What to watch for:

  • Using the Custom Post Type UI plugin to create a new Video Posts custom post type
  • Using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin to create custom fields for the Video Posts post type
  • Creating an Oxygen template to display single posts for the Video Posts post type
  • Dynamically displaying a video in the single post (Dynamic Data > Advanced > PHP Function Return Value)

What to watch for:

  • Adding an alert banner at the top of the page using a Link Wrapper with Text elements
  • Changing background color on hover with a smooth transition
  • Changing the logo image opacity on hover
  • Building a header from scratch (no Header Builder element)
  • Making the menu expand to take up available space (Advanced > Flexbox Child Controls > Flex Grow = 1)
  • Separating several menu items horizontally, using custom CSS in a Code Block (margin-left: auto)
  • Chrome inspector tips (testing element targeting and styles, un-minifying CSS to view it more easily, searching for code in the CSS)
  • Adding a perspective image with custom CSS
  • Responsive menu adjustments and troubleshooting
  • Compare Sridhar’s process with an approach using Beaver Builder

Video #6: Airtable's homepage Tabs in WordPress using Oxygen

What to watch for:

  • Using a Tabs element to create a vertical navigation for displaying different images
  • Deep customization of a Tabs element and layout with Flexbox controls
  • Pausing JavaScript in Chrome inspector (F8) to inspect CSS on the original page (when animation makes it difficult to target images)
  • Adding advanced effects to all images inside tab contents, using a Code Block with custom CSS
  • Adjusting responsive layout for different breakpoints (rearranging elements through vertical/horizontal stacking, alignment, order, and wrap of elements)
  • Compare Sridhar’s process with an approach using Beaver Builder
