Join us to weigh in on some strategies for moving forward as a primarily online meetup group, at least for the foreseeable future.

We'll also consider some options for topics and format, including a schedule of interactive micro and/or mini lessons -- I have a few that are ready to go on (for example) "WordPress and the LAMP stack" and "tweaking CSS via the Customizer" -- suggest a topic, or (even better) volulnteer to offer something!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

KEYNOTE
My Journey with WordPress, how I made it my career, & how you can too!
Adam W. Warner, GoDaddy Pro

I started building websites in the late 90s, but it was my discovery of WordPress in 2005 when my path started to change. Through many failures and a few successes, I learned that I could turn my passion into a career. In this session, I’ll share that journey and the many “baby steps” that led me into working full-time with the WordPress software and community. The WordPress and website creation space is ripe with opportunity for all skill levels, and I’ll share several ways of working with WordPress as your career.

About Adam...
Hello World. I'm Adam. I build communities and connections. I’m a true WordPress evangelist in spirit and personality. Today, I’m the Global Field Marketing Manager for GoDaddy Pro, bringing my experience and knowledge of the web and online business to the WordPress web designer and developer community.

Want to know the easiest way to avoid a bad client? Just send over a copy of your Services & Pricing Guide!

How many times have you hopped on a discovery call just to find out the potential client isn't a good fit? And what about all the times you have to come up with a price on a whim when someone reaches out via DM or email?

If any of those questions resonated with you then it's time you get a Services & Pricing Guide. Not only will it make a good first impression, but it will also help you to:

* Save time
* Weed out bad clients
* Be consistent with pricing
* Set expectations before taking on a new client

Learn what a Services & Pricing Guide can do for you as a WordPress professional and how to put one together.

Last month there were questions about plugins and WordPress set ups.
This month, let's discuss Plugins and what your favorite plugins are. And we will look at a site with a few plugins and see how they work.

Join us every third Monday of the month for our casual get together to talk about WordPress and the web . Experience levels may vary with each month's topic.

We begin with a monthly topic, and then finish the evening with general discussion and answer questions that we have.

WordPress powers approximately 1/4 of the entire internet, it's an impressively powerful and still very easy to use tool. Sometimes you just need a little help picking up the basics.

Website Performance Concepts, Tools, and Google

This Meetup occurs via Zoom. Topics will be posted here each month.

Please find the Zoom link on this event page after you RSVP. You will be asked to register and then will be aded to the Waiting Room of the Zoom meeting and admitted at 6 pm.
--------------------------------------------

Website performance concepts and testing tools can be confusing to understand. Google has several tools that measure different things: PageSpeed Insights, Lighthouse, Page Experience, and Core Web Vitals. Other testing tools provide a variety of results: GTmetrix, Pingdom Tools, and WebPageTest.

With Google's upcoming Page Experience update, website owners are more concerned than ever about what these metrics mean for their sites.

In this interview with Matt Kopala, owner of SiteDistrict hosting, we will talk about:

* Website performance concepts & their importance

* Google & website performance

* Understanding real-world website performance (for real users)

* Synthetic tests & speed testing tools vs. RUM and field data

* Core Web Vitals (CWV) overview

* What CWV means for your sites

We look forward to seeing you soon! Please put your questions in the comments of this event, and we will see what we can cover.

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.

It is no surprise that the online education industry has expanded ten-fold since the onset of the pandemic. More and more industries are reinventing how they educate staff, provide services, and create digital products for sale. In online course creation, planning for accessibility should not be glossed over for a variety of reasons. This presentation discusses inclusion from a common-sense perspective.

Elementor, as you know, is compatible with many WP Learning Management Systems. When used in combination with LifterLMS and other plugs this can expand course design and content efficiency through Elementor’s dynamic template setup - all while keeping accessibility in mind.

Our presenter: Suzy Web, AKA Susan Wheeler-Hall

Retired family therapist, author, international speaker, and disability advocate, Susan Wheeler-Hall, pivoted her career after a significant health setback and reinvented herself as Suzy Web, web design, and tech educator.

Now, 10-years later Susan is well known in the Elementor and LifterLMS arenas. Accessibility continues to be a constant thread in all her work helping coaches with digital business education and on-line course development.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

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

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

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

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

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

----FAQ----

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

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

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

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

For Your Eyes Only: Implementing Privacy Policies & Terms of Use - Karen Greene

Community: WordPress West Orlando

2021-05-20 18:00

Online event

▶ Watch Online

¡Sign up!

Signed up 9 of 150.

ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Websites need privacy policies and terms of use, but what should be in those policies? What procedures need to be in place to implement the policies? And what impact do your technical choices have on privacy considerations? In this presentation, Karen will provide an overview of privacy laws and discuss the technical best practices for implementing the legal requirements.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Karen Slongwhite Greene is a Florida-licensed attorney who loves to build WordPress websites. Her journey with WordPress started in 2013 when she started a personal blog about her knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, dyeing, and sewing projects. She started by picking a theme, customizing the appearance, and forgetting about it. In 2018, she became the Technology Chair for the Florida Tropical Weavers Guild and took over their website. This project led her deeper into WordPress, as she built it into a membership site and a registration portal for their 2021 Virtual Conference. Unlike many of you, she loves the block editor.

ATTENDING THE MEETUP
This event will be ONLINE ONLY at https://meet.google.com/hvg-yjhy-kzb due to current guidelines on restricting human contact during the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be broadcast at 6:00 pm on Thursday, May 20th, 2021 as a live Google Meet.

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

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

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

It’s great to learn, but even better to put things into action on your own WordPress websites! At this event, you’ll get the opportunity to practice testing color contrast on your own website and explore options for remediation.

Last month’s speaker John B. Northup of WebAIM introduced us to accessibility guidelines and tools for color contrast, and this month’s event offers a hands-on part where you can apply that learning to your own websites.

(Even if you didn’t attend our Meetup event with John B. Northup, we think you’ll be able to keep up!)

If you have a WordPress website that you want to test in the group, we’ll take a look (time permitting); however, there is NO GUARANTEE that we’ll select your site for testing.

As well, we’ve been playing around with color and the new WordPress block editor, and there are some things we’ve encountered and found solutions for. Have you encountered similar issues and want to ask for help or share solutions?

If you have questions about accessible color contrast using WordPress, please pre-ask your questions in the comments below. Or ask in the open question period during the event.

This would be a great Meetup event to attend if:
✅ you attended our event with John B. Northup and you can’t wait to apply what you’ve learned to your WordPress website,
✅ your cat/squirrel/kids/parents/overfilled calendar/sleep got in the way of you attending our last event and you want to experience the takeaways,
✅ you’re new to web accessibility and want to learn one of the first steps you can take to make your WordPress website more accessible,
✅ you know your way around WordPress and Accessibility, and look forward to contributing to the community, and/or,
✅ . . . you just love learning about WordPress and Accessibility in a fun and supportive community! 😀

======

Who should attend?

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

We do have a few rules.

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

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

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

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

[NOTE: We want to limit this Meetup to 30 participants, so join soon . . . and also please update your RSVP if you later find that you cannot attend.]

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

This is an online event via Google Meet. Meetups are being held virtually until further notice.

Please join us at 6:30PM for a some socializing and WP chat. We'll begin the presentation at 6:45, or whenever most of those who RSVP are logged in and ready to go.

This month we have a guest presenter, Amber Hinds, CEO of Equalize Digital, who will talk to us about the pros and cons of using WordPress plugins to improve your site's accessibility score.

Presentation Description:

Website accessibility is a hot topic right now, and rightly so. COVID brought a rapid increase in the number of people engaging solely online with businesses, increasing the need for accessible websites. In 2020, there were more than 3,500 lawsuits related to website accessibility - an average of 10 filed every business day.

Many business owners and developers want to make their websites more accessible, and there are a plethora of accessibility tools and plugins on the market proclaiming to support accessibility initiatives - some better than others.

This presentation will look at all of the accessibility plugins currently available to WordPress websites and discuss the pros and cons of each. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the accessibility plugin landscape, knowledge of how to test accessibility plugins for accuracy and useability, and which plugins, if any, might be right for them.

About the Speaker:

Amber Hinds is the CEO of Equalize Digital (https://equalizedigital.com/), a website accessibility consulting firm and Certified B Corporation striving to create a world where all people have equal access to information and tools on the internet, regardless of ability. Since 2010, Amber has led digital marketing campaigns for clients in a variety of industries.

User experience has always been a primary focus of Amber's work and, after experiencing the importance of accessible websites through a blind acquaintance, she founded Equalize Digital. Amber is a corporate member of the International Association of Accessibility Professionals and frequently speaks on accessibility-related topics.

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.

Bring your curiosity, your questions, your swell attitude and lots of potatoes. J/k, just bring your smiling faces. Please read the info below as it pertains to our meetup format and FAQs.

About the Pasadena WordPress Meetup

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

Who can attend?

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

Format

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

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

FAQs

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

Hello WordPress Geeks!

TOPIC: Screen Reader Text

Let's talk about Screen Reader Text! What is that, you say? Screen Reader Text helps those who depend on assistive technologies remain on your site in comfort. It also allows you to maintain your site aesthetic while improving Accessibility. I'll show you a couple of ways to add Screen Reader text to your own sites!

HELP DESK will still be open!

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

GET INSPIRED

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

GAIN CLARITY

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

SQUASH THE BUGS

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

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

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.

Join the Northeast Ohio WordPress group for a discussion on this workshop: Introduction to Contributing to WordPress

To prepare for this discussion, please watch this workshop in advance: https://learn.wordpress.org/workshop/an-introduction-to-contributing/

In this brief workshop with Courtney Patubo Kranzke and Cami Kaos from the WordPress Community team you’ll learn a little bit about the history of WordPress software, understand better how building open source software differs from building traditional “closed source” software, and learn what teams the WordPress project is divided into. With this, we hope you’ll glean a better understanding of how the WordPress project functions and where you might like to get involved.

Please watch the video first and join us for a discussion to answer any questions that you have on contributing to WordPress or the various teams and projects.

Please note: This is not a Meetup where we can provide assistance with your website. Website questions can be asked at any time in the #wp-help channel of our Slack: https://wpneo.slack.com/archives/C011U4S0LKW

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

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.

There are multiple paths to WordPress itself, and nearly as many paths to deciding how and when to get involved once you arrive. As part of my work on the WordPress project over the past eleven years, I’ve spent a lot of time observing the ways that community members currently participate.

Our conversation will explore the paths from attending your first Meetup to Connecting —> Understanding —> Engaging —> Performing —> Leading.

💻 On a computer with a working microphone (built-in or external), click the Zoom link in your confirmation email to join at 11:20 A.M. on Tuesday.

🎯 When you join the meeting, you will be in the main discussion room for a brief overview of the event and what to expect.

We’re a group of local WordPress developers, designers, and publishers who get together to share our knowledge, our experience, and to meet other WordPress users in the area. This WordPress Meetup is open to all who love WordPress — join us!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ONLINE ZOOM EVENT

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

We'll still be meeting on the 2nd Thursday of every month on Zoom at 7pm. We look forward to seeing you!

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

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

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.

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!

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.

- 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.

June 26 Meetup with feature Larry Swanson. Larry is a Content Strategist and was an active leader in the local WordPress community. You can read more about Larry at https://ellessmedia.com/. Don't miss it.

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:
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----

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

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/

- 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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

JOIN US FOR A BREATHTAKING WORDPRESS EXPERIENCE!

Thrills and chills are in store as the local Communities in the North Valleys of Los Angeles Counties and around the world gather to celebrate all things WordPress for WordCamp Santa Clarita, July 17-18, 2021! Each year we highlight something special about Santa Clarita. This year we spotlight our area's amusement park history at Magic Mountain -- come along for the ride!

WHY SANTA CLARITA, CA?

Each year we celebrate all things WordPress, the Santa Clarita Valley, home of an enthusiastic and passionate community, ready to contribute. With a network of official WordPress Meetups in northern Los Angeles County from Bakersfield, Palmdale, San Fernando, West Hills, as far away as Santa Barbara, covering topics on Accessibility, Gutenberg and Full Site Editing, WooCommerce, User Experience, and Design, Marketing, Development, Business, as well as general topics to empower our community to do great things.

Our theme this year highlights the cultural landmark Six Flags Magic Mountain. According to Santa Clarita Valley lore, executives of Sea World were looking for a place in Los Angeles County to build a new theme park. Sea World and a local real estate firm formed a partnership and began to build a 200-acre amusement park at the western edge of a new town called Valencia. Seventy acres would be used for the park itself — rides, theaters, games, food, landscaping, parking, and more. With an annual attendance of 1 million back in 1971 to roughly 3.5 million today, Magic Mountian remains the ‘king of the coasters.’

WHAT IS OPEN TO ALL MEAN?

Each year's WordCamp Santa Clarita reflects the past 12 months of our local WordPress Community's Meetup topics and events. Last year, North Valley Meetups led the discussion on Accessibility and WordPress. Our dedicated track at this year's WordCamp will showcase those efforts.

OUR CALLS FOR SPEAKERS, VOLUNTEERS, AND ORGANIZERS NOW OPEN!

Volunteers are a large part of what makes WordCamp an awesome and unique experience. It’s a great way to give back to the WordPress Community and also a way to get involved. Sign up today at https://santaclarita.wordcamp.org/2021/.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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!

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:
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.

TOPIC: How to Update the PHP Version of Your WordPress Site

Just as you upgrade WordPress itself to make sure you are protected against security vulnerabilities, you should do the same with PHP.

Why upgrade to PHP 7.3, 7.4 or the latest version 8.0? It's much faster, resource-friendly, and more secure than its predecessors. In fact, it’s shown to be 3x as fast in some configurations.

What we're about

This an online group for WordPress enthusiasts in the Racine area. We host monthly meetings to support new users and discuss issues with and about WordPress. If you want to learn, teach, or meet others in the WordPress community, join us.

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.

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.

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

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.

—— More About the Help Desk Meetup ——

Not Just Technical Help!

Our community is full of members with a broad range of expertise from building sites, to front and back-end development, hosting, strategy, UX and design, SEO and analytics, social networking, to project and business management.

Bring your non-technical questions and expertise, too!

Come Help Others!

If you don't need help, please come anyway! We want to add your voice, skills, and experience to the conversation. Besides, we just like your company! :)

Have fun sharing your thoughts, debating with your peers, and yes, marketing yourself and making friends as you help others over their hurdles.

Remember: if you've been doing WordPress for 2 days, you can help the person who's been doing it for 1 day.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

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

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

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

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

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

----FAQ----

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

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

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

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

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:
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/

Please join our new FaceBook Group as well: https://www.facebook.com/groups/wpseattle
