WPATX Beginners: How The WordPress Media Library Works

T-Werx Coworking - Four Points

• What we'll do Good photos, logos, icons and other media on a site are key to a website's appeal, popularity and conversion rates. We will review uploading media in pages and posts, including the media settings, size options, as well as default image sizes – resizing images, creating thumbnails and the value of the alt tag and captions for both Accessibility and SEO. The presentation will also demonstrate how to use the WordPress built-in image alignment features and help attendees understand how images interact with the text; and will include wrapping text around images, changing margins, padding and borders around the images within the content and when and how to use the ‘Featured Image’ option. Photoblogs and Galleries will also be discussed as well as copyright-free sources for images. The focus of this meetup will be on native WordPress functionality rather than third-party plugins. We will close with a Q&A. • What to bring Bring your laptops and your questions! • Important to know This class is designed for those new to WordPress Thank you to our venue sponsors for the WPATX Beginners Class: T-Werx Coworking and the West Austin Chamber of Commerce.
