edUi Conference 2011

May 2nd, 2011 by Curtiss Grymala

In April 2011, the website for the 2011 edUi conference was unveiled. As with the previous year, the conference website was built using WordPress.

The theme was designed by Wren Lanier, acting as the designer for edUi. The WordPress theme was developed by Curtiss Grymala, who is a co-planner of the edUi conference. The theme is built using HTML5 and a little bit of CSS3; and is created to degrade gracefully in older browsers.

The edUi 2011 website features a custom plugin used to display the “Featured Speakers” and “Sponsors” information on the home page, six widget areas (some optional, some that only appear on the home page) and an expanded header for the home page with a more compact version for the interior pages. This website takes advantage of the custom post types, custom taxonomies and custom navigation menus that were introduced in WordPress 3.
