• WordPress Toronto, Let's fix your site 2022-06-21 Tu

    Link visible for attendees

    This meetup is a virtual group site clinic. The host(s) are experienced WordPress developers. Meeting attendees are encouraged to contribute to the help fixing an issue or address a challenge someone in the Meetup is facing. This is collaborative—we help each other succeed!

    The meeting will be held online at the Zoom link displayed after you RSVP.

    The WordPress Toronto Meetup group is sponsored by Weglot and the Canadian Management Consortium.

    Weglot is the fastest and most flexible ways to translate your website. Here’s a short demo.

    Make your help request by adding a comment in the comments section below prior to the meeting and explain your issue or problem. We address requests in the comments first. and then requests made during the meeting.

    In your request for assistance, be clear and concise. Include your website URL and any other relevant links. Let us know what steps you've taken to fix your problem and where you're stuck. If there are any fixes or issues that the group can't get to in time, someone in the meetup may tackle them with you one-on-one online.

    The earlier you add your request in the comments below the more likely that attendees and hosts will offer advice before the meeting and prioritize your request in the meeting. In some cases, immediate assistance is provided.

    Important — backup your site

    The hosts and attendees are not responsible for any breaks that may occur during the process of attempting to fix your site at the meeting or afterwards. The hosts strongly recommend that you have a backup of your site in case something unexpected happens. You can also let us know that you'd like ideas on fixes rather than actually attempting a fix during the meeting.

    When you join our session, you'll be muted and your video off

    In a previous session, we had an intruder, someone who disrupted us intentionally and maliciously. We were able to change our Zoom settings and remove the miscreant but, in the process, we prevented everyone from speaking and starting their video unless and until we allowed it individual by individual.

    We don't expect the disruption to occur in this session but the additional security steps remain in place. Accordingly, when we admit you to the Zoom session, your audio will be muted and your video off.

    When you want to speak for the first time, use the chat to ask to be unmuted. When you are unmuted, start your video so we can confirm that you are a member of our group or a guest. If you don't start your video or explain why you aren't, we'll remove you from the session.

    "Thanks for your help at the Meetup! This is the first one I’ve been to that is so genuinely focused on helping people solve the challenges they are having with their site. Everyone got a chance to share what they wanted fixed and Alex and other people helped solve the issues. It was good to see all the brainstorming and the solutions! I would highly recommend going to this Meetup." Heather M.

    "Great to see practically all members contributing to solve problems. Perhaps one day soon, this newbie will have something constructive to contribute as well." Heinrich D.
