What we're about

The Toronto WordPress Group brings together WordPress enthusiasts of all types, whether you are a designer, programmer or end-user; beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

Starting with informal "pub social" Meetups in January 2010, we've grown through pubs, cafes, libraries, and office spaces. At our peak we were running meetups with ~80 attendees per session. We're now running a handful of different meetup series in spaces around Toronto, from Etobicoke to Scarborough.

The group is evolving, as is the meeting structure. With presentations on a wide range of WordPress related topics, and great discussion about all things WordPress, meetings are lively and interesting. Join us, and find out why WordPress is so popular!

PageBuilders as PageStylers for a distinct WordPress advantage

Etobicoke Civic Centre

WordPress PageBuilders now are major players in Website Design. On the Design side the top PageBuilders have unmatched PageStyling capabilities. This presentation will highlight how to take advantage of PageBuilder's styling finesse. These PageStyling features have made PageBuilder more popular. For example, the top 4 Pagebuilder have large followings - Elementor has 3 million active users, Divi 1.2 million, Beaver Builder .5 million, and SiteOrigin over 1 million. And right now there is intense competition among the top PageBuilders with Gutenberg lurking as their replacement. In response the PageBuilders are adding more unique modules/widgets But another area of even faster innovation is all the PageStyling features each PageBuilder has on offer. The list is impressive: 1)There is site wide PageStyling – but be careful the PageBuilder PageStylings may clash with the Theme's CSS Customizations; 2)Every PageBuilder widget/module has Style and Advanced CSS options for styling that widget/module; 3)Every row and column created in a PageBuilder layout also has a set of Style and Advanced CSS options; 4)Style and Advanced CSS options are all point and click simple to use and include changes to colors, text fonts and typography, spacings, shadows and borders, etc, etc;, 5)Advanced options have sophisticated animation and parallax settings; 6)All the top PageBuilders allow copying and pasting stylings from one module/widget to another; ditto for copying and pasting row and column stylings; Now in the last 2 months each of the PageBuilders have introduced new PageStyling features which we highlight now because they can be very useful in giving your website a competitive look. Here is a demo website built and PageStyled in less than 3 hours - [http://bit.ly/2ZjJPVQ ]. So if you plan to attend the Meetup, bring along some styling questions/problems that you would like us to solve as a live demo of PageBuilders' PageStyling prowess. Let us know in your RSVP what CSS problem you would like solved and don't forget to bring to the meetup your admin id and password to the website needing a "styling fix". . Bring a styling problem even if you don't use a PageBuilder. We will try to solve it with a PageBuilder and if not that one of the free CSS Styling plugins. So think of this also as a CSS problem solving and Get Things Done Meetup.
