Title: How to make the UW Theme sing
Campus adoption of the UW Theme is strong. With good reason. The theme’s stylesheet supplies UW branding out of the box; its ACF page builder enables a wide range of styled content types. But perhaps in the variety lies the rub. Across the technical-savvy continuum, developers, designers and power content creators report uncertainty in what component to use where and when in order to best fulfill their communication purpose with their audience(s).
This session replaces that uncertainty with confidence. Learn methods for evaluating which component works best for different situations and how to use it most effectively. Learn how to make the UW Theme sing.
