After WP Install: What to do next

An Express walk through of what to do after having installed a web site. 

We will be looking at the sidebar areas, and how these relate to the web site. Things to look for when installing plugins and some of the plugins that I use. 

Paal Joachim has worked as a media teacher in a senior high school in Oslo. Teaching students Adobe software like Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator as well as WordPress. He also works as a freelance instructor and helps people create web sites. 3 years ago Paal took another look at WordPress and decided to go ahead and begin using it. He had earlier used Dreamweaver for web site creation. Paal has a passion for teaching and really enjoys seeing students as they progress from not knowing anything about WordPress to after a few hours training have the skill to create a simple web site. Paal hope's is to share some of his passion during his period here in Sarasota.

    Recap of yesterdays meetup:
    I came about 7-8 minutes late with a new projector from Best Buy which I might or might not keep. Got going and we talked about where people were at in relation to WordPress. So the evenings topic was totally changed in relation to you guys. Which was cool by me.
    I remember sharing information about MAMP and Desktop Server to create a local off line site. Then some info about the plugin Duplicator to pack up the site and download it and move it to another location.
    Showed the plugins Google Dashboard Analytics and Ninja Forms.
    Spoke about quick edit (and bulk edit).
    We talked about Genesis framework, looked briefly at the theme settings and functions.php file.
    A short look at the theme settings of theme.
    I talked about starter themes/bare bone themes.
    What else? Have a great day! Cool meeting you guys! I had fun!

    How should we use Monday evenings Meetup?
    I could run through the basics, quick edit for all pages/posts, finding good themes and plugins, and show some of the plugins that I use and why I use these.

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.
