WordPress Interactive

----PLEASE NOTE: DIFFERENT ROOM AT LAWRENCE TECH THAN PRIOR MEETINGS :) ----

Looking for WordPress tips? Got one to share?

February's meeting will be a voter's choice of quick tips! Deb Schmidt (one of the co-organizers) has a few WordPress tips for bloggers to get things started.

If you would like a chance to share YOUR tip (maybe dust off a short presentation you've already created), simply add a comment below or bring your idea to the meeting. In order to keep things moving, we may have a stopwatch running.

If you have a request, you can add that below as well and we'll see if a volunteer steps up to share their knowledge.

At the meeting, we will vote on which topic to discuss next and spend 10-15 minutes on it.

Below are topics that Deb is proposing:

• Setting up the WordPress custom menu

• How to add your avatar to blog posts

• Turn a category into a menu choice

• How & why to create a basic child theme

• Inside a premium theme - what is different? (ex. WooThemes / Thesis / Genesis)

What can YOU add? What question is slowing you down?

      Hi Eric, not sure we'll get into theme development from scratch today. Something we can do for a future meetup. You would have enjoyed Rebecca's talk last month. Check out the notes at: http://www.meetup.com...­

    Hey there I'm a newbie, I didn't know Metro Detroit had a wordpress group, super cool. I feel I can bring a lot of knowledge and insight to the table on Wordpress & SEO from experience. I'm looking forward to meeting and chatting with others who love wordpress as much as I do.
