Siddharth Ashok on “Customizing the WordPress Dashboard/Login for Clients”

Hey this is Siddharth Ashok, I work with a Swedish Web agency, aka Next Big Thing as a Front End and WordPress Developer.

Entrepreneur by heart, am also part of Companies like App La Carte Indy & Mungozone.

Have been working with WordPress for more then 8 years now. Mostly as a freelance WordPress Consultant and theme developer, and now at my agency where we use WordPress as CMS for most of our clients.

Love Open Source and try to contribute as much as I can back to the community.

What My Session would cover:

  • Discuss on the the way we deal with different contents when making CMS for clients on WordPress
  • Develop easy interface to manage the contents, with plugins as “Advanced Custom Fields” and “Custom Post Type UI”.
  • Branding the whole admin interface with custom logo’s, custom login pages, restrict access or hide the tabs which client doesn’t need to see in his login. Doing this with plugins as “white-label-cms” & “adminimize”.
  • I plan to give a demo. I would take WordCamp Mumbai 2014 site as test scenario and would explain my points in this context. Would code and demonstrate wherever necessary.

This talk would help the attendees the way they approach to use WordPress as CMS. Also making the Content Management Interface more branded, structural and clutter free for clients or end users.
