In The Power of the Loop: Using Custom Post Types to Create a CMS based Portfolio Site, I will discuss the engine behind WordPress, the loop. My presentation will focus around practical uses for the loop with the use of custom post types. Some key topics will be: The difference between query_posts and WP_Query, adding calls for custom post type and custom taxonomy to the functions file, including helper text for users, adding additional image sizes and coding out a landing page, taxonomy page and single page to give the audience a complete portfolio site.
