Location image of event venue


This month we’re all about money! Why pay for themes and plugins?

Afraid there are no food or drinks this month - if you'd like to sponsor these, please let the organisers know!

Doors open. Chat to other WordPressers while we get started, and feel free to order food/drinks from the bar.

Pat yourself on the back, you’re creating content with WordPress. But truth be told, this whole themes vs plugins business is a bit…confusing. Oh, if only there was a way to know it all in under 30 minutes!

*Poof!* Your fairy WordPress Godmother Alison to the rescue! Here to grant your wish, she’ll have you leaving with a deeper understanding of how WordPress really works beyond the publish button. Topics will include:

Visual aids to better understand how WordPress organizes your content
How to pick themes and plugins
Why pay for these things, anyway?

Come highly-caffeinated for this one, folks!
