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.

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.

ONLINE: Creating and Registering Block Patterns in WordPress

Community: WordPress Hyannis

2020-12-01 18:30

Online event

▶ Watch Online

¡Sign up!

Signed up 19.

The WordPress block editor provides opportunities for creating complex content for WordPress posts and pages. Content creators may find that configuring similar complex blocks again and again to be a cumbersome task. Fortunately, block patterns provide a way for easy access to pre-configured blocks and groups of blocks. Block Patterns are perfect for frequently used block configurations. This workshop will cover how to generate the markup for a block pattern in the block editor, and how to add the registration code for that pattern to a plugin or theme. While not required, this is meant to be a hands-on workshop. Preparatory instructions and starter example code will be provided ahead of time so attendees can code along with the presentation.

To fully take part in the hands-on portion of this workshop please come prepared with:

- A fresh WordPress site using the latest version of WordPress. I recommend a local WordPress installation using Local WP: https://localwp.com/.
- A boiler-plate plugin installed and activated on your site - You can quickly generate a plugin for this purpose here: https://wppb.me/
- The ability to access the files on your development site and edit them in a plain text editor or IDE

A note for non-coders: If you are not comfortable coding, you can also use the VK Block Patterns plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/vk-block-patterns/ to save block patterns to your site using a plugin.

If you need any help to get started with the above, please contact Daisy for help prior to the meetup.

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.

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

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.

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/

Let's Make This Fun!
The December MeetUp will be interactive. So, come prepared to share.

We will ask everyone to introduce themselves and share one thing they feel good about from 2020 and one thing they hope to do in 2021.

Bring your favorite quarantine drink or beverage and share the recipe. We will toast the upcoming holidays.

All participants will be unmuted. If you have background noise, please mute yourself and only unmute when you want to talk. We expect everyone to show up on the Zoom screen. To keep us from interrupting each other, raise a hand and wave before speaking.

Unlike presentation MeetUps, we will not record this MeetUp. This is for fun ... and for planning 2021 MeetUp topics.

This is not a WordPress Help or presentation MeetUp. If you need help with your website, please attend one of the Help MeetUps on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month.

---

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

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.

We'll cover:
- Types of social proof and reviews
- Best practices for where and when to add them to your site
- Tips for getting more reviews
- How to add reviews from 3rd parties

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.

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

Given the state of things in the world, we are going to take this meetup online for a while until things cool down. We will send out a link to all confirmed meetup attendees prior to the start of the event so you know how to join.

This meetup is intended for developers of all skill levels. Whether you’re a hobbyist or a professional, just starting out or a have multiple plugins under your belt, we have room for you.

Frontity is React for WordPress

Frontity is a framework that enables developers to build sites and web apps for headless (or decoupled) WordPress using React. It can be compared to Gatsby or Next.js, however, unlike the alternatives it is 100% focused on WordPress.

I'll start with some background on what Frontity is, what problems it is trying to solve, and explain why you should reach for Frontity for your next project! :)

However, most of the talk will be a live demo showing off how to build a basic theme from scratch using Frontity.

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.

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.

Agenda

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

Roughly:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For our December 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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/

The Auburn WordPress Meetup Group is for any WordPress user – new or experienced – who wants to learn more about WordPress, network with other users and developers, and discuss all things WordPress.

The meetup will be a video conference due to ongoing social distancing. We will be using a technology called Zoom for the meeting. The meeting will start with everyone joining the video conference using video and audio on your computer or smartphone. If you aren't actively speaking, please mute your microphone.

The first part of the meeting will be a round-table discussion of WordPress. We will then try to move into a help desk collaboration that may either be everyone or breaking into smaller groups.

Thanks in advance for everyone's participation and patience as we adjust to the community changes.

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.

Map Lexington (USA)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do you have a WordPress website and have an issue you need help with? Bring it to the workshop and the Inland Empire WordPress group will do their best to help you through it. IEWP Workshops encourages EVERYONE to attend, female or male, old or young, beginner/intermediate/advanced. Those more advanced can help 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.

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.

Agenda

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

Roughly:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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/

The Auburn WordPress Meetup Group is for any WordPress user – new or experienced – who wants to learn more about WordPress, network with other users and developers, and discuss all things WordPress.

The meetup will be a video conference due to ongoing social distancing. We will be using a technology called Zoom for the meeting. The meeting will start with everyone joining the video conference using video and audio on your computer or smartphone. If you aren't actively speaking, please mute your microphone.

The first part of the meeting will be a round-table discussion of WordPress. We will then try to move into a help desk collaboration that may either be everyone or breaking into smaller groups.

Thanks in advance for everyone's participation and patience as we adjust to the community changes.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

WordPress Happiness Bar

This is the place to come for learning and getting help over a hurdle. Bring be ready to share your question or help others with their questions. No question is too small.

This Meetup is intended for a wide range of users. Whether you're a brand-new WordPress novice, a creative designer, an experienced blogger, a SEO and analytics expert, or even an advanced developer...all are welcome. We're all here to learn and share in this volunteer-run WordPress community.

Are you working on a project - your own or a client - and having challenges? Do you have an idea for your WordPress site, and you don't even know where to begin to implement it? Are you curious what themes or plugins to choose? Are you wrestling with your page builder? Do you need a better website host? This is the Meetup is for you!

If you don't need help, please join us anyway! There's always something to learn and perhaps you'll want to add your experience to the conversation.

The Meetup is 2 hours long and starts on time. Please join the meetup at the scheduled time (6:00 PM Pacific) by going to the Zoom link provided when you RSVP. For added security, we're not going to display the link publicly so you'll need to RSVP to see it.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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/

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.

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'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!

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.
