You asked and we deliver! This Meetup is for the beginners - but please all of our WordPress veterans and gurus come out and support the newbies.
Judi Knight will go through the basics of getting started with a WordPress Website. She'll cover the difference between WordPress.com and the full, self-hosted WordPress.org; go over basic installation issues, important settings, the anatomy of a WordPress Site, how to choose a theme, the difference between pages and posts and when to use them, what are plugins and widgets, and how to use categories and tags. We will then take lots of time for specific questions and answers.
Note: The Developers meeting is NOT being held prior to this meeting. Russell is working out a new time and place to give the developers group its own quiet home. Way too distracting to try to do both groups in one evening.
