Advanced Custom Fields – Flexible Content and other Cool Stuff

The talk I gave was developer focussed and looked at building themes using the popular ACF plugin and some possible suggestions of what you can do with it. I looked at building flexible columns to allow people to add or remove columns from a page layout, integrating with Google maps and some of the information about images you can now access.

To demonstrate, I created a test website using the TwentyTwelve theme. And, because there are a lot of code examples I have put all of my code up in Github:

Oh, and I edited a Nyan Cat .gif to fit the header area 🙂
