    This would have been really great if I had found the group when I was just getting started; I think it's perfect for beginners. Most of it turned out to be a review for me, which was encouraging, letting me know I'm further along than I sometimes realize. I'd recommend it to anyone just getting started in WordPress.

    This will be my first time and I am very excited, I have a ton of questions. Will back up of files be covered?

    Hi Judi, Jack. I want to learn more about manual installation, managing my directory and setting up/using stage environments. I find most beginner classes teach the automatic install and don't cover much of this so I don't understand how the guts of my site actually work. Any ideas where I can learn to do things the hard way? :-)

      Katrina, great question, I think you're talking about loading your site and a platform so you can work on your site on your computer. I think that will have to be another meetup.

    I just had the wonderful Frank Niemeir set up my site and now it's my turn to drive! I need to learn how to add content and images to posts and pages.

    • Jack K.

      Traci, Glad you'll be there, you'll be surprised how easy it is to start a new page-post, and being a graphic designer you'll have an easy time adding images. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I am really looking forward to this upcoming Meetup! Could we also cover setting up an FTP client? Navigating my site's folders on the host's server is bewildering to me and even though I have been successful at getting things done by following directions, I don't really understand a lot of what I'm doing. Katrina, I'm interested in hearing the answer to your suggestion/question, too. This is going to be a great evening.

    Yikes....$20 starts to make these things cost prohibitive.

    • Judi K.

      Sorry the price went in automatically and was a mistake. It is only ten dollars per person. That covers pizza and beer since there is not an option to purchase food at my location.

  • Judi K.

    We will go over how to use WordPress. We will help people get sites set up. We will spend the last hour going over things for moe technical people new to WordPress.

  • Michael

    Any more description on what subjects the beginner WordPress workshop will cover? Things like basic use of WordPress and basic configuration? Thanks!
