WordPress 101 (Introduction to WordPress)

Come learn about WordPress!

Wordpress is perhaps the easiest-to-use CMS ("Content Management System"). The whole point of a CMS (Content Management System) is that virtually anybody -- even a person with absolutely no knowledge of programming or web-design whatsoever -- can almost immediately start creating his or her own website. Wordpress also allows the user to easily change the content of the website, as the user's thoughts and ideas grow and change, over time; so, there's no need to consult a computer professional, every time that a change, to the website, is desired. This not only saves thousands of dollars, which would otherwise need to be paid to professional programmers, but it also serves to leave the user/owner/administrator firmly in the "driver's seat" at all times.

    would love to meet everyone - but saturday night is just not a good night! Any chance you will have future meetings during the week?

    March 21, 2013

    • Claudia W.

      Hello Marianne! Yes; we certainly will have future meetups on week nights, since several people have made such a request.

      March 24, 2013

    • Marianne G.

      great - I'll get them on my calendar as soon as I see dates. I know a few others that said they would also be interested if held on a week night.

    Hello everyone, I've actually been a contributor to several sites with the WordPress (in the admin area), but I am looking to build my own site and figured it would be good to network. I'm currently subscribing to Lynda.com for WordPress training, but having face-to-face guidance is something that should be valued. Hope to come tonight.

    Is there a need to bring a computer? How is parking in the area?

    March 8, 2013

    • Claudia W.

      No; you do not absolutely need to bring a computer; but we do have WiFi and it will probably be helpful to you if you do bring a computer, if you can. We have plenty of parking.

    I'm new to this whole thing...other than a computer should I be bringing anything?

    Sounds like this may be for people who are totally new to WordPress?

    March 7, 2013

    • Claudia W.

      Yes; that's right. This is a Basic Introduction seminar
