    • If we have time, we will touch upon how to make basic changes to colors, fonts, spacing, and other design elements after you have chosen a theme to work with.
    Questions – “You ask…” What are you trying to achieve? Group will share their favorite solutions for your problem

    Monthly tip
    Theme tip – In order to pick a good theme you need to qualify exactly what kind of content you are going to need for you or your client. Will they need different layouts for pages, sidebars different on every page, will they want more than one slideshow, what about shortcodes for columns and fonts, think about a themes functionality before you get sucked into just another pretty theme. Don’t forget responsive design!

    $3.00 Donation requested to cover Meetup Costs - thanks.

    Exactly what I've been contemplating: how to evaluate whether a new theme might be a good way to update my site. I'm not a developer, just have a site for my biz (professional organizing) and my master's thesis (caregiving for elders) that are both looking a bit "tired."
