WordPress and its plugin creators are constantly making updates and pushing releases. Sometimes these updates can break small elements to a site or completely take it down. Learn why these updates are important and how to troubleshoot issues that appear.
Topics We'll cover...
- Why updates are made
- How to update
- Rolling back to before the update
- Recovering a downed site
- Finding a fix
WORDPRESSERS OF ALL SKILL-SETS ARE WELCOME!

---- FAQ? ----
-- Is this a place to promote my services and products I sell?
No. There are networking groups specifically for that. We're not one of them.
-- Can I talk about my business and things I sell?
Sure, we want to help you with your WordPress site, but DON'T sell your products to the Meetup Group. There are other communities for that sort of stuff and it's not welcome here.
-- Is there a cover charge?
Absolutely Not! Our sponsor, WP-Engine, has put up the funds so you don't have to. The only thing we ask is that you participate and be welcoming toward one another. This is a safe meetup to learn from one another.
-- Will there be food and/or drink?
No food or drink will be provided. The Metropolis's Coffee counter is also closed during our meet. The organizer likes Oreos and sometimes brings them, no promises though.
Thank you to our sponsor WP-Engine.
