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.

"Check Out" the Divi Library (Virtual Meeting)

For our October Divi NYC Meetup, we welcome guest presenter, Cammy Farone, co-organizer of the Divi Atlanta Meetup, who will help you "check out" the incredible Divi Library and how this ultimate web design toolkit will save your hours of design time.

* We'll explore how to access and manage your library.

* You'll learn how to create and save collections of modules, pages, and templates that you can reuse without re-creating them. This includes an introduction to "global modules" and "selective sync" features.

* We'll delve into how to import and export library items and how to use premade layouts.

- - - - -
This will be an INTERACTIVE demonstration. You are encouraged to have your website open and follow along. Also, bring any questions or tips you may have about using Divi Libraries.
- - - - -

ABOUT DIVI LIBRARY
The Divi Library is a web design toolkit that allows you to store your favorite layouts, sections, rows, or modules for later use. Whenever you save an item to your Divi Library, you can access it easily from within the module window when adding a new layout, module, section, or row to the page. Once you have developed a stellar library of custom modules, rows, and sections, you can export these items and import them when creating new websites to speed up your design process.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Having been in web development, graphic design, and marketing for over 28 years, Cammy Farone has become an advocate for Divi, sharing her passion for the theme with other WordPress users at Meetup Groups and WordCamps in the Atlanta area. "I enjoy the creative journey life brings and Divi gives me an adventure every day." When not building with Divi, Cammy is an avid player of Texas Hold'em and enjoys gardening and nature photography with her husband of 36 years.

This presentation is a PART 2 to a August 3, 2020 presentation: https://www.meetup.com/pdx-wp/events/271864865/. Be sure to catch up by watching that presentation at https://ambient.vision/ultimate-guide-to-wordpress-security-part-one/

In this November 2nd Zoom presentation, David Schargel will be discussing security topics that are considered to be beyond-the-basics. This presentation assumes that you have a beginner or intermediate knowledge of security. It will cover intermediate & advanced best practices, tools, and techniques to better secure your websites and increase personal and organizational security.

Most of our Meetups are intended for a wide range of users but this one will focus on more demanding topics. Regardless if you are looking to refine your security practices or a long-time system administrator on their own servers, David will make sure you have some takeaways. If you believe that the best security comes from building upon the knowledge you already have, then this is the Meetup for you.

If you do not need help with security, please join us anyway! There is always something to learn and perhaps you'll find a tidbit or two that will engage you.

The "Security Basics" presentation that you may want to watch beforehand is https://ambient.vision/ultimate-guide-to-wordpress-security-part-one/. This Meetup builds on that earlier presentation.

---

Note: This will not be at our usual location, it will be an online event using Zoom. If you don't already have an account, you can sign up for free at https://zoom.us. You can download the desktop software, use a browser extension, or download the mobile app. If you haven't used Zoom before, please get set up and familiar with it in advance. We recommend you upgrade to the latest version. If you're using the desktop software, you may need to check for upgrades manually.

For added security, the Zoom link will not be public. You must RSVP to see it.

Along the bottom of the Zoom window, there are buttons to mute/unmute yourself, enable/disable your video, access the Participants panel, and access the Chat panel, among other things.

For security and to prevent interruptions, everyone else will be prevented from screen sharing during the meetup. Your audio and video *should* be off by default when you join the call, but you may want to double check when you join. You can unmute yourself and turn on your video, but please note that you may be included in the recording. If you unmute yourself, please only do so temporarily, while you're asking your question. This helps reduce background noise in the recording.

If you have a question, please go to the Participants panel and click the button to "raise your hand". Our presenter will take breaks to answer questions, and our moderator will call on whoever has their hand raised. You can unmute yourself while you ask your question, and then mute yourself and lower your hand after you're done.

There's also a Chat panel. You can use the chat to introduce yourself and converse with others, but if you have a question for the presenter, remember to "raise your hand". We won't be monitoring the chat as frequently.

We'll record the presentation and link to the video in the comments once it's been processed.

If time permits, we'll open up the conversation after the presentation. We encourage people to converse in our Portland Slack group for general WordPress discussion at any time. You can join here: https://join.slack.com/t/wpportland/shared_invite/enQtNDIwMDY4MTQzODYyLTI4ZTcyMzVjOWRhNjI0YTNmNDg2NGI1N2I3Yzc2ZGI1NDg3NjQ1N2ExMzlkZDIzNDQxM2FmY2E0NWQwZGQ3YzM

RESCHEDULED TO MONDAY< NOVEMBER 2nd

2020 has been an incredibly strange and brutal business year. Traditional retailers have reacted to the on-going pandemic by cutting or reducing the traditional “Black-Friday" sales that would cram their stores with bargain-crazed shoppers, ignoring social distancing. The Big-Box stores are getting in front of Black Friday expectations. The sales aren't canceled, but shopping will look different, offering increased online specials over a period of days. The goal is to encourage their customers to go for "online doorbusters” deals.

Thanks to major retailers, “Black Friday Creep” is real, expect Cyber Monday sales to kick off before the Monday after Thanksgiving. Cyber Monday seems to be morphing into "Cyber Week", but you still have time to prepare your WooCommerce Store for the 2020 “Sales Season.

Toyin Akinmusuru is a veteran of dozens of successful Black Friday and Cyber Monday campaigns and has some chilling “BFCM Lessons Learned” from campaigns that did not meet expectations. Toyin will demonstrate how a Cyber Week Checklist and a review of your site’s Special Events Related Editorial Calendar will help you prepare for a successful Cyber Week promotion.

Additionally, we will address some of the technical issues you need to plan to manage the increased traffic to your WooCommerce store and share some cautionary wisdom about the ability to scale during peak buying cycles. It is time to get your WooCommerce store ready for the seasonal rush. We look forward to seeing you on Zoom.

NEO West WordPress Monthly MeetUp - Gutenberg Workshop

¡Sign up!

Signed up 19 of 75.

This talk is a starter one, that assumes a basic knowledge of WordPress and leads you through the building process, not writing the content. In just under an hour, you’ll have 3 pages that get you started with your WordPress site. While the types of pages on content on those pages can be transferable to any website system, this course focuses on WordPress and uses the Gutenberg Blocks to get it up and running.

Depending on time, we might dive into some of the other features and I'm happy to hear specific things you want to learn. At a minimum, the goal of this talk is to come out of this with:
• An About page (text, images, video)
• A Contact Page (forms, contact info)
• Home page (menus, setting the blog or static page)

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.

This month we are excited to have two members of our community give demos on how they use If This Then That (IFFTT), and Zapier to automate their workflow. Do you use automation tools? Do you want to know how to include these tools in your work? Join us for a demo and and discussion.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Do you make your living using WordPress to create websites for other people’s businesses? This new Meetup is for you! We are not about themes or plugins, rather we'll talk about aspects of having a freelance business based in WP. We’ll discuss the successes and challenges of running a small business, share stories, ask questions, share tools & resources, brainstorm ideas and generally create community for those of us who typically work in isolation.

We normally meet on the first Thursday of each month from 10-noon at the Wallingford Good Shepherd Center, Room 221. It’s not far from the freeway and has free parking. We will be meeting virtually for the forseeable future.

PS – Please note that this Meetup is specifically for those with a freelance business that relies on WordPress and not intended for those who have their business website made in WordPress. There are many other Meetups for WordPress users.

Headless WordPress at WP Engine

Over the past few years, we've heard from our customers that they want to host the front-end of their headless WordPress sites with WP Engine rather than needing another account at a different provider. In this talk, I'll discuss what is here today and give a little insight into where we're heading with the platform in order to make WordPress the best headless CMS.

For the demo, we'll walk-through a Next.js app that uses GraphQL, Custom Post Types, and Advanced Custom Fields and deploy it to the platform.

Note: If you have questions or topics outside of the main topic, don’t worry, you won’t leave without the chance to talk about them.

ABOUT THIS EVENT
A note from Kathy:

Throughout the pandemic, I’ve been running group events that give people a chance to find connection and community in difficult times and that re-create the feel of real-world events. I’ve worked hard on the design and facilitation of these to make them meaningful for everyone – whether you love stuff like this, or you sometimes find events like this a little awkward.

The experience will be somewhere between a cocktail party and a really great conference. You’ll be able to find people who share your interests, chat in small groups, and move fluidly between conversations.

HERE ARE SOME THINGS TO KNOW

> The event will take place Tuesday, November 10th, starting promptly at 11:30 AM eastern time, and ending at 1:00.

> It is an event with a beginning, middle, and end. If you are coming, we ask that you be on time, ready to start at eleven-thirty. We’ll open the doors at 11:20 or so, so you can check your tech, etc. We can’t guarantee you’ll be let in if you show up late.

> Parts of the event will be structured and facilitated, parts will be more free-form.

> You will be asked to identify the menu item you will bring to share: appetizer, soup/salad, bread, side dish, main entree, dessert. Earn bonus points if you have an online recipe or a digital copy of your grandmother's recipe.

> The party itself will last about 60 minutes, followed by a 20 minute group conversation. We expect to be done by around 1:30 (though you can stick around after if you like).

> This is a participatory, cameras-on event. You’ll spend most of your time in small Zoom video-chat groups, talking with other people who share your interests. Come ready to participate!

> There are some tech requirements: We suggest that you log on using a computer, not a tablet or phone. Whatever platform you are using, you will need to be on the very latest version of Zoom. We’ll be relying heavily on some features that are *only* available in the latest release.

This event is free, but you need to register in advance, and space is limited.

Hope to see you there!

Kathy

IT'S MY JOB to think about how to structure social events in ways that help people connect.

I’m a professional facilitator of meetings and conferences, where I try to maximize real human connection. As a teacher, coach, and consultant, I help people learn to communicate better about difficult and important topics. As the Covid-19 pandemic took over our lives, I started doing lots of work online, mostly serious events about hope and despair during the pandemic, and how to work from home while homing from work.

It's been a while since we had a Divi meetup (sorry, friends!), so we would love to get together virtually and catch up and see what everyone has been up to and what you all have designed and developed with Divi recently. This meetup will be virtual, so we can all share our screens pretty easily. I'd love to share what we have been up to as well and talk about some of the recent features that have been added.

If you're a Code Louisville student or new to development with WordPress, our November meetup will be a great event to join.

This month we'll begin with a short talk about developing WordPress plugins. Plugins are a best practice for extending the core functionality of WordPress. Whether it's providing new post types, new Gutenberg blocks, a mini tweak, or a whole application unto itself, by developing a plugin you give a WordPress user extra features. Where last week's discussion was an intro to WordPress front end, this is more the back end.

Following the talk will be plenty of time for Q&A and general discussion like we've had the last several months.

----

Every second Tuesday of the month, the WordPress Louisville community meets up at the Louisville Free Public Library's (LFPL) Main branch.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, LFPL is currently not hosting in-person events. This meeting will instead be held online. RSVP to receive a link to attend.

After the technical difficulties the last couple months, this meeting will be on Zoom instead of Google Meet.

This meetup is all about the speed of your WordPress website. We'll go over different optimization strategies including caching, image compression, CDN's, and online tools to help identify bottlenecks. You'll learn the advantages and pitfalls of different plugins and software to help you focus your optimization efforts on what matters most for your website.

After this meetup you will be provided a list of improvements that you can apply to your website. You'll also have a better understanding to help explain benefits to your own clients.

Topics will include:

1. Debugging tools like Query Monitor and many features of Chrome's Developer Tools to uncover problems, and verify when they are resolved.

2. Reporting websites like Google Pagespeed and Pingdom

3. Caching systems like Opcache and Redis

4. Learn about combining and minifying scripts and stylesheets

5. Image compression, and automating the process with WordPress plugins

For each of these topics I will present do-it-yourself options with free plugins, and a glance at premium plugins.

The presentation along with a checklist you can use will be made available after the meetup.

Our presenter will be Radley Sustaire, who has been a developer for over 12 years.

How being a Project Manager has made me a better designer - with Chris Ford

Community: WordPress Carlsbad

Online event

Chris Ford has spent nearly 25 years seeing where the internet will take her next. Right now she's doing a little project management and a little design at Reaktiv Studios, a WordPress VIP partner.

Description:
With nearly 20 years of experience as an agency and freelance designer, I took a hard pivot into project management five years ago. Moving from Adobe to Asana seemed like a huge departure, but I soon realized I was still designing user experiences and processes. Recently, I've worked on some design projects at Reaktiv, and have discovered that 5 years of project planning, forecasting, budgets, and communication have made me a much better designer. At this meetup, I'll share the lessons learned as a project manager and how they've improved my success as a designer.

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.

Building a Divi site is one thing. MAINTAINING it and making sure it's a continuous, well-oiled machine is another!

Whether you have built a personal site or blog, or build sites for clients, it's important that you spend time on site maintenance and upkeep. Performing regular "tune-ups" and audits on a regular basis helps ensure that your site is not only secure from hackers, but also healthy and running as it should.

Divi users are encouraged to jump into a discussion about how to best take care of your Divi sites, and the tools available to make sure your sites are performing their best. Topics include:
- Updating WordPress, the Divi Theme, and plugins
- Online tools to audit your site and help determine what needs fixing
- Maintenance checklists -- what should you be checking weekly/monthly?

**Divi Sacramento welcomes you, regardless of your level of experience using Divi. This is the place for everyone to share and learn.**

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

ONLINE ZOOM EVENT

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 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 on Zoom at 7pm. We look forward to seeing you!

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.

SEO is over-analyzed and over-explained. But it really comes down to 1 thing: how well can you connect your website to your audience? The gap between your website and your audience can be difficult to bridge. Fortunately, the best way to connect those two sides is through something that doesn’t require technical knowledge -- content marketing.

In this talk, Mark Rogers will walk attendees through everything they need to know to build a content marketing program that grabs attention from search engines. He’ll walk attendees through creating a content strategy, conducting keyword research, writing and optimizing content for SEO, and reviewing success metrics.

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.

Even though most of us at a WordPress users group understand that our website is our best salesperson we have a hard time following our own advice. We use WordPress, so we already have the best foundation, but how can we use content to speak to our audiences in a better way? How can we use content to help our customers succeed in their business? Should you start offering content as an add-on service to your current offerings? In this session, Lindsey Miller will answer all of these questions PLUS give some simple tips to creating better content that drives organic traffic.

Colors are the first thing people notice when they visit your site, and your color scheme can make a huge impact on both style and consistency.

Experienced designers of all backgrounds will tell you, color schemes require a profound amount of thought and consideration in the web creator's design workflow.

When it comes to branding, specifically, color schemes are almost always a key component in a brand’s design system or style guide, which is a set of guidelines that defines a brand’s personality, brand messaging, visual assets, and content assets. Branding, as we know, is one of the most crucial components in the website design process. As such, a defined, carefully crafted color palette will solidify our brand identity so that our websites and their content become a polished, professional brand asset.

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!

Online: WordPress Help Desk

Community: WordPress Raleigh

Online event

¡Sign up!

Signed up 0 of 20.

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.

Welcome Divi Seattle!

Just a few months ago, Divi released an awesome new set of Sticky design settings. These allow you to easily create sticky elements that fade in and out depending on your scroll behavior. We often see this featured on custom websites or more complex websites, but now we can accomplish it easily with Divi! This meetup will cover how to use the new feature, best practices, and examples for different modules and use cases.

If we get done early, we’ll be available to answer any *Divi-specific* questions you have regarding your websites.

You’ve got a WordPress website, that’s great! Now you’re probably wondering how to get more people to see and visit it with all the hard work you put into it. Thankfully there’s plugins and strategy you can use to boost your search engine ranking, and you’ll be learning more about those during this presentation.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER - Jean Perpillant, Strategy Architect, jpDesignTheory.com
I started Design Theory in late 2008. With my background in IT, web design is a wonderful way to unleash my creativity.

Managing the team that we have is not only fun but a blessing.

Join us for a mid-morning coffee and to talk Elementor. We’re hosting Web creator, TV producer, business trainer, and award-winning entrepreneur Tonisha Tagoe who’ll share ideas on how to build your business with Elementor for WordPress.

-- BIO --
In from London, web creator, TV producer, business trainer, and award-winning entrepreneur — these are only a few of the hats that Tonisha Tagoe wears on a daily basis. Her passion for helping others succeed is one of the things that drives Elementor forward. And if she were CEO for one day, she would bring her dog to work.

As an enterprise educator, Tonisha has appeared on CNN, New York Times, and OK Magazine, just to name a few. Her strong work ethic helps to make Elementor one of the best website builders for WordPress users, and her contagious enthusiasm is changing the web as we know it.

As she likes to say, “Behind every focused woman is one hell of a story.”

If you look up Tonisha on social media, her profiles might make it seem like she is all about her business. In fact, she has amassed an impressive following of over 46,000 people across her social networks, with over 29 million views on her business development videos.

-- MEETING NOTES --

We'll also get the latest Elementor news and learning options for members with WordPress in Santa Clarita.

If you have an idea you'd like to discuss or present, leave a comment on the event page below.
