À propos de ce groupe

The Ottawa WordPress Group is all about learning WordPress, for beginners and experts alike!

Do you want to learn about WordPress? Do you have a WordPress blog or site, or use WordPress at work? Would you like to talk to others about WordPress? Do you need to know more about how to run your site?

There are 3 meeting tracks: (See all upcoming meetups (https://www.meetup.com/The-Ottawa-WordPress-Group/events/))

1) The "General (http://wpottawa.org/category/meetups/general/)" track, usually meets the first Wednesday of the month. This track includes beginner WordPress topics and general topics like SEO.

2) The "Not Beginner (http://wpottawa.org/category/meetups/not-beginner/)" track, meets on the third Wednesday of select months. This track is all the talks that cover anything that is "not beginner". That does mean that some "not beginner" talks may not be very advanced at all, and levels do vary from talk to talk, check the talk description. Some prior knowledge of WordPress is expected at "not beginner" talks.

3) The "Contrib2Core (http://wpottawa.org/category/meetups/virtual-contrib2core/)" track, usually meets the second Monday of the month. This track is a series of virtual meetings to engage in contributions to the WordPress core (fixing bugs, updating documentation etc.). It is aimed at developers or those interested in becoming developers.

Most meetings are presentations that do not require you to bring a laptop. Meetings that are "Workshops" will generally require that you have laptop, and we will have WiFi available.

See our website (http://wpottawa.org) for other resources and past presentations.

December 2019 Meetup

Ottawa Public Library - Main

The Block Editor (aka Gutenberg) - 1 Year Later --- One year ago the classic content editor in WordPress was replaced with Gutenberg, now known as the block editor. The block editor introduces a completely new way of creating content in WordPress. Everything is a block! If you have not been using the new editor for the last year, it's time to start considering it. Most of the major/popular plugins and themes are now fully Gutenberg compatible. Some plugins and themes are even starting to introduce new features that are only available as blocks. Come out and see what Gutenberg brings to WordPress and why you should consider using it if you are not already. PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE CHANGE!

January 2020 Meetup

Ottawa Public Library - Main

WordPress Page Builders --- Looking for an easier way to build and customize your WordPress site? WordPress page builders add a drag and drop style interface to WordPress that allows you to more easily create, edit, and customize your page layout. Several of the builders even offer ways to customize theme headers/footers, 404 and search pages, as well as archive pages (blog post listing). This month we'll look at a few of the more popular page builders available for WordPress, and demonstrate some of the cool things they can do. Come out and see Cornerstone, Elementor, Divi and Beaver Builder in action. PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE CHANGE!
