This group is for anyone who uses (or is interested in learning more about) WordPress and Divi. Built by Elegant Themes, Divi is a drag and drop web page builder for everyday users. This group is a great place to meet fellow members of the Divi Community. Join us to learn, make friends, and network with local designers, developers, DIYers, business owners, and more.
Our Aspirations & Goals
1. We aspire to build a local, personal community for Divi Users.
2. We aspire to empower our members through in-person training, workshops, discussions, and more.
3. The end goal of this meetup is to increase our members' confidence and competence in web design when using WordPress and Divi.
Do you share these aspirations and goals?
To accomplish these things, we need a dependable team of volunteers. After all, the community is not sustained by a single organizer; it's sustained by its members! If any of the volunteer opportunities below sound like something you're interested in, please message the main organizer of this group.
- Bringing refreshments to one or more future meetings
- Greeting new members as they show up
- Promoting events locally and online
- Taking photos at events (helps with promotion for later events)
- Helping to tear down or set up as needed at events
Co-Organizing (Not every Co-Organizer needs to do ALL of the below):
- Speaker/Presenter booking
- Meetup Group Management
- Creating Event Posts
- Announcing/Promoting Events on Meetup
- Reserving venues when needed
- Organizing other volunteers on a per meeting basis
This is the one where we show how easy it is to redesign a WordPress blog using Divi's Theme Builder and Dynamic Data, with Advance Custom Fields (a.k.a: ACF).
Have you ever wanted to update the look of your blog, or site pages? What was once a cumbersome task with Divi, is now very easy.
Guessing roughly an hour-and-a-half oughta be enough for this one.
• We'll welcome anyone new to the group, then do a quick trip around the Zoom for a "Hello!" from everyone in attendance and share what ya brung to sip on.
• We will then briefly rundown what's new from Elegant Themes.
