RVA WordPress Wednesday Meetups

4th Wednesday of Every Month!

This group is for anyone who uses WordPress, whether you're a blogger, designer, developer, coder, themer, or anything else you can imagine.  Meetup events are open to both advanced and beginner users and are free!

This month, we have Matthew Rosenberg from the Richmond Times-Dispatch talking on Codex Decoded: Child Themes.

This is a moderately advanced class. We will be going under the hood of WordPress and looking at some code. I promise it isn't scary.

This month we are continuing the theme of learning how to modify WordPress safely. Child themes allow you to change small or large parts of your parent theme or framework. Making a child theme is very easy and we will go over why you want to do it, and how.

This is essential learning for anyone that wishes to work with WordPress on a deeper level.

On behalf of RVA WordPress, we look forward to seeing you on the 27th!

    I attended a great presentation on WP child themes by Doug Clark a couple months back. Will this one cover different topics?

      I'm not sure exactly what doug covered so I'm not sure. I imagine we will cover similar ground.

    This is very timely. I'm not a code ninja but I won't be intimidated!

      Don't have to be a code ninja. A basic child theme requires really no code at all.
