...aaaaaand, we're back!
It's been a while since our last "proper" meetup, mainly down to venue difficulties, but I've managed to find a venue for June, so we're back on.
We're going to try something different this month. The floor is open to anyone wanting to give a 5 minute presentation.
The talk can be on any WordPress related topic. Some suggestions:
- Show and tell - a recent WordPress site or plugin you've built
- A plugin that you love
- A really useful WordPress function
- Great WordPress resources
- Anything else that you can think of!
Speakers get 5 minutes only. I'll try to find some kind of gong or buzzer to keep things moving!
Please email me at [masked] with your talk title.
Simple Usability Improvements for your WordPress Theme
by Graham Armfield
So you've got your WordPress site up and running and visitors are finding it through search engines. But are you giving them enough information about your site once they've arrived?
In this presentation I'd like to share some ideas for simple tweaks you can make to your theme that can help improve the usability of your site - specifically in the areas of search, blog pages, archive pages, 'landing' pages and 'read more' links. I'll be using some common (and less well-known) WordPress functions and array values, and also recommending a useful plugin for improving search results.
