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.

Hasta la vista 2020.
Divi Tampa extends open arms and a hearty welcome to 2021!

Goals for this meetup:
Our meeting goals are always flexible as needed, but here’s a preliminary agenda for this meetup.
Many members attending may be new to our meetup, so don’t be shy. Come and explore some interesting ways members use Divi on their sites. Members can present their sites and we, as a group, can provide valuable informative feedback on ways of fine tuning the site visitor experience. We always enjoy learning from each other as we move forward in our own journeys of site development.

And BTW, if anyone is interested in being a Co-Organizer for Divi Meetup Tampa, speak up and we'll initiate the process with Elegant Themes. This is a great and fun group and I'd welcome the help. And we already have a wonderful location for in-person meetings once this pandemic thing becomes history.

Location:
Your most comfortable chair. This is a virtual meeting!
If you have trouble connecting at the specified meeting time, try emailing me at [masked]

Registration Form - there will be a 3 simple questions about who you are (name, role and organization) just for reference and to help keep this Meetup from being spammed.

WHAT IS THE DIVI THEME BUILDER?
The Divi Theme Builder is the interface within Divi that allows you to use the Divi Builder to construct theme templates and assign those custom templates to pages or posts across your website. With the Theme Builder, you have complete control over every single element of your website.

Nelson will provide an overview of the Theme Builder and show us how it is used, why to use it, and provide us with examples and use cases.

AGENDA
5:15 pm EST - meet and greet
5:30 - Nelson’s presentation
Q&A to follow.

NOTE:
If you have any questions for Nelson that you’d like to have covered, please post them in the comment section below. Of course, questions will also be taken during the Meetup.

ABOUT NELSON MILLER
Nelson began using WordPress in 2010 when he built his first website for his uncle’s orchard and farm market. He began handling all the advertising, graphic design, social media, etc.

Since then, Nelson has worked on hundreds of websites using WordPress and of course our favorite theme, Divi! After officially starting Pee-Aye Creative Co. in April of 2018, Nelson and his wife Tashia worked together to grow their local client base and developed a love for helping small businesses.

With his love for teaching, Nelson has become known as The Divi Teacher and is one of the central figures in the Divi community. His blog posts and video tutorials are extremely popular, viewed by tens of thousands of people each week at https://peeayecreative.com. He also runs The Divi Teacher Facebook group which provides a friendly place for Divi users to hang out and share their experiences, tips, and questions about using Divi in their business and marketing.

Along with the teaching, Nelson creates Divi products like plugins, child themes, and layouts.

Please join us on Thursday, January 21 at 5:15 pm EST for this important and informative Meetup. We hope to see you there.

ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Troubleshooting WordPress can be a daunting task. It's hard to know where to start or what you're even looking at when something goes wrong. Especially if you don't know a plugin from a theme or anything in between!

Micah Wood will present "A Detective's Guide to Troubleshooting WordPress" and finally put to rest your doubts and fears about troubleshooting your own WordPress website. With just a bit of confidence, logic, and methodical sleuthing (plus a healthy dose of Google), anyone can become the master of their own website domain and track down the culprit!

ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Micah Wood is a WordPress Developer at Bluehost. A professional WordPress developer for over a decade, Micah has worked on sites for Fortune 100 companies, has released over a dozen WordPress plugins, is a frequent speaker at WordCamps, co-organizes the WordPress Gwinnett meetup, is a co-host on the WP Square One podcast and shares his knowledge by teaching at SkillShare and blogging on WordPress development topics.

ATTENDING THE MEETUP
This event will be ONLINE ONLY at https://meet.google.com/axp-rwpg-zde due to current guidelines on restricting human contact during the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be broadcast at 6:00 pm on Thursday, January 21st as a live Google Meet.

Participants are asked to mute their audio when the presentation begins. Please hold all questions until the end. After the presentation concludes, the presenter, organizers, and members of the meetup will be discussing the presentation, answering questions, and socializing in video conference mode.

This presentation will be recorded! We will post it to our YouTube channel, but without the interactive Q&A at the end.

Please subscribe now at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqesdRkxvQAolWo9v8dE11A to receive the notification of when this and future video-based meetup recordings are posted.

As an active member of the Champaign-Urbana Computer Users Group I invite you, as my guest, to attend a demonstration I will be co-presenting. If you have not already well explored the uses of Dev Tools this may be a useful introduction, even for non-developers. The presentation will likely start about 30 to 45 minutes into the Zoom meeting which will open 15 minutes early to allow the meeting to start promptly with greetings and general computer problems and solutions.

Summary: Mark Zinzow and Quentin Barnes will cover some basic and useful features of the Developer Tools included in all modern web browsers.

Mark will demonstrate ways to live edit any web page, how to download video and audio for offline use from pages that have no menus to do so, how to add tables or other html content to a Gmail message even though Gmail provides no menu or controls to do so, and touch on JavaScript, bookmarklets, user scripts, and more Dev Tools examples if time allows. Lecture notes are at: https://tinyurl.com/mzdevtools

Quentin will show how to find errors, performance, accessibility and security issues on web sites including red flags to watch for in online banking, discuss performance improvements from ad blockers, and cover Google Lighthouse.

I hope this may be especially helpful for new members.

It’s a Gutenberg World

As the block editor in WordPress matures, it has become an increasingly powerful tool for publishing and editing content. Like with any new flexible, adjustable product, the block editor can be a slightly confusing tool at first. How do I use it? Where do I adjust this setting? What is a block? What blocks can I use? What blocks should I not use? All of these questions and more are par for the course for folks getting their head around the new block editor, commonly referred to as Gutenberg.

For the first gathering of the year, three local Meetups are coming together for an evening we are calling "It's a Gutenberg World." The Lehigh Valley WordPress Meetup, the Philly WordPress Meetup, and the Philly 'burbs WordPress Meetup will gather on a single Zoom call to share recommendations for preferred Gutenberg blocks.

To set the stage for the recommendations we will have a 10-minute overview focused on introducing the new block editor, how it works, and the like.

A Block of 10 Blocks
Our plan is to have our local community share their recommendations for a combined total of 10 blocks or block libraries – with each recommendation lasting 5 minutes. (We aim to stay on top of time limits.)

We invite anyone to present to this combined meetup, but we certainly encourage folks in the local (and very much wider) Philly area to volunteer to present.

To volunteer to present, please contact your local meetup organizer.

The Scheduled Talks
We will fill in the names and recommendations as we pull them together.

An Intro to the Block Editor – TBC
Gutenberg Slides – Courtney Engle
Kadence Accordion Block – Andy Stitt
Media + Text Block – Birgit Pauli-Haack
Editors Kit – Kim White
Kadence Blocks’ Advanced Heading – Amy Letson
Divider and Spacer Blocks – Liam Dempsey
Recommendation #7 – TBC
Recommendation #8 – TBC
Recommendation #9 – TBC
Recommendation #10 – TBC

Capped by Zoom
Our paid Zoom accounts limit the number of meeting guests to 100. If you want to join us on the night, you will need to be one of the first to RSVP. Don't miss out!

Also, if you RSVP yes, but later realize or find that you are not available, please let us know so that we can welcome a full complement of WordPressers on the night.

Are you a blogger and/or DIY (do-it-yourselfers) looking to connect with others who are interested in building WordPress websites and blogs? Then this group may be for you!

We meet once a month to discuss what we're working on, help each other on any problems we're having, and share tips on steps that can make life easier.

This group is primarily bloggers with some experience with WordPress and blogging. If you are BRAND NEW to WordPress, we'd love to see you. We also recommend attending the WordPress Fundamentals MeetUp (meets on the third Saturday of most months), which will introduce you to this great platform and get you started on your path to blogging/website management.

The DIY User Group meets on the last Saturday of each month. We hope you can join us and will spread the word. There's plenty of free parking at the Wallingford Senior Center.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

It says that the Senior is Closed, will you still have the meetup?
Yep! I have a key and will be there setting up when you arrive. Please note that there is only one host for this meetup, so if I'm sick, I will send an email through MeetUp.com if I have to cancel.

I can't find the space!!!
We're in the lower level and the entrance is north of the parking lot. There will be signs.

Do I have to bring a computer?
Only if you want to show examples to the group to help facilitate the discussion or better explain an issue you're having.

The map shows downtown Seattle, where is the location?
Please join us at the Wallingford Senior Center, 4649 Sunnyside Ave N, #140 (lowest level), Seattle, WA. To make sure you end up at the right location, put "Wallingford Senior Center" in your search browser and Google Maps will direct you to the right place. Folks have been hit or miss when trying to navigate with the 4649 address.

I'm brand new to WordPress, is this the right MeetUp for me?
If you are new to WordPress, check out the WordPress Fundamentals Meetup. This is a great place to get an introduction to WordPress. Of course, we'd love to have you too.

Is this MeetUp only for Bloggers?
Nope! If you are a professional creating sites for clients, we'd love to have you join us to share your expertise and advice. Also, please be sure to join our Freelancer Meetup on the first Thursday of each month 10-12 AM.

Tables used to rule in Web Land, until better and more device-responsive website layout techniques were developed. Yet there will always be a need for tabular data in sites -- such as product-price grids in ecommerce.

WordPress has a new built-in table creator in the block editor. You knew that, right? What? oh, yeah, tables are boring we know -- but this hands-on demo will be fun and mercifully brief. There is room for 20 deserving guests at this table, so sign up early and often.

Join us for this hands-on Meetup event to learn how the current WordPress table block is cool -- but not quite up to Accessibility standards and what you can do about it. This is especially important if you have a web shop, unless you don't care about that huge percentage of the market that wants to buy from you but can't understand the tabular info due to its not being accessible.

======

Who should attend?

Our meetup is inclusive. This event is for people who love WordPress and Accessibility and want to share their knowledge, experience, and to meet other WordPress users in the area. Both experienced and beginner WordPress designers are encouraged to attend and participate.

We do have a few rules.

In line with the mission of WordPress, our meetup was established in keeping with the 5 Good Faith Rules on Make WordPress (https://bit.ly/GoodFaithRules). Also please check our Code of Conduct (https://bit.ly/2ZGhtnG). We’re a friendly bunch, creating a friendly, nurturing and encouraging environment to talk WordPress.

NO Sales pitches of your products or services to the group. NO pitches of any product that you receive a kickback or commission.

No legal discussion or advice, unless you are a practicing civil rights or disability rights attorney and not just playing one on TV . . .

There are a lot of smart people in this group who show up ready to help and answer beginner and advanced topics alike. We encourage everyone to lend their voice to the conversation, but even if you know all the answers, please let others contribute as well.

[NOTE: We want to limit this Meetup to 20 participants, so join soon . . . and also please update your RSVP if you later find that you cannot attend.]

One of our objectives is to introduce some of the captioning tools that are available to assist your meetings in being Accessible. We do not endorse any specific product we may introduce. Our intention is only to educate.

###

** A very special thank you to Sumner M. Davenport & Assoc. LLC for sponsoring the Zoom video conferencing services and LIVE captioning for this Meetup. **

WordPress is a huge, open-source project that depends upon a worldwide community of users to keep it moving forward. While it is a software package, you don't need to be a developer or coder fluent in PHP, javascript, HTML, or CSS to contribute. There is a role for people of all talents and skill sets to be involved and help shape and support the project.

During this meetup we'll talk about the importance of giving back to WordPress through a variety of methods, very few of which require high-level coding or programming skills. We'll highlight ways that designers, marketers, writers, videographers, teachers, and those who are bilingual can get involved with WordPress.

Then, of course, there are things like WordCamps and Meetups (like this one) to help connect you to the WP community, as well as support and assistance roles that can be undertaken at the time and place of your choosing.

The virtual meeting room opens at 6:30PM, and we'll give people a few minutes to login and get comfortable before the presentation begins around 6:45PM.

There will be time after the presentation for Q&A and WordPress help/troubleshooting, if any attendee is in need of help.

Takeaways:
° eCommerce is slated for further growth.
° Online sales will reach $4.5 trillion in 2021.
° Online shopping now enjoys greater customer trust.
° Online shopping processes have significantly improved.

Toyin Akinmusuru will discuss some of these eCommerce trends, cautionary tales, and some predictions to help you keep your business healthy during the year ahead.
° Attracting and retaining new customers is a top priority in 2021
° As department stores fade, eCommerce marketplaces will grow more
dominant
° DIY storefronts on eCommerce platforms will make setting up online
stores accessible to more businesses
° Resilient supply chains will be an 2021 essential
° More businesses will open D2C sales channels
° Use social media marketing to maximize your ad budget

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.

About the Pasadena WordPress Meetup

We've been around for 7+ years! Yeah. Believe the hype! Your hosts are Alex Vasquez, a website developer who runs DigiSavvy (https://digisavvy.com/), a boutique digital creative agency in LA.

Who can attend?

We welcome attendees from all backgrounds and experiences to come and participate. If you want to learn about WordPress and have questions; please attend. If you know all there is to know about WordPress you are welcome to attend because you are cooler than cool!

Format

For the first segment, we usually have a brief presentation (15+/- minutes) then we do a roundtable format of Q and A about WordPress, so please bring your questions. This is also a great opportunity to share your knowledge with others. Everyone that attends is expected to ask a question or answer a question. You're taking time to show up, so please, please, please get involved!!! I mean that! Your participation keeps this community going and growing.

The second part we network and it's also a time to assist one another with in-depth help regarding questions they may have.

FAQs

• Is this a place to talk about my services and products I sell?
No. There are networking groups specifically for that. We're not one of them.

• Is there a charge to attend?
NO! The only thing we ask is that you participate and be welcoming toward one another. It's a safe space to learn from one another.

• Can I talk about my business and things I sell?
Sure, but DON'T sell to the Meetup Group. There are other communities for that sort of stuff and it's not welcome here.

• Is this group right for me?
Personally, I think this group is for everyone. Some people feel overwhelmed by the sometimes (and sometimes often) technical/advanced nature of the questions posed. That's okay. There's a lot of that. But everyone of any skill level is encouraged to ask a question, no matter how "beginner" the question may seem.Don't be discouraged if you don't know the material discussed. Feel free to ask questions. The group is meant to empower and encourage.

• What if I know the answers to all the questions? Can I answer all of them?
There are a lot of smart people in this group who show up ready to help and answer beginner and advanced topics alike. Please encourage and allow everyone to lend their voice to the conversation, too.

Build a Great Divi Workflow: Part 1 - Establishing Your Workflow

Community: WordPress Pittsburgh

What’s the gist of this meetup?

I want to help you build Divi websites more efficiently and confidently, which is why I’d like to share my Divi workflow with you during this 2-part meetup. In part 1, we’ll talk about establishing your workflow. (Check out part 2 at https://www.meetup.com/Pittsburgh-WordPress-Developers-Designers/events/275102012/)

Great, but who are you?

Hi, I’m Mark Cunzolo. I co-own Peculiar Pxl, a branding and digital marketing agency in Pennsylvania, and I’ve been a Divi user for the past 5 years. For much of that time, I used Divi but knew I could be using it BETTER. After starting my own agency, getting neck-deep in client projects, and being forced to evolve, I now have a simple workflow I utilize to build with confidence and consistency.

What topics will I hear about?

- Creating a sitemap that serves as an ongoing measuring stick
- Building wireframes that focus on repeating structures
- Installing and building locally using a blueprint site
- Creating a style guide page
- Building a library of reusable blocks
- Constructing the header and footer
- Assembling pages using the development snowball (my own nerdy term)
- Finishing up with a launch checklist

Is this meetup right for me?

If you fit one of the following descriptions, I think you have something to gain by attending:
- You build multiple Divi websites for yourself or for clients
- You built your own website using Divi and now you’re thinking about redesigning it
- You use another great page builder but you’re thinking of trying out Divi instead

Heck, even if you don’t have any plans to use Divi, a discussion about web design workflow and additional resources is always helpful.

Is there anything else I need to know?

Just know that Divi is a paid page builder. I have no affiliate relationship with them, and you don’t need to purchase Divi to attend the meetup. You can learn more about Divi at https://www.elegantthemes.com/gallery/divi/, but a quick search for "WordPress page builders" will give you other options to choose from.

I may also utilize other tools like Adobe CC, Local by Flywheel, Chrome, and Sublime Text. These are only examples of tools you could use. None of them are required to participate.

We will be recording this meetup and will post it, along with the slides, on our website at https://wppittsburgh.com. Subscribe to our YouTube channel there to get notified when the recording drops!

Using a Custom Post Type (CPT) to create a fill-in-the-blanks Web Page

How do you create dozens of well designed web pages, for yourself or clients, without being a high end designer or developer in less time then it takes to cook a breakfast?

One way is to connect a custom post type (CPT) to a page builder or Gutenberg template.

I have used both Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) and PODS with Beaver Builder and Elementor to do this.

There are many reasons to create web pages using a CPT, I will list two:
1) Creating multiple landing pages
2) Creating multiple websites by cloning the template site and updating the content on the cloned site using the CPT as a fill-in form.

We'll walk through both scenarios and answer all your questions during the Meetup.

- CREATING MULTIPLE LANDING PAGES
There is no question that to have a more effective website you need to get more visitors. It is also a best practice to build an email list from people that visit your site.

So - if you agree (or don't) this is one way to make this work.

But first let me say that I always hesitate to provide my email address. I have to really believe the thing being offered is worth my time and attention; sometimes it is, most times it isn't.

But then there's more? More often than not, when I click NO, a well crafted website will make me another offer - and - if I decline that offer there may be another offer that I accept.

What's the point here?

The point is, if you want to grow your list (and you should) you most likely will need to make multiple offers before you get a YES. This is as much true for growing your list as it is for getting a customer or a date.

And, to make multiple offers on your website you'll need multiple landing pages. One really efficient way to do this is to create one template page and use the custom post type to fill in the content.

Yes, this may sound confusing. And yes, the initial setup takes a little longer than creating a standard page but, after the second page, the rest, as they say, is gravy.

- CREATING MULTPLE WEBSITES
Why would you do this? If you are creating websites for clients you have encountered the prospective client that wants a premium website but has a less-than-adequate budget. Using this technique you have an option to provide the a site at a lower price, that requires less work, but provides a site the client will love.

Again, the first one will take a little longer to create but by site number three you can be on the gravy train.

I will walk through how I did this last week using Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) and Elementor.

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.

Security: What you can do to protect your WordPress site (Session will be led by Lucy Lamp)

WordPress sites are often compromised by hackers. Smaller WordPress sites are preferred because they are easy targets. If your site is hacked it can be used to run all kinds of malicious activities, to install malware, send spam, attack other sites and more.

There are a number of things you can, and should do to protect your site. In this meetup we'll go over security tactics and 12 basic steps you can take to help secure your WordPress site.

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.

Case Study: Picking a Calendar Tool for your WordPress Site

The beauty and the curse of WordPress and its vibrant Community of plugin developers IS that if you need something built to do a specific task, someone has probably ALREADY been done. One example, is the calendar - many of us use Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Outlook, or a myriad of others - but what works best in a WordPress environment?

During this Meetup, we'll share some plugin basic do's and don'ts then look at a case study for a current project. We'll look at the current setup and its challenges, client and admin team requirements, integration with services like Eventbrite, Google Calendar, email tools, and three approaches to managing events. We'll compare the Modern Events Calendar, The Events Calendar, and WP Calendar against these concerns and share the results with you.

We'll welcome your suggestions and opinions or other solutions that work for you and why. We'll also look at the latest news, announcements, and open up the end of our meetup for questions, answers, and networking.

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.

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!

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.

- 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.

This month we invite new and experienced freelancers to come together to identify what makes a good freelancer? Those new to freelancing can ask experienced members anything they want to know about getting started and keeping motivated. All members will be asked to share what brought you to freelancing? What makes you stick with it? What has brought you success, where have you failed?

Join us for another lively 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.

OK, to be honest, Matt Mullenweg won't actually be attending ... at least I don't think so. This photo is from a long-ago time when we had big in-person WordPress events, and I had the opportunity to ask him for a photo.

This MeetUp will be led by Mary Ann Aschenbrenner, me, and cover the recently released and latest WordPress theme, Twenty Twenty-One. Not only will we go over what the theme can do, but we will also take a back-end look at a couple of websites built using the theme, go over the plugins I used, and talk about how to edit this theme to fit your needs.

We will also touch on some of the changes and benefits of the latest WordPress release, Version 5.6.

Join us for a fun and fast-paced Zoom MeetUp. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and, hopefully, to get answers.

We will record this event and post a link in the MeetUp comments a day or two after the MeetUp.

---

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

The Business Case for Accessibility

Is your website accessible for people with disabilities (for instance, people who are blind)? Maybe you have heard about businesses like Domino's and entertainers like Beyoncé being sued over inaccessible websites. Did you know that in 2019 (the most recent year stats are available) more than 2235 businesses and organizations were sued because their websites were not accessible?

Sometimes websites are not made accessible because of the perceived large increase of costs -- and it can cost more to make a site accessible. But accessible websites have good ROI (return on investment) for both developers and businesses who make their sites accessible. It's not just good karma, it's good business!

This talk will not deal with technical aspects of making sites accessible, but will focus on why building in accessibility on websites is good for business, and what are some steps that anyone can take now to make their website more accessible. Business owners will find this information helpful, and anyone who develops sites for businesses (and nonprofits!) will also find tips for "selling" accessibility to clients who may be unfamiliar with the concept, and how to get them to fully embrace it.

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.

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.

- Please check the date and time in the confirmation email for your scheduled 1-on-1 call.

- These calls are scheduled in advance. If there is no time available today, you can book your call for the next available time.
