WordCamp 2013: Chip Bennett: Custom Layouts Without Using Page Templates

This session will show you how to use custom post meta data and the body_class filter to define custom layouts for both static pages and single blog posts. As a bonus, this will show you how to use custom post metaboxes, rather than forcing users to deal with custom fields.
