WordPress - Deciding Upon a Theme

This meetup will be a 20min review of last on SEO, then launch into how to decide which wordpress theme is best for you. With thousands available, it's easy to make a wrong choice here. I'll go through my own favorites suitable for both newcomers and the more experienced users.

      Hi Kevin, these url links no longer work. Can you please post new links?

      September 16, 2013

    • Kevin T.

      Wordpress.com took it offline for 24 hours since they didn't like some of the 'bad theme' links we added. Naturally.... It's all back up again now.

    August 16, 2013

      The X2 previous meetups were held at a central city location. This new venue is by much better

    Keen to meet WP Developers

    August 14, 2013

    • Kevin T.

      Hi Phil, most of our early attendees are users than developers, however the long term objective is to mimic what they do with the Melbourne WP meetup with occasional tech/advanced nights. Look forward to chatting next monday night.

    Have setup a new website for us all on the wordpress.com service. This uses the same core coding platform as developers use to make WordPress websites. Still lots to add and a theme to sort, but for now go to http://aucklandmeetup.wordpress.com
