Very likely, once you get setting The Conference Plugin up on your website, you’re going to want to do some customization work. Things like adding extra fields to the Speakers or Sessions, or changing the layout of the schedule or speaker pages.
This sort of work is done by creating a custom add-on plugin that uses the hooks provided within The Conference Plugin to make these changes without having to touch the original source code. Leaving the source code untouched is highly recommended, if only for the fact that your changes won’t get clobbered the next time an update to The Conference Plugin is released.
An add-on plugin is written in PHP, so you’ll need to be at least a little comfortable working in PHP. If you aren’t, and you don’t have someone on your team who can do that work, please contact us for a customization work quote. We’ve done all sorts of customizations already and are a big fan of code reuse, so it’s quite likely what you’re looking for can be done in quick time and low cost.
To get you started, please download the Custom Plugin Sample plugin. Install it and take a read through the source code.
