Further Exploration Into WordPress --A Tutorial

This is a cross promotion for our friends in the Chicago and Suburban Area Freelance & Graphic Design Group:

Previously, we had jumped into the world of WordPress to learn about the basics of creating a portfolio site to showcase your work. After the event, there was a considerable thirst for more information and knowledge in the world of WordPress from many of you who attended the event.


We are fortunate to be able to bring in Ken Wiesner of KRW Solutions, Inc., to bring us further knowledge in the world of WordPress. WordPress is the go-to platform for today’s website development. In this MeetUp, we will learn the essential concepts of a content management system. Participants will explore WordPress, the most popular and user-friendly CMS currently available.


Discover the basic skills needed to create a WordPress site, create pages, and implement a blog. We’ll also take new skills to the next level by learning the diverse extensibility of the platform through WordPress plug-ins. A world of WordPress knowledge is only a few clicks away.

As with all of our events, there will be plenty of time for networking and relationship building, and snacks and beverages will be provided, courtesy of PsPrint .

    Hello! Glad to see there's a WordPress group out in the suburbs. I've actually worked inside WordPress sites, but more of a project manager and strategist, not as a designer or programmer. I really hope to have some recommendations on a good WordPress theme for a starter professional portfolio site, and then to my personal brand.
