Watch the rest of OC WordPress Developer Meetup for March 11 2013

Elizabeth Shilling dug deep into code and showed us how to modify and create new custom queries in The Loop, after watching Mitcho: Getting into The Loop on WordPress.tv.

Steve Zehngut went over his creation of Custom Post Types using the Custom Post Type UI Plugin and the Advanced Custom Fields Plugin to create a custom RSS Feed using the add_feed() function added to the functions.php file:

array('post','video'), // Custom post types
'category__and' => array(get_cat_id('test1')) // Categories to include

include_once( ABSPATH . 'wp-includes/feed-rss2.php' );

// You must re-save your permalink structure to make this active.


Jason Tucker covered his implementation of Advanced Custom Fields to create ad blocks, and Brandon Dove, core contributor and OC WordCamp Organizer, covered working with Git on WPEngine’s hosting environment. The rest of the presentations and notes may be found on the below page:
