Meet the developer of The Divi Machine Plugin, Peter Wilkinson. Peter will give us a live demonstration of the Divi Machine Plugin. He will show us how this awesome plugin works and how you can use it for your website or your client's website.

Peter is originally from South Africa and is now living in the UK. He started Divi Engine over 3 ½ years ago as he was creating custom plugins for customers. He couldn’t find suitable solutions for issues like script minification. Instead of keeping these solutions to himself he decided to share them with the Divi Community.

Divi Engine is also known for the Divi Body Commerce Plugin, it’s the #1 Divi and WooCommerce plugin. It’s more than just a product page builder it adds modules giving more options starting with the product page to the checkout.

The core of Divi Engine is about giving back to the Divi Community and for every purchase on Divi Machine website they give a gift to The Sozo Foundation in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Meetup will start at 5:00 PM Central time as Peter is in the UK.

All are welcome.
As always, come with your WordPress/Divi questions and we will spend time after the presentation helping each other out.

For the foreseeable future, the WordPress Help Desk will be moved online. These events have worked well for the past couple of months, and many people have fixed their website during a 1-on-1 WordPress Help Desk call.

To schedule a 1-on-1 WordPress Help Desk call, simply use the calendar found here: https://optsus.com/wp-help-desk/

Confused? Please read this entire description including the TLDR and FAQ sections to clear up any confusion about changes as this event moves from in-person to online.

Bring your laptop because we are going to help you with your website!

Are you trying to figure out how to fix your website using only YouTube videos?

Frustrated by support forum posts that are dated from 5+ years ago?

We will have at least one WordPress professional available to answer questions and help you work on your website.

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

I'm adding to the description because a couple of people have been confused by these events. The link above is for you to schedule the WordPress Help Desk 1-on-1 call. The available times are generally from 9 AM until 10 AM, which is why this event is scheduled for that time. However, this is not a group call.

When the world shifted to hosting events from home, back in March, I tested this as a group call. As people received answers for their questions about WordPress, they left the call. This frustrated the people who had to wait and listen to the other questions and answers during the call. I don't want to waste everyone's time in this way.

At an in-person event, it's possible to work in a group and ask questions as they come up. However, this does not transition into a video conference call very well. Instead, I have opened up my calendar to schedule 1-on-1 calls using the link above. We will focus on the one question you have about your website.

The reason this event is reoccurring here on Meetup is to let you know the WordPress Help Desk events are still available. Before quarantine, this was an event hosted in Raleigh once per month for two hours. Now, this is a 1-on-1 video conference call scheduled for 20 minute blocks multiple times throughout the month.

There will be no link shared for a group call with this event. The WordPress Help Desk events have become 1-on-1 video conference calls which can be scheduled using the link above.

----FAQ----

Where is the link to join the call?
- If you are looking for a link to join a group call, there isn't one. These events have moved to 1-on-1 scheduled appointments. When you schedule your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to join your 1-on-1 call.

Why can't I get into the Zoom call?
- Please check the date and time in the confirmation email for your scheduled 1-on-1 call.

Why is this event repeating each morning, but there are no available appointment times this morning?
- These calls are scheduled in advance. If there is no time available today, you can book your call for the next available time.

What is the point of having these events on Meetup if we are scheduling 1-on-1 calls with another calendar?
- These events were held in-person with 20 - 50 people attending once per month. Unfortunately, hosting large group in-person events like this would be irresponsible right now. We tried hosting group calls some weeks ago and those did not go well. In a group call, one person has their question addressed while the others wait. After that one person gets the answer to their question, they drop off the call. The other people on the call feel ignored and become frustrated because they spend most of their time waiting. To solve this problem, we are now scheduling brief 1-on-1 calls to work directly on your WordPress question without the wait. The Meetup events are published to remind you that these Help Desk events are still available to help you with your website.

Bobby DeLisio is the organizer of the WordPress Users of the Palm Beaches Meetup Group and host of this event. He has been designing and developing websites since the early 90's. When commercial use restrictions were lifted from the Internet in 1995 he started his own company which developed websites for businesses. Bobby's first commercial website was written in HTML 2.0 (or was it 1.1 ???) using notepad with a liberal use of tables and single pixel gifs to create structure. A far cry from creating website layouts with CSS Grid.

For the foreseeable future, the WordPress Help Desk will be moved online. These events have worked well for the past couple of months, and many people have fixed their website during a 1-on-1 WordPress Help Desk call.

To schedule a 1-on-1 WordPress Help Desk call, simply use the calendar found here: https://optsus.com/wp-help-desk/

Confused? Please read this entire description including the TLDR and FAQ sections to clear up any confusion about changes as this event moves from in-person to online.

Bring your laptop because we are going to help you with your website!

Are you trying to figure out how to fix your website using only YouTube videos?

Frustrated by support forum posts that are dated from 5+ years ago?

We will have at least one WordPress professional available to answer questions and help you work on your website.

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

I'm adding to the description because a couple of people have been confused by these events. The link above is for you to schedule the WordPress Help Desk 1-on-1 call. The available times are generally from 9 AM until 10 AM, which is why this event is scheduled for that time. However, this is not a group call.

When the world shifted to hosting events from home, back in March, I tested this as a group call. As people received answers for their questions about WordPress, they left the call. This frustrated the people who had to wait and listen to the other questions and answers during the call. I don't want to waste everyone's time in this way.

At an in-person event, it's possible to work in a group and ask questions as they come up. However, this does not transition into a video conference call very well. Instead, I have opened up my calendar to schedule 1-on-1 calls using the link above. We will focus on the one question you have about your website.

The reason this event is reoccurring here on Meetup is to let you know the WordPress Help Desk events are still available. Before quarantine, this was an event hosted in Raleigh once per month for two hours. Now, this is a 1-on-1 video conference call scheduled for 20 minute blocks multiple times throughout the month.

There will be no link shared for a group call with this event. The WordPress Help Desk events have become 1-on-1 video conference calls which can be scheduled using the link above.

----FAQ----

Where is the link to join the call?
- If you are looking for a link to join a group call, there isn't one. These events have moved to 1-on-1 scheduled appointments. When you schedule your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to join your 1-on-1 call.

Why can't I get into the Zoom call?
- Please check the date and time in the confirmation email for your scheduled 1-on-1 call.

Why is this event repeating each morning, but there are no available appointment times this morning?
- These calls are scheduled in advance. If there is no time available today, you can book your call for the next available time.

What is the point of having these events on Meetup if we are scheduling 1-on-1 calls with another calendar?
- These events were held in-person with 20 - 50 people attending once per month. Unfortunately, hosting large group in-person events like this would be irresponsible right now. We tried hosting group calls some weeks ago and those did not go well. In a group call, one person has their question addressed while the others wait. After that one person gets the answer to their question, they drop off the call. The other people on the call feel ignored and become frustrated because they spend most of their time waiting. To solve this problem, we are now scheduling brief 1-on-1 calls to work directly on your WordPress question without the wait. The Meetup events are published to remind you that these Help Desk events are still available to help you with your website.

RESCHEDULED, new date:
Gutenberg AMA (Ask Me Anything) with Michelle Schulp
======================================================================

Whether you are brand new to the Block Editor (powered by the WordPress project known as Gutenberg) or have started to use it in projects already, there are still tons of features to discover and questions about the best way to approach a new project. Regardless of your experience, bring your questions about tools, best practices, how to get started, how the editor works, how to build layouts, or anything else you'd love to know. We will take a conversational approach to this AMA, that might involve examples, live conversation, feature demos, or testing things out live in the editor.

Michelle is a designer and frontend developer that has been using the Block Editor and the Gutenberg feature plugin on client projects since it has launched. She has built several sites with a combination of tools, including blocks, custom fields, and custom templates, and has given several talks at WordCamps about building with Gutenberg. She is also helping test the new Full Site Editing feature that will be coming to WordPress in the future.

Feel free to post your questions in advance here, the mspwp.slack.com channel #womenwhowp, or DM the co-hosts.

RSVP to get the zoom link (will be posted for attendees before the meetup)

======================================================

Background
Women Who WP (WordPress) started with a group of ladies in Orange County that decided to start a group of women who use WordPress. Now, Women Who WP is a nationwide initiative to bring us WordPress women together!

Mission
WordPress is a vast community serving the needs of many members. As women who are instrumentally involved in the WordPress community, we formed Women Who WP to address the unique needs that females of all ages experience in a field that is predominantly male. Anyone who RSVPs is welcome to attend Women Who WP events – we are women-inclusive, not gender-exclusive. All attendees are expected to abide by the Women Who WP Code of Conduct.

https://womenwhowp.org/code-of-conduct/

We are currently looking for sponsors and additional members of our planning team.

Due the Corvad 19 pandemic - WordCamps are no longer live in person events - they have moved to online formats or they have cancelled- until further notice. Go to WordCamp.org for further information

WordPress meetups have also cancelled or have gone to an online format - WordPress is recommending all meetups cancel in person meetups until things open up again

So far as the local group Third St Stuff is closed as is everything else - The Lexington Libraries are closed and so our reservations for meeting room space have been cancelled

So far a online or virtual Meetups go - first the 2nd Thursday Happiness Bar format is basically a place for problem solving and or showing what you are working on. This can easily continue on our Slack Channel - I will make certain to have Slack up and open on the 2nd Thursday evening of every month starting at 6:30 PM until at least 8:00 PM - Please try to drop by. Activity will be on the #General channel

So far as the last Monday of the month meetups held on Monday evenings - we might give that a try with Zoom or ZoHo - the problem though is with the extreme increase in Zoom and ZoHo use both platforms have become unstable and unreliable - webinars will start off OK and within minutes fail - that means a new link has to be set up and attempted which also means everyone must be notified of the new link

And there is another thing going on - if you post a Zoom link publicly - like here on Meetup for example or on websites or social media --- scammers have figured out how to "scrape" the link and join in
webinars - once inside they are taking over the webinars and scree n share and showing porno stuff. WordPress - Wordcamp organizers are warning against publicly posting Zoom and ZoHo link and I would assume that also includes Webly -

I am not certain I will post a new monthly Meetup this month and will wait an see how this is looking Mid May

For now on the 2nd Thursday of each month I will have our Slack General channel open and be there from 6:30 to 8:00 PM hope folks will join me there
Ronald Headley - Central Kentucky WorpPress Meetup group

It is time to start a extension of the Central KY WordPress meetup been wanting to get this going for a long time

We will be meeting on the Second Thursday of each month at Third Street Stuff which is a coffee house that has some food and sandwiches and deserts and very good open WiFi. There are areas where tables can be brought together in different configurations. It is sort of a strange funky place - the people hanging out there could very easily fit in with a WordPress WordCamp

A WordPress Happiness Bar is casual, people can arrive and leave when they want. The object is to share WordPress experiences, and frustrations and show works in progress and work through frustrations and problems. It is an open time to bring your laptop - have some coffee and "play around" with WordPress. First ones arriving will attempt to grab a table or two in an area where the tables can be brought together. It will of course vary depending on how many other people are at the venue when we get there.

While these monthly events are primarily for WordPress.org users this is where the WordPress.com users are certainly welcome and have the opportunity to get help or give help to others. The normal monthly meetups are primarily focused on self hosted WordPress sites and the people using the free WordPress.com site for their blogging site will be pretty lost - the two are very different even though both are called WordPress

At the happiness bar people can help each other with websites and with blogging or developing eCommerce or online marketing sites or anything concerned with WordPress and web sites.

Hope you will drop by the Second Thursday of each month. We will give Third Street Stuff a try for several months and see how it works out. Sixth St Brewery is close by for those that want to so hang out after showing up at the coffee shop

Do you have a WordPress website and have an issue you need help with? Bring it to the workshop and the Inland Empire WordPress group will do their best to help you through it. IEWP Workshops encourages EVERYONE to attend, female or male, old or young, beginner/intermediate/advanced. Those more advanced can help the others. We'll keep the introductions and announcements minimal so you can dive right in and get some help. There is no question that is too basic. We're here for you!

We'll still be meeting on the 2nd Thursday of every month at the Riverside I|O at 7pm. Eat before you come, bring your laptop, bring your local server installed on your laptop (if you don't have one, we will get you set up on DesktopServer), and get ready to get or give some help. We look forward to seeing you! Wifi is available.

When you RSVP, we'll be trying to find enough helpers to help...so if you can't attend, let us know sooner, rather than later. Thanks!

FYI: Make sure you have admin access to your WordPress site. If someone else set up your site for you, make sure they give you admin access. You'll need it.

Have questions or problems related to WordPress, WooCommerce, plugins, themes, or Google Analytics?

This WordPress Helpdesk & Hacking Meetup is a great opportunity to hang out with other WordPress users, get questions answered, maybe help others, and even work on your projects alongside other members.

Q: What if I don't have questions or problems?

A: You should still attend - you may be able to help someone else, or simply get the benefit of working on your projects with like-minded folks.

Q: I don't know much about WordPress - can I still come?

A: Absolutely, ALL skill and experience levels are welcome!

We hope to see you soon - you bring yourself and we'll provide the coffee.

Are you confused about what a "Theme" is and how it works with WordPress? In this event we'll try to clear up the "mystery" of how themes control the layout of your website. We'll take a deep dive into how a theme works and give advice for choosing the right theme for your needs.

We'll also look at "Theme Builders", which allow non-technical people to take even greater control over the appearance of their websites. We'll do a live demo of the theme builder included in Divi.

And we'll wrap up the presentation by discussing the future of themes as Gutenberg continues to evolve in WordPress.

We hope you'll find this event interesting and informative no matter what your level of experience is!

We'll also save time for an open Q&A forum where you can bring up any other website questions.

For the foreseeable future, the WordPress Help Desk will be moved online. These events have worked well for the past couple of months, and many people have fixed their website during a 1-on-1 WordPress Help Desk call.

To schedule a 1-on-1 WordPress Help Desk call, simply use the calendar found here: https://optsus.com/wp-help-desk/

Confused? Please read this entire description including the TLDR and FAQ sections to clear up any confusion about changes as this event moves from in-person to online.

Bring your laptop because we are going to help you with your website!

Are you trying to figure out how to fix your website using only YouTube videos?

Frustrated by support forum posts that are dated from 5+ years ago?

We will have at least one WordPress professional available to answer questions and help you work on your website.

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

I'm adding to the description because a couple of people have been confused by these events. The link above is for you to schedule the WordPress Help Desk 1-on-1 call. The available times are generally from 9 AM until 10 AM, which is why this event is scheduled for that time. However, this is not a group call.

When the world shifted to hosting events from home, back in March, I tested this as a group call. As people received answers for their questions about WordPress, they left the call. This frustrated the people who had to wait and listen to the other questions and answers during the call. I don't want to waste everyone's time in this way.

At an in-person event, it's possible to work in a group and ask questions as they come up. However, this does not transition into a video conference call very well. Instead, I have opened up my calendar to schedule 1-on-1 calls using the link above. We will focus on the one question you have about your website.

The reason this event is reoccurring here on Meetup is to let you know the WordPress Help Desk events are still available. Before quarantine, this was an event hosted in Raleigh once per month for two hours. Now, this is a 1-on-1 video conference call scheduled for 20 minute blocks multiple times throughout the month.

There will be no link shared for a group call with this event. The WordPress Help Desk events have become 1-on-1 video conference calls which can be scheduled using the link above.

----FAQ----

Where is the link to join the call?
- If you are looking for a link to join a group call, there isn't one. These events have moved to 1-on-1 scheduled appointments. When you schedule your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to join your 1-on-1 call.

Why can't I get into the Zoom call?
- Please check the date and time in the confirmation email for your scheduled 1-on-1 call.

Why is this event repeating each morning, but there are no available appointment times this morning?
- These calls are scheduled in advance. If there is no time available today, you can book your call for the next available time.

What is the point of having these events on Meetup if we are scheduling 1-on-1 calls with another calendar?
- These events were held in-person with 20 - 50 people attending once per month. Unfortunately, hosting large group in-person events like this would be irresponsible right now. We tried hosting group calls some weeks ago and those did not go well. In a group call, one person has their question addressed while the others wait. After that one person gets the answer to their question, they drop off the call. The other people on the call feel ignored and become frustrated because they spend most of their time waiting. To solve this problem, we are now scheduling brief 1-on-1 calls to work directly on your WordPress question without the wait. The Meetup events are published to remind you that these Help Desk events are still available to help you with your website.

If you have a slow WordPress powered website, or you're working on a WordPress website you want to load faster, this Meetup is for you.

We'll look at three websites that were slow and we kicked them into high gear.

One website's home page was taking 7.1 seconds to load. GTMetrix gave it a 71% PageSpeed score. Barely a C.

After the speed tune-up, GTMetrix gave it an A with a 96% PageSpeed score. And it loaded at 2.4 seconds, 2.95 times faster than it used to.

Most of the speed increase was due to installing a few plugins. Which we'll discuss.

This presentation is mainly for beginners to intermediate WordPress users.

No coding knowledge needed.

Free virtual event.

This month we have a special presentation by one of our own, Jeremy Techtmann, about WordPress Block Patterns. Read all about it:

~~~~~~~~~~~
Block Patterns

Coming to WordPress 5.5 in August of 2020 the block editor will be introducing block patterns. Block patterns are predefined block layouts easily added to a page with one click. Once added to a page a block pattern can be edited and manipulated just as you would any other block. Block patterns can follow the basic styling of your theme or for more advanced users can be styled with extra css.

WordPress 5.5 will come with several pre-made block patterns but with a little php in the functions.php file you can create you own.
~~~~~~~~~~~

We'll meet at the usual time of 9:00-10:30 AM on the third Wednesday of the month via Zoom.

*If you'd like to attend, register for the meeting,* then you will receive a link to attend the meeting.

People with all levels of WordPress experience are welcome.

I look forward to seeing your tiny, smiling face in a grid at this WordPress meetup, and to hearing Jeremy teach us about WordPress Block Patterns! ; )

Where is the link to join the call?
- If you are looking for a link to join a group call, there isn't one. These events have moved to 1-on-1 scheduled appointments. When you schedule your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to join your 1-on-1 call.

Why can't I get into the Zoom call?
- Please check the date and time in the confirmation email for your scheduled 1-on-1 call.

Why is this event repeating each morning, but there are no available appointment times this morning?
- These calls are scheduled in advance. If there is no time available today, you can book your call for the next available time.

What is the point of having these events on Meetup if we are scheduling 1-on-1 calls with another calendar?
- These events were held in-person with 20 - 50 people attending once per month. Unfortunately, hosting large group in-person events like this would be irresponsible right now. We tried hosting group calls some weeks ago and those did not go well. In a group call, one person has their question addressed while the others wait. After that one person gets the answer to their question, they drop off the call. The other people on the call feel ignored and become frustrated because they spend most of their time waiting. To solve this problem, we are now scheduling brief 1-on-1 calls to work directly on your WordPress question without the wait. The Meetup events are published to remind you that these Help Desk events are still available to help you with your website.

If you have a particular Wordpress question, new idea, or just want to know how to get started, we're here to help. If you have a problem you need reviewed, please come prepared with your domain name and the related username/login information necessary to access your site.

Even if you don't have a domain name, or know what any of that is, we can start from there. All levels of inquiry are welcome.

Online event

🖥 View Streaming

¡Sign up!

Topic

Media - video, audio, photos, images, and more. How do you prepare media for your site? How do you manage your media in WordPress? What are some problems folks get into and how do you get out of them‽ Join us as we learn about uploading, file formats, editing, hosting, galleries and more.

Location

Wherever you are, as you come. We're doing this month's Meetup virtually. RSVP for the link to join.

Agenda

Since many folks attend with questions in-hand we want to make it easier for them to get answers. Instead of making people wait till the end of the evening to ask their questions, we're going to dedicate the first 30 minutes of the evening to questions and conversation. Need help with something? Have a cool site to share? The is the time.

Roughly:

6:30pm to 7:00pm - Question & Answer time. Come to help others, ask questions, and socialize before the main event.

7pm to 7:15pm - Introductions and housekeeping.

7:15pm to 8:30pm - Main topic of the evening and presentations.

You'll want to find each other at the Panera -- it's open until 9, so a 7 pm start time gives you two good hours to talk, and the internet is better there too!

The WordPress Community team is looking for some folks to take the lead in hands-on organizing your Meetups, but if you're reading this and thinking, "I've got to be a better organizer than this lame broad. At least I live on the proper side of the Continental Divide!" Then I invite you to come take over.

It could be the start of a beautiful new Meetup experience, or a whole new career!

Either way, since I'm in St. Louis, you probably should start meeting at the Panera (or as I call it, the St. Louis Bread Company 😜) and talking among yourselves. If you have specific questions about themes, the block editor or typography, please feel free to drop me a text. That's far and away the best way to get my attention for anything!

For the foreseeable future, the WordPress Help Desk will be moved online. These events have worked well for the past couple of months, and many people have fixed their website during a 1-on-1 WordPress Help Desk call.

To schedule a 1-on-1 WordPress Help Desk call, simply use the calendar found here: https://optsus.com/wp-help-desk/

Confused? Please read this entire description including the TLDR and FAQ sections to clear up any confusion about changes as this event moves from in-person to online.

Bring your laptop because we are going to help you with your website!

Are you trying to figure out how to fix your website using only YouTube videos?

Frustrated by support forum posts that are dated from 5+ years ago?

We will have at least one WordPress professional available to answer questions and help you work on your website.

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

I'm adding to the description because a couple of people have been confused by these events. The link above is for you to schedule the WordPress Help Desk 1-on-1 call. The available times are generally from 9 AM until 10 AM, which is why this event is scheduled for that time. However, this is not a group call.

When the world shifted to hosting events from home, back in March, I tested this as a group call. As people received answers for their questions about WordPress, they left the call. This frustrated the people who had to wait and listen to the other questions and answers during the call. I don't want to waste everyone's time in this way.

At an in-person event, it's possible to work in a group and ask questions as they come up. However, this does not transition into a video conference call very well. Instead, I have opened up my calendar to schedule 1-on-1 calls using the link above. We will focus on the one question you have about your website.

The reason this event is reoccurring here on Meetup is to let you know the WordPress Help Desk events are still available. Before quarantine, this was an event hosted in Raleigh once per month for two hours. Now, this is a 1-on-1 video conference call scheduled for 20 minute blocks multiple times throughout the month.

There will be no link shared for a group call with this event. The WordPress Help Desk events have become 1-on-1 video conference calls which can be scheduled using the link above.

----FAQ----

Where is the link to join the call?
- If you are looking for a link to join a group call, there isn't one. These events have moved to 1-on-1 scheduled appointments. When you schedule your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to join your 1-on-1 call.

Why can't I get into the Zoom call?
- Please check the date and time in the confirmation email for your scheduled 1-on-1 call.

Why is this event repeating each morning, but there are no available appointment times this morning?
- These calls are scheduled in advance. If there is no time available today, you can book your call for the next available time.

What is the point of having these events on Meetup if we are scheduling 1-on-1 calls with another calendar?
- These events were held in-person with 20 - 50 people attending once per month. Unfortunately, hosting large group in-person events like this would be irresponsible right now. We tried hosting group calls some weeks ago and those did not go well. In a group call, one person has their question addressed while the others wait. After that one person gets the answer to their question, they drop off the call. The other people on the call feel ignored and become frustrated because they spend most of their time waiting. To solve this problem, we are now scheduling brief 1-on-1 calls to work directly on your WordPress question without the wait. The Meetup events are published to remind you that these Help Desk events are still available to help you with your website.

Recurring income is a dream for a lot of people. There are so many ways that you can do this. But technically, how do you do it on your WooCommerce site?

Whether it's creating recurring income around a new product or service, or using your existing products, the subscriptions extension is a powerful option.

In this virtual meetup I will walk you through the subscription extension, show you a few options of how to extend it with other plugins or extensions, and we will chat about ways to create recurring income. Come with your questions and ideas.

Again, this meetup is virtual. Once you RSVP a link will be visible to you.

Signed up 18 of 50.

PRESENTATION OVERVIEW
Corporate social media has been dominating the online space so significantly that the newest generation of Internet users now thinks that is what the "web" actually is. Fortunately, with WordPress as your platform, you can not only take back your online identity and presence, but you can use it to have a richer and fuller experience than the locked-down experience you get with the limits of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.

Chris will explore some open web standards and technologies that open up WordPress to allow site-to-site interactions and easier posting functionality through the magic of a small handful of simple plugins. These are simple enough building blocks that the beginning WordPress user can do some powerful new things with their sites but are also rich enough that senior developers can build and extend them or find uses for them for business sites and even e-commerce.

SPEAKER BIO
Chris Aldrich has been using WordPress since the Art Blakey release and uses it to run a handful of various sites including his primary web presence at https://boffosocko.com. Outside of his day job in the entertainment industry, he's interested in abstract mathematics, big history, and is an advocate of the IndieWeb movement...

MONTHLY HAPPINESS BAR
As always, we'll get the latest news and information going on in WordPress and answer your questions in a mini-version of a Happiness Bar to help you and assist you with challenges if possible.

NOTE: We'll meet online with details shared about the event to those who RSVP (for security reasons).

We've been having Contributor Days for several years now. In 2019 I thought I'd about gotten the handle on how to manage a one-off event for people who are not regular contributors. Then 2020 happened and now we're doing everything online. I'm working out the more exact details about how to handle a virtual contributor day, but the basic pattern will be the same...except we can't do all the extra party stuff.

We will definitely start with the group together on Zoom and introductory material about how to contribute. Register to get the Zoom link. Password should be embedded, but you know where to find me if you need it.

******************************
You don’t have to be on the core team to contribute to WordPress. There are all kinds of ways to help out: answering questions in the support forum, writing and editing documentation, making translations, helping with accessibility, and more.

Join us for a special extended session and give back to the WordPress community. We’ll show you how to do it and then get down to work. All you need is a WordPress.org (not .com) login (https://wordpress.org/support/register.php) and a laptop.

The first hour will be a contributor onboarding session to get people set up.

For the foreseeable future, the WordPress Help Desk will be moved online. These events have worked well for the past couple of months, and many people have fixed their website during a 1-on-1 WordPress Help Desk call.

To schedule a 1-on-1 WordPress Help Desk call, simply use the calendar found here: https://optsus.com/wp-help-desk/

Confused? Please read this entire description including the TLDR and FAQ sections to clear up any confusion about changes as this event moves from in-person to online.

Bring your laptop because we are going to help you with your website!

Are you trying to figure out how to fix your website using only YouTube videos?

Frustrated by support forum posts that are dated from 5+ years ago?

We will have at least one WordPress professional available to answer questions and help you work on your website.

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

I'm adding to the description because a couple of people have been confused by these events. The link above is for you to schedule the WordPress Help Desk 1-on-1 call. The available times are generally from 9 AM until 10 AM, which is why this event is scheduled for that time. However, this is not a group call.

When the world shifted to hosting events from home, back in March, I tested this as a group call. As people received answers for their questions about WordPress, they left the call. This frustrated the people who had to wait and listen to the other questions and answers during the call. I don't want to waste everyone's time in this way.

At an in-person event, it's possible to work in a group and ask questions as they come up. However, this does not transition into a video conference call very well. Instead, I have opened up my calendar to schedule 1-on-1 calls using the link above. We will focus on the one question you have about your website.

The reason this event is reoccurring here on Meetup is to let you know the WordPress Help Desk events are still available. Before quarantine, this was an event hosted in Raleigh once per month for two hours. Now, this is a 1-on-1 video conference call scheduled for 20 minute blocks multiple times throughout the month.

There will be no link shared for a group call with this event. The WordPress Help Desk events have become 1-on-1 video conference calls which can be scheduled using the link above.

----FAQ----

Where is the link to join the call?
- If you are looking for a link to join a group call, there isn't one. These events have moved to 1-on-1 scheduled appointments. When you schedule your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to join your 1-on-1 call.

Why can't I get into the Zoom call?
- Please check the date and time in the confirmation email for your scheduled 1-on-1 call.

Why is this event repeating each morning, but there are no available appointment times this morning?
- These calls are scheduled in advance. If there is no time available today, you can book your call for the next available time.

What is the point of having these events on Meetup if we are scheduling 1-on-1 calls with another calendar?
- These events were held in-person with 20 - 50 people attending once per month. Unfortunately, hosting large group in-person events like this would be irresponsible right now. We tried hosting group calls some weeks ago and those did not go well. In a group call, one person has their question addressed while the others wait. After that one person gets the answer to their question, they drop off the call. The other people on the call feel ignored and become frustrated because they spend most of their time waiting. To solve this problem, we are now scheduling brief 1-on-1 calls to work directly on your WordPress question without the wait. The Meetup events are published to remind you that these Help Desk events are still available to help you with your website.

Hello Reno WordPress Members,

As you know our meetup location has always been at the Reno Collective, which like everywhere else, has been closed these past three months. As of June 8th, the Reno Collective reopened to MEMBERS only. They plan to stay closed to the general public for the foreseeable future.

Secondly, the WordPress Community Organizers have set guidelines for in-person events, meetups, and WordCamps, especially where community transmission is still a problem. These guidelines are in effect through the 4th quarter of 2020.

Given the circumstances and temporary closure of our usual venue (The Reno Collective) and assuming there is member interest, we could move our meetup online.

Therefore if you think an online meetup would be advantageous, then let's do this. We will keep to our established schedule — fourth Wednesday of each month, 6-8 pm, except we'll meet online.

Ping us on Meetup if you have any questions.

Stay healthy and safe out there.

When building websites, are you still choosing a random theme to get the look you are going for? Standardize on one theme and one page builder for all of your website builds and achieve almost any look and feel you can imagine using Beaver Builder Theme and Page Builder. In this working presentation, Jennifer will give you a tour of the Beaver Builder theme and Page Builder live and in action. Jennifer will also show you a few add-ons as well to get your imagination flowing and spark your excitement for building out amazing websites. Join us for this hand-on session that will leave you energized and excited!

About Jennifer DeRosa:
In 1993, Jennifer DeRosa, began taking HTML classes at night for fun at Providence College while she sold wine during the day. Building websites was a love of hers, and she began hand coding websites in notepad for her extended family so that they could all keep up on what was going on with each other after logging on through dial up to AOL, Earthlink or some other service.

After attending the Chubb Institute of Technology, Jennifer began a career in the IT industry, working as Novell Engineer, desk support technician, consultant, and managing teams of help desks in Fairfield County and New York City. During this time, Jennifer continued to develop websites for “fun” for new clients and for family members. Jennifer formed TechCare, LLC and Executive Pages, LLC in the late 1990s, and branched out as her own consultant to a plethora of clients in lower Fairfield County.

As the technology industry grew and became more specialized, Jennifer decided to follow her love and expertise of building websites and focused exclusively on this field. TechCare now specializes in building easy to navigate, beautiful, and SEO optimized sites on the WordPress platform. She has built a team of extremely capable, technical, and smart developers and designers to get the job done correctly for her clients.

ZOOM LINK: We will email out the zoom link to all registered attendees.

HOSTS:Lisa, Meryl and Winstina

ABOUT Women of WordPress NYC (WoWPNYC) EVENTS: Our goal is to support women (cis gender and those who identify as women) developers, designers, and bloggers who are invested in their desires of using the WordPress platform for professional and personal goals.

Our focus is on empowering our women-identified Meetup members working with plugins, themes, in eCommerce, branding, marketing, journalism, business, entrepreneurship and more.
