Widgets are an important part of any website. They allow you to add search bars, recent post and category lists, advertising, information from other websites and all sorts of fun stuff... all without touching any theme code.

This month's Meetup is going to cover using the WordPress widget system to add all this and more to your website. We'll go over:

How to make your theme "widget ready" if it's not.
Use the default Widgets that come with all WordPress installs.
Learn why the TEXT widget is the most powerful widget in the universe!
Add content from another website's rss feed to your blog.
Allow users to subscribe to your rss feed.
Easily add advertising to your website and make some money ( only)

And much more!!

As an added bonus at the end of this session, Johnathan Anderson will give a brief tutorial on building your own widgets!

*** Please note that this Meetup will be on the 4th Tuesday, not the 3rd. ***
