A lot of people have been asking how to do some basic things with wordpress.

What we will cover is mostly for beginners.

We will cover the following:

 

  • How to upload themes and plugins
  • How to activate themes and plugins
  • How to post a blog post
  • How to upload pictures
  • Suggested Free Plugins to use
  • Suggested Paid Plugins
  • Suggested Themes
  • Any Questions you may have

We will not cover Installation.

 

I am charging $5.00 to cover minor expenses and to stop the no shows.

Drinks and cookies will be provided.

    I liked Portia's comment ----> I, too, need a step by step and list of plug-ins... I had a hard time writing it all down...
    Thanks again for a wonderful class!

    Why don't you do another WordPress at Simon's house, this time for more advanced people? And I wouldn't mind it being reviews of people's blogs, recommending plug ins and fixes. We can all learn from each other.

    Will you have another event for beginners?
    Thanks

      Hi - we're working on putting another 101 meeting together now. So we place this at a more ideal location - are you north or south of the 56?

    Thanks Simon & Luke! Picked up some very interesting tips on tools & techniques. Simon goes FAST!

    Liked the recommendations on plug-ins... Would like to have covered one topic in more detail, rather than skipping around. Such as a whole meetup on plugins, or a whole meetup on themes, etc.

    These guys are really great at giving a class. I learned something, which is good! It would be helpful to have a link to a step-by-step of what was in the class, as well as a list of all the names of various plug-ins, urls, etc., that we could later refer to. Taking notes is good, but often I miss writing things. Great job Simon and Luke.

    You need to bring your own laptop.

    Simon I thought you had some laptops we could use. Did I misunderstand? Do I need to bring one?

    July 19, 2012

  • Simon

    We will take 1:30 -2 hours

    Please bring your laptops and your login/password to your wordpress sites

  • Leslie R.

    Can I bring my computer to follow along? Would that work?

    July 19, 2012

  • Simon

    Tried that before, but traffic is bad for many.
    Also I have other things going on earlier in the day.
