rethinking my CCS changes. I have always put them in a child theme, however I am thinking that placing them in the customiser or even a seperate plugin would provide more portability if I were to change themes.
