Hello WordPress Users,
Hope you all had a nice summer.
If you have missed our first few events, don't despair. You can find the slides of what we covered so far here http://www.meetup.com/WordPress-User-Group-London/files/
Since we've been away for so long we'll have a light restart based on networking and a walk through a theme modification talk.
More often than not we don't have the time to build a theme from scratch and/or have the budget to ask someone to do it for us. Buying an off the shelf theme and customise it to branding requirements have become a common practice. Some of you might be lured by a very engaging demo theme but find it difficult to adapt your content around the newly purchased item. Some other might want to change more than just the colours and fonts. Well I'll try my best to show you what are the best ways to go about and deliver a well balanced, cost efficient, original website.
Please don't forget to bring your own laptop along, WiFi will be available.
Of course there will also be plenty of time for you to ask questions and network with all other WordPress users.

The event will be held at the Hub Westminster, 1st floor New Zealand House, 80 Haymarket, Westminster, London, SW1Y 4TE, which is conveniently located between Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square.
One of us will welcome you on the ground floor where you'll be asked to sign in and collect your pass. Please wear your pass at all times since we are part of a government building. Then make your way to the 1st floor via the lift (not the stairs, those lead to Narnia) and then follow the signs to the Strategy lab.
If you have any questions, here are two forums that can help you out.

Last but not least, we are building some resources for you to consume, help yourself here under the "Table of Contents" http://www.meetup.com/WordPress-User-Group-London/about/
Look forward to seeing you soon.
