On March 28, 2015 I have the privilege of presenting at WordCamp San Diego on the topic of “Switching Themes Like a Boss.” This is my first time ever speaking at a WordCamp and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be sharing this talk with you in my own hometown!
This presentation covers what happens when you switch from one WordPress theme to another, the common problems that arise when switching themes, and how to troubleshoot these issues. I also go over what makes certain themes easier to switch and why others are more difficult to migrate away from.
As a bonus, everything is wrapped up in a motif from a cheesy 80s movie set in San Diego.
If there is one takeaway that I hope you gain from this talk, it’s that your theme should NOT contain any plugin-territory functionality if at all possible. While I realize this ideal isn’t always achievable, doing so will make your theme switching process more more “boss-like” and much less frustrating.
If you have any questions regarding this presentation feel free to post them in the comments below.
