This evening I spoke at the WordPress London Meetup about how we, at Highrise Digital transitioned to a block-based editor in WordPress before the launch of Gutenberg in WordPress version 5.0.
Over the course of many WordPress site builds, I found a constant problem when dealing with custom post types: I wanted to add meta data to a post type like you do a post. In this talk I gave a brief overview of why he needed to be able to do this and how he went about it, building a plugin to provide this functionality.
Having only been to London a few times in my entire life it was nice to be invited down and I decided to make it an overnight stay, to ease the journey pain!
The meet up was great with some really good WordPress folks taking part. My slides for my presentation titled Local to Staging to Live – Using Version Control and Deployment Tools are below:
