Hi All,

We'll be gathering again soon for drinks and a chat. This month I'll be speaking on theming. I'll try to cover something interesting for people at all skill levels.

Talk

Speaker: Nate Wright

Topic: Theming your site: from your first tweak to advanced techniques

Ever wondered how WordPress controls the theme of your site or wanted to make your own style adjustments? I'll show you how to begin making simple one-off adjustments to your site's style.

For more intrepid tinkerers, I'll show you how to use Child Themes to make broader changes, and how to work faster in your browser to play and experiment with changes.

If we have time, I'll cover some more advanced techniques for developers who want to improve their theming chops. We'll take a quick look at fighting CSS specificity, the template hierarchy, and some tips on how to be a good coding neighbour when enqueuing your assets.

And bring along your questions and we'll be happy to answer them.

Schedule

6pm - Arrive

6:30pm - Speaker

7:00pm - Discuss and hang out

As always everyone is welcome, we have beginners and we have developers in our group, so please do come along regardless or your WordPress knowledge!

The social gathering we have after the talk has been very beneficial for people to meet others interested in WordPress and even get tips and recommendations not associated with the topic of the night.

We look forward to seeing you there!
