What we're about

The Toronto WordPress Group brings together WordPress enthusiasts of all types, whether you are a designer, programmer or end-user; beginner, intermediate, or advanced.
Starting with informal "pub social" Meetups in January 2010, we've grown through pubs, cafes, libraries, and office spaces. At our peak we were running meetups with ~80 attendees per session. We're now running a handful of different meetup series in spaces around Toronto, from Etobicoke to Scarborough.
The group is evolving, as is the meeting structure. With presentations on a wide range of WordPress related topics, and great discussion about all things WordPress, meetings are lively and interesting. Join us, and find out why WordPress is so popular!

WordPress Global Community Sponsors help fund WordPress Meetup groups and WordCamps around the world. Thank you to WordPress.com, WooCommerce, Jetpack, Nexcess, Bluehost, and Weglot, for their support!

Link visible for attendees

This meetup is a virtual group site clinic. The hosts are experienced WordPress designers, developers and consultants. Meeting attendees are encouraged to contribute to the help on an issue or address a challenge someone in the Meetup is facing. This is collaborative—we help each other succeed.

The meeting will be held online at the Zoom link displayed after you RSVP. (If the link isn't clickable, copy and paste it into your browser.)

The WordPress Toronto Meetup group is sponsored by Weglot and the Canadian Management Consortium.

Weglot is the fastest and most flexible ways to translate your website. Here’s a short demo.

Make your help request by adding a comment in the comments section below prior to the meeting and explain your issue or problem. We address requests in the comments first. and then requests made during the meeting. You can also use your RSVP to make your request.

In your request for assistance, be clear and concise. Include your website URL and any other relevant links. Let us know what steps you've taken to fix your problem and where you're stuck. If there are any fixes or issues that the group can't get to in time, someone in the meetup may tackle them with you one-on-one online.

Important — backup your site

The hosts and attendees are not responsible for any breaks that may occur during the process of attempting to fix your site at the meeting or afterwards. The hosts strongly recommend that you have a backup of your site in case something unexpected happens. You can also let us know that you'd like ideas on fixes rather than actually attempting a fix during the meeting.

Be prepared to share your site's admin dashboard page

We recommend that you attend the session using a desktop or notebook computer so that you can login into your site and share your screen during the discussion of your problem or issue.

When you want to speak for the first time, start your video so we can confirm that you are a member of our group or a guest. If you don't start your video or explain why you aren't, we'll remove you from the session.

Comments from our attendees

"Thanks for a great session. It was helpful to get some answers and see what other WPers are facing." Tim H.

"Thanks for your help at the Meetup! This is the first one I’ve been to that is so genuinely focused on helping people solve the challenges they are having with their site. Everyone got a chance to share what they wanted fixed and Alex and other people helped solve the issues. It was good to see all the brainstorming and the solutions! I would highly recommend going to this Meetup." Heather M.

"Great to see practically all members contributing to solve problems. Perhaps one day soon, this newbie will have something constructive to contribute as well." Heinrich D.
