CPT – Speakers

Description

This plugin creates a custom post type for event speakers. Includes speakers page and single-speakers page templates.

If you are upgrading from an earlier version, you will need to manually move the template_speakers.php and single-speakers.php files from the /wp-content/plugins/cpt-speakers/ folder in to the folder for your active theme. If the file already exists in your theme folder, overwrite it with the new one.

Installation

  1. Upload the cpt-speakers folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Two template files will be added to your current theme folder
  4. Create a new page and select the Speakers Page template
  5. Add your speakers from the WordPress dashboard
  6. (optional) Add speaker snippets (via shortcode) to your schedule page (example).
    Shortcode format: [speaker_snippet id=”3″] “3” would be the ID for the speaker you want to display
  7. Add custom CSS to your theme’s style sheet to format the speaker’s page. You can use this as a base and tweak as needed:

FAQ

Why am I getting a page not found error when trying to visit the single speaker’s page?

The Permalinks page needs to be re-saved. Go to Settings -> Permalinks and click the Save Changes button.
