WordPress Bi-Weekly Coffee Klatch - The Functions File

The Grind Coffee House and Roaster

Most WordPress themes have a functions file. It contains configurations for the theme's back-end behavior: functions (like how many widgets in the footer and how many navigation menus are offered), actions, hooks, filters, fonts, copyright, default image sizes, and so much more! You can extend the functionality of a site by modifying and/or adding to the functions file. WPSWFL co-organizer, Anne Katzeff, will give a demo of some key things you can change in the file. She'll offer options for how to make the changes and emphasize best practices (like backing up the file before you touch it). Even if you are a novice, you will gain SOMEthing from this presentation. Bring your questions and your curiosity! We only ask that each person purchase something small from the coffee shop. They have items as reasonable as $0.75 and great fruit smoothies. Agenda: • 11 am Meetup Organizer’s welcome and general housekeeping • Introductions - State your name and 30-Second introduction. • Primary Topic • Discussion about primary topic. • General questions and troubleshooting individual issues as a group - we all want to know how to solve the same issue should it arrive for us.
