Join us this month for general WordPress discussion, Q & A, networking and more. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Hey you, WordPresser! We need your help! We need organizers to keep this thing going and our current organizing team has been at it for 2–4 years and it's time for some fresh minds with fresh ideas to step up to the challenge (it's really not that much of a challenge). If you're interested in helping to lead this community please contact us to get plugged in. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Your Favorite eCommerce Store is a Secret Dumpster Fire

    UNT Health Science Center - EAD 108 (Carl E. Everett Education & Administration Bldg)

    Join us this month as co-organizer Marc Gratch shares how to plan for eCommerce success outcomes. Most eCommerce sites running on WordPress start the same. A theme, a few plugins and a lot of hope. Over time the site endures updates, new features, design changes, getting hacked, and if good fortune should strike: A spike in business. Many of the most successful sites have similar stories. Unfortunately without proper planning, managing something that seemed so simple a few months ago can become a major headache when the checkout button is being clicked frequently enough. Understanding how things can go wrong with your eCommerce shop, and even more so knowing how to avoid some of the more common mistakes can be the difference of putting out fires versus growing your business. ----------------------------------- Improve your public speaking skills while helping others.
