Bring your Beginning Wordpress Questions!

Hello Wordpress Fans!

For our February Tuesday 2014 Meetup, we'll again be taking your beginning questions...Keeping this Q & A format has been requested by members who have attended recently and I am happy to  continue this format for as long as it's in demand and useful!

If you have already have a Wordpress web site and have specific basic questions on how to do something, bring your computer and we'll try to get you pointed in the right direction.

In addition to Q & A, several members have expressed interest in learning the BASICS of modifying CSS on their web sites. I'll be introducing how to begin to approach this popular & important topic, and doing some demo on my own web site. 

If you have your own web site, and are trying to make some minor CSS changes bring your computer and I'll try to get you started in the right direction. Keep in mind, CSS is "tricky" and this will be very rudimentary, in keeping with the scope of this Beginner's group. I'll also briefly discuss how to get theme help from your PAID theme developer's support, an extension of our last session on themes.


Please continue thinking about meeting format...

• We can keep the Q & A format, or

• I can present / demo in a more structured format

• Or, like last time, we can do some of both...

As those of you who attended the last Saturday meeting are aware, our lovely venue is not ideal for presenting a traditional slide show, if there are over 8-10 people in attendance. For this reason, I'll continue to utilize hands-on "at-the-computer" demos...

This Beginner's group is to help you get up-to-speed with Wordpress, so let me know what you want & need.


We Now Meet Twice Monthly!

Meeting as infrequently as monthly is often difficult for beginners...there are so many questions that come up when learning Wordpress! As promised, I added a Saturday session beginning in January 2014. This weekend date helps those who have had problems getting to the weeknight meetups. 

As some of you know, I drive quite a distance (I live in Lancaster, in the Antelope Valley) -- which I'm happy to do -- but I need to make sure we have sufficient interest, so PLEASE RSVP in sufficient time before each session!

The Saturday session begins @ 6:00 pm since Fountain Avenue parking is unrestricted (but still busy) on Saturdays. We are continuing to meet @ Cafe Om for this mid-month Saturday Meetup.

As always, please please feel free to email me directly between meetings with any questions or feedback:


Thanks to CafeOm owners Tolga & Nesrin generously offering their awesome Cafe, this meetup is FREE! They have coffees & teas, fresh juices, as well as an assortment of light snacks and delicious & healthy sandwiches and wraps, so please consider supporting them during our meetup.
