This meetup is a group site-clinic. The host(s), experienced WordPress developers in attendance and everyone else will work to help fix an issue or address a challenge someone in the meetup is facing.
To gain priority for your "help" request, please explain your issue prior to the meeting in the comments section below.
Participating before the meetup by submitting your question with your URL in the Comment section will allow attendees and hosts to offer immediate advice before the meeting and get your question PRIORITIZED at the meetup. Please be clear, concise and include your website and all relevant links. Let us know what steps you've taken to try to fix your problem and where you're stuck.
The rest of the group will have a chance to get their fixes addressed at the meeting in an order determined by the hosts. If there's any fixes that the group can't get to in time, someone in the meetup may tackle them with you 1 on 1, online or in the next meeting.
Make sure you have your administrative credentials ready. Our projector has an HDMI video port. If you need to connect your laptop please bring an adapter to broadcast to an HDMI port.
***Important Note*** The hosts/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 HIGHLY recommend you have a backup of your site, just 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.

"I will shed light, not heat." from https://josepha.blog/2018/11/20/making-the-most-of-your-wordpress-meetup-experience/

"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.
