September will be structured differently and the groups will be split for the majority of the time.
Here is the agenda:
6:30 - Welcome and Tips and Tricks -- Carol
6:45 -- 2 Session Options
Beginners: Kyle Thiesen
Site Installation Walk-thru -- Kyle will lead the beginners group for the entire time and will take the group through a WP install during the session. He will explain the use of themes, plug-ins and widgets. This is a must-see for those who are new to WordPress and want to know how to install and begin their very first site.
Intermediate: Seth Carstens
Developing Your First Child Theme: The basics of getting your child theme setup and making some simple style and homepage changes. We will be installing the parent theme, creating the child theme, uploading logo's, setting colors of background and titles, and if the we get through all that I will demo how to insert a slideshow plugin into the homepage.
