Buffalo WordPress Users/Bloggers Meetup

This Monthly Meetup is generally targeted towards users who are using WordPress (or looking to learn about it) for Blogging and Content Management.

Discussion about Blogging with WordPress, Using WordPress on your own sites, easy security tips, what to look for in themes and plugins when installing them, and much more. General topics will be focused more on content and basic information about plugins and themes.

If you're using WordPress to power your blog, business site, or just want to learn more about it, then this is the meetup you'll want to attend. You may still see some short bits of code during talks or questions, but stick with us and we'll promise you wont drown. You can always give both this and the design/dev meetup a shot and see where you feel more comfortable (or attend both each month).

For more advanced discussion in theme design, plugin development and other more advanced topics, check out the other meetups running fortnight to these ones named "Design/Dev".

    Sounds like a plan Ben!
    Maybe we can set aside one meeting a quarter on starting with WordPress.org? Starting with a host, install, adding a COTS theme, little about db, then a post w/pics? If we set aside the dates can share w/other meetups/groups.

    Question - should we bring our own laptops or does the Canisius have some to use in the room we will meet it? Forgive me, this is my first time attending your group and I need beginner help w my WordPress site. Thanks.

      Hi Sjunseeargn! So glad you can come. You don't need a laptop; you can use the computer connected to the projector to show us what you need help with.

      Not sure I'll be able to make it or not. Sara is Due on Saturday so depending how she feels I may be able to make it. If not feel free to start planning. We can at least get some Volunteers signed up to help out.

      The meetings go until 9pm so depending how close you are you could still catch a good portion of them.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
