What we're about

People who use WordPress for Web Site Development, WordPress for their business or personal use, People new to WordPress, WordPress beginners and novices to WordPress advanced and experts. The initial goals are opportunities to get help with WordPress, share applications, show and tell your WordPress site(s). A future goal is to have a Lexington Word Camp. Another goal is to bring freelancers, developers and users together to learn from each other.

I have just put up a web site in WordPress for the group - Kentucky Word Press Geeks (http://kywpgeeks.com/) - I am finding that the MeetUp site is not so good for people to communicate with each other.

Central Kentucky WordPress

Beaumont Library

Back at Beaumont for this meetup only ... It is important to RSVP in that this branch gets upset if there are more than 12 people. Feb and March meetups are scheduled for the last Monday and will be back at Eastside This month an overview of WordCamp US and a presentation on updating to 5.0 with the new Gutenberg Editor ---- what to you need to know and do with your posts and pages when updating to Gutenberg. Also how to update to 5.0 and keep the classic editor so your posts and pages will not be affected. The Monday night meetups have a presentation and are fairly structured. The Monday night meetups are mostly about WordPress which you have on your hosted server. ( people with a free blogging site on WordPress dot com may not find the Monday night meetups useful) If you want to look at specific challenges and problems on your site that is what the Thursday night (2nd Thursday at Third St. Stuff) "Happiness Bar" meetups are for. WordPress dot com users are welcome to the Happiness Bar meetups as well as WordPress dot org (hosted on your server) We have a slack channel set up as a place to ask questions, get help, add comments and in general communicate on line. Slack is free - there are PC, IOS and Android Apps - plus you can get there one your browser. click on the link below to go to and join our Slack group https://join.slack.com/t/kywpgeeks/shared_invite/enQtNDIzODk4MjM1NzYzLTJlMjBkNDcxMGEzMDI3MTk5MDA3MjcyMmQ4YjEyNDA5NmY2YThkYjcwZWI0ZDZkMmRmNmQyYjMwOTkyNjVkMDM

WordPress Happiness Bar

Third Street Stuff

It is time to start a new extension of the Central KY WordPress meetup been wanting to get this going for a long time We will be meeting on the Second Thursday of each month at Third Street Stuff which is a coffee house that has some food and sandwiches and deserts and very good open WiFi. There are areas where tables can be brought together in different configurations. It is sort of a strange funky place - the people hanging out there could very easily fit in with a WordPress WordCamp A WordPress Happiness Bar is casual, people can arrive and leave when they want. The object is to share WordPress experiences, and frustrations and show works in progress and work through frustrations and problems. It is an open time to bring your laptop - have some coffee and "play around" with WordPress. First ones arriving will attempt to grab a table or two in an area where the tables can be brought together. It will of course vary depending on how many other people are at the venue when we get there. While these monthly events are primarily for WordPress.org users this is where the WordPress.com users are certainly welcome and have the opportunity to get help or give help to others. The normal monthly meetups are primarily focused on self hosted WordPress sites and the people using the free WordPress.com site for their blogging site will be pretty lost - the two are very different even though both are called WordPress At the happiness bar people can help each other with websites and with blogging or developing eCommerce or online marketing sites or anything concerned with WordPress and web sites. Hope you will drop by the Second Thursday of each month. We will give Third Street Stuff a try for several months and see how it works out. Sixth St Brewery is close by for those that want to so hang out after showing up at the coffee shop
