Join us on Zoom as Mary Ann Aschenbrenner takes on a walkthrough of the this year's WordPress theme. She will demonstrate several websites she's built for her clients using the Twenty Twenty WordPress theme, describe how to use the page templates included, and even go over the CSS coding to make font and other design changes. The sites being demonstrated are currently live and available to view. There will be ample opportunity for questions.

This WordPress MeetUp on Zoom will be recorded and a link to the video added to the Comments section a day or two after the event so you will be able to view this MeetUp again at a later time.

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, you may want to get set up and familiar with it in advance. We recommend you upgrade to the latest version, especially if you're running a version before 5.0. There have been some major security improvements since then.

You can join the meetup at the scheduled time (6pm Pacific) by going to the link provided when you RSVP. For added security, we're not going to display the link publicly. You'll need to 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 extra background noise from getting picked up.

If you have a question, please go to the Participants panel and click the button to "raise your hand". We'll take breaks to answer questions, and we'll 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 converse with other participants, but if you have a question for the presenter, remember to "raise your hand" instead of typing the question into the chat. We won't be monitoring the chat as frequently.

We'll be recording the presentation, and we'll link to the video in the comments after it's been processed.

We will not have the usual hands-on help and networking portion of the meetup. However, we encourage people to converse in our Slack group for general WordPress discussion at any time. You can join here: https://join.slack.com/t/wpportland/shared_invite/enQtNDIwMDY4MTQzODYyLTI4ZTcyMzVjOWRhNjI0YTNmNDg2NGI1N2I3Yzc2ZGI1NDg3NjQ1N2ExMzlkZDIzNDQxM2FmY2E0NWQwZGQ3YzM

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/

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.

CHECK BACK as this event gets closer to find out if we will be meeting in-person or online.

Topic: A user will not always submit data your WordPress website or application will expect. This could be malicious or simply user error. How your website or application handles unexpected data is very important, and should not be taken lightly. This session will cover how to handle such unexpected data gracefully and, even more important, securely. We will discuss many best practices you will want to follow every time you open your editor.

Presenter: Mike Auteri (@mauteri) is a Senior Software Engineer at Penske Media Corporation (PMC) who leads development for many well-known publishing brands on WordPress.com VIP. He's contributed a few lines of code to WordPress core, written a couple plugins, presented at meetups/WordCamps, and is a co-organizer of the WordPress Montclair Meetup and lead organizer of WordCamp Montclair 2020. A New Jersey native, Mike lives not 4 blocks from a house featured in the Sopranos. Mike is a fan of good beer, hot sauce, and an avid fencer.

NEW NO-SHOW POLICY: Due to limited space at our new venue, we DESPERATELY need everyone to RSVP and, more importantly, UPDATE your RSVP if you can no longer make it or change your mind. We will be taking attendance at each meeting. If you leave your RSVP as "attending" but do not show up, your Meetup account will be flagged for "no show." Repeat no-show offenders will be subject to removal from the group.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: This meetup sticks very closely to the guidelines set out by WordPress for such Meetups. To that end we'll be adhering specifically to this statement: WordPress Meetups are welcoming places where everyone works to foster an accepting environment which is free of discrimination, incitement to violence, promotion of hate, and general jerk-like behavior.

Let's face it, you probably did not become a web designer, developer, or an agency owner so that you could be a privacy attorney. However, your clients still ask you questions about privacy compliance requirements for their websites. In this talk, you'll learn the three things all web professionals need to know about privacy:

• Which websites need to have a Privacy Policy;
• Why Privacy Policies are important; and
• Why you should be the one to talk to your clients about privacy.

Our presenter tonight is Donata Kalnenaite, a licensed attorney focusing her work on privacy and technology law. She is a Certified Information Privacy Professional and the President of Termageddon, a software that has generated thousands of Privacy Policies, Terms of Service and more. Donata is also the newsletter editor of the American Bar Association's ePrivacy Committee and the Chair of the Chicago Chapter of the International Association of Privacy Professionals.

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/

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.

February's topic is starting a business - scoping and contracts.

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 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.

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.

Use this link to join the Seattle WP Slack Group (https://wpseattleslack.wordpress.com/) and then you can interact with the group in the Business Channel. We post all our Freelancer minutes on our website at: https://wpseattle.org/category/freelancers-meetup/

When websites are properly designed and coded, people with disabilities can use them. However, many sites are developed with accessibility barriers that make them difficult or impossible for some users to interact with your content. A few tweaks can go a long way and the Chicago Divi Meetup will share some practical tips for making your site more accessible to a broader audience.

Join us to learn about some high-level website accessibility features available in the Divi Theme and some best practices for developing with an accessibility mindset. Plus, learn about how some accessibility features can also benefit your search engine optimization (SEO) scores.

Presenter: Scott Winterroth (https://facebook.com/scottwinterroth)

Scott is the co-organizer of the Divi Chicago meetup group and has been building websites with WordPress and optimizing them for over 13 years. He is by far not an accessibility expert but is very passionate about making the web a more inclusive place.

All are welcome! This is a virtual meetup due to the Illinois Stay-at-Home order, join us on Zoom and turn on your webcam to have a great experience.

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

It's a free, powerful, popular e-commerce platform that integrates easily with WordPress and has a large support community.

In this Meetup you're going to learn how to quickly set up WooCommerce on your website and how to successfully manage your online store.

Peter will be covering the technical set-up of WooCommerce and share some recommended add-on plugins to give it advanced features.

Judith Ann will be sharing her experience with running an e-commerce website using WooCommerce.

We hope this combined technical and "real world" discussion will help give you the information you need to get started with WooCommerce!
__________________________________________________

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

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

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

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.

Gutenberg blocks are great...until they're not. What do you do when a block isn't behaving the way you would like and it is impacting your page. Can you still use your bag of CSS tricks to make it do what you want? Is your bag of CSS tricks teeny tiny?

Join us for this online meeting and Craig will show you some modifications he has had to make to tweak some Gutenberg blocks on some live sites. If you're not comfortable with CSS that's okay. We'll keep it relatively simple and welcome questions both basic (for Craig) and complex (for Chris). See you there.

Hello WordPress Geeks!

The World is still playing in this wonderful virtual space. How many meetups around the globe have you been to this week? Why don't you add Santa Barbara, CA and join in our geekery!

Are you working on a project, your own or a client's, and you're having some challenges? Do you have an idea for your WordPress site and you don't even know where to begin to implement it? Well, this Meetup is for you! Bring your project and we'll look at your sticky parts or help you strategize how to move forward with your ideas.

Get Inspired

In these interesting times getting online is essential, especially for your "non-essential" business. We can brainstorm ways to get online technically AND creatively with WordPress.

Gain Clarity

Sometimes knowing where to begin is just too overwhelming. When you gain more clarity and focus on what you want to achieve, it's easier to look for options. Bring your big WordPress Dreams and let's see if we can help you find the first step to implementing them.

Squash the Bugs

Are you stuck? Something isn't working the way everyone else says it should. You've spent days and lost hair trying to figure it out. Maybe a few more pairs of eyes and extra brain power can help you. Bring you're buggy situations and let's see if we can fumigate your issue!

The Meetup is 2 hours long. Depending on number of participants and issues not everyone may get help for their specific issue. So, I will go in the order of RSVP's. Isn't that incentive for you to grab your spot now?

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

We will have a guest speaker in June. His name is Topher DeRosia and the topic will be: Build E-commerce Sites With Confidence (Demystifying commerce). Topher is the Senior Developer Advocate at BigCommerce.com and he has been on the WordCamp speaking circuit many a time. He is an experienced speaker and WordPress Expert. I met him years ago when he was a speaker for WordCamp Columbus. We can learn a lot from him and he will likely return to speak about other topics for us.

Here is his session description:

Building an e-commerce store can be a daunting experience. Suddenly you're not just working with content anymore, now it's taxes and shipping and customers that need to be kept happy.

Fortunately it doesn't have to be scary. We'll look at a number of steps you can take to remove the uncertainty from building e-commerce websites, so that you can move forward with confidence.

This will be a virtual session. I'll post the link and password right before the session, but note the info will only show up for people who RSVP. So you must RSVP to be able to see the meeting details. That's just the way it's set up on the Meetup site. Stay tuned. **NOTE: The date for June's meeting is not the first Thursday of the month, as usually is the case. It is actually the second Thursday of the month to accommodate Topher.**

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

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

Eat before you come, bring your laptop, bring your local server installed on your laptop (if you don't have one, we will get you set up on DesktopServer), and get ready to get or give some help. We look forward to seeing you! Wifi is available.

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

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

Thanks for everyone joining us in May! We had some good conversation and support, although we delayed the WooCommerce presentation until June! We will continue the virtual meetup process in June, and look forward to seeing you!

This month, we will talk about WooCommerce. Art Smith has a couple of small eCommerce sites (neither of which is on WooCommerce) and will present the basics of eCommerce and Woo, and walk us through converting one of his sites to WooCommerce.

How to do virtual? That's a great question. We want to make the experience as useful and dynamic as possible. So, we will use Zoom as our online meeting platform, conducting our presentation and give folks a chance to talk about how life is going indoors, then we will leverage the feature of Zoom that allows us to create breakout rooms so that we can have folks get together 1-on-1 (or 2-on-1, or whatever works) to work on issues just like we do in person.

We strongly suggest you install the Zoom app on your device (whether a mobile device or laptop/desktop computer) and test it out ahead of time so you are sure the audio and video components are working.

PS: We are always interested in new presenters... message Cecille or Art if you have a topic you'd like to share!

Agenda:

9:00-9:30 Introductions, sharing challenges and solutions that are helping us get through the COVIV-19 situation. If you want to break up into separate rooms to talk to someone, that's totally cool... or use the Zoom chat function to have private conversations.
9:30-9:45 Announcements, any business to discuss with the group.
9:45-10:30 Presentation – How do I get some Woo? (Art Smith)
10:30-12:00 Q&A, hands on problem solving with problems YOU bring to the Meetup! We'll break up into separate Zoom rooms to help each other.

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

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

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

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

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/

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.

Aloha and welcome to Kailua-Kona's WordPress community!

Bring your ideas and willingness to learn something new in Wordpress. We discuss updates, themes, plugins and various Wordpress day to day issues and solutions.

We will begin as soon as the first person arrives. If you have a topic to discuss, please add it to the discussion area using the menu link above. This gives other attendees the chance to consider the discussion and add to the topic.

We do not have a set topic. Topics come from the community.

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

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

This meeting will be every 3rd Wednesday of the month. Check the calendar for future times and days.

Block Therapy - The St. Louis WordPress Meetup

Topic

Let's talk about blocks, the fundamental foundation of the editor in WordPress. What are blocks, how do you use them, and how do you find more to use‽ Bring your questions and let's learn together.

Location

On the internet! RSVP to see the Zoom link.

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 8:00pm - Main topic of the evening and presentations.

Let's talk about WordPress!

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/

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.

At our happiness bar we discuss projects that we're working on, ask questions of one another about any difficulties that we may be having, or simply catch up. This is a low pressure environment, and we're all here to share with one another.

We will be at Port City Java starting at 5:30pm. Just because you cannot get to the coffee shop at 5:30pm still come we will be there until 7:30pm to answer any questions.

What to bring if you are coming specifically for WordPress help:

• Bring your charged laptop with you
• Bring whatever logins needed to get into your site
• Be ready to take notes
• Be respectful of the time of everyone else attending
• Be willing to accept that some problems can't be solved in 15 minutes and may require more help than we can offer here
• Buy a drink or snack from Port City Java. They let us use the space for free!
