You've Found the Perfect WordPress Theme - Now What?

  • March 24, 2014 · 3:00 PM

Does this scene sound familiar? You see an amazing theme demo site, buy the theme, install it on your website, and realize that your site looks nothing like the demo. This is an all too common occurrence for many website owners, but fortunately there are steps we can take to fix this.

During the presentation, we'll cover:

• Resources for Importing Demo Content and adding your own

• Using the WordPress Theme Customization screen

• Configuring theme options

• What to know if your theme comes with custom post types

• Consulting the theme documentation

• Should you use a development site?

• Q&A

Not all themes are alike and this presentation looks to ease the process of installing a new theme on your new or existing website.


PLEASE NOTE THE NEW LOCATION AND TIME:

We're thankful for the HuB for donating their space this month.

The HuB, 1680 Fruitville Road, Sarasota

3-4:30pm

We'll have an informal meet & greet from 3-3:15, where we can catch up with other WordPress enthusiasts and beginners. The presentation will start at 3:15 with time for a Q&A afterwards.

This presentation is open to all levels of WordPress users. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
