Our monthly meetup for WordPress users, bloggers and developers.

This month we will be running a support special, with a talk from two members of the WordPress team at, followed by an open site clinic and roundtables.

Kayleigh Thorpe & Keith Hyde - Battling The White Screen of Death: A Tech Support Tale

In this talk, Kayleigh and Keith will be covering a number of common issues they see on a day-to-day basis as part of the WordPress Specialist team at a hosting company. The talk will cover the White Screen of Death and common causes, but more importantly they will be showing people what our process is when troubleshooting common WordPress support issues. They will cover how to remove plugins and themes, checking through error logs as well as how you can use free handy support tools to troubleshoot issues with your WordPress site.

Site Clinic / Roundtables

For the second half we will be running our site clinic, bring a laptop and some problems. We will have several tables setup, just pick a table, sit down, and join the discussion.

The proposed tables are:
- Security
- Performance
- General questions/site issues
- Development and code

Want to start a discussion, or think a table is missing let us know.

After 20-25 minutes we will let people know, you can have a quick break, move to another table or continue on the table you are on. There is something for everyone, be it your first time using WordPress to a seasoned developer.

Why not speak at our next event?

We are always looking for people to come and speak at our events. So if you have an idea for a talk, a discussion or just want to show folks what you have been working on, get in touch. You don't need to be a professional speaker or even to have spoken in a group before.

If you don't want to do a talk, but are interested in hearing about a specific subject, or have an idea/problem, get in touch and we will try to find someone who can help.
