  • Help Desk - Bring Your Laptop, Yourself and Your WordPress Problems

    Pennsylvania's Americana Region

    As we work to find some great talks for upcoming Meetups, we wanted to get something scheduled that can help our members while also helping the organizer get a feel for topics of interest to our group. If you need help with a specific issue for your site or advice on how to get started, please join us and get help from the group's WordPress experts. We will have at least 2 experts on hand and hopefully more. If you are attending and would like to help as an expert, please message Kim Coleman. There will be wifi available. You don't need to have an issue to attend - sometimes it is helpful just to sit in and see what other people are working on or struggling with, even if they don't directly apply to anything you are working on personally. Given the time constraints, we may not be able to solve everyone's issues - you can help this go smoothly by coming prepared with a short list of your questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
