WordPress page builders are a common topic and interest in our community. We have many folks that feel strongly one way or another about this one or that one. Sometimes it even gets heated!

As our first panel meetup, we thought it would be exciting to have some of the more knowledgeable members of our group participate in a panel representing their page builder of choice.

We aren't looking to find "the best one," but it would be great to know how each one shines in its own way and what the future might hold for each page builder as Gutenberg evolves. And just for good measure, we included a Gutenberg panelist as well :-D

This is our first joint meetup between Montclair, Morris County, and Central Jersey WordPress meetup groups.

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

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

At last month's General Meetup, Steve Zehngut mentioned that he uses a service called Buddy (https://buddy.works/) for deployments and other automation. He has graciously offered to show us some of the features of the platform and how they use it.

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

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.

Tips to Achieve the Diversity You Aspire Towards

Many business leaders have aspirational goals and initiatives to increase diversity and extend opportunity yet miss the mark in recruiting all of the best and the brightest.

Employers factor out immigrant students during recruitment or hiring unintentionally and as a result miss out on candidates who offer diversity of thought and experience that can’t be found in other backgrounds. Students born in one country and raised in another inhabit multiple cultures and move between different environments and communities in seamless ways that bring unique insight to products and services and a unique work ethic to job positions.

Let my experience on both sides of the table - being hired and being part of the hiring process - be part of your tool box as you work to achieve the diversity you aspire towards.

Have something on your site that you're really proud of? Want to show off a new trick, plugin, block that you think is amazing? This is the meeting for you.

Got something that is broken and you can't figure it out? Want to show something on your site that just isn't right and has been bugging you? Share it in the meeting and we'll help solve it (or empower you to abandon it).

Rules for the night:
• This is an online meeting so be prepared to share your screen or a url if you want us to look at your site as an example.
• Send a note in the chat that you would like to share.
• All participants must remain positive and supportive. Everyone "likes" different things so we are working to help the presenter achieve their goals...not ours.
• It is great to promote things that you like but please no sales pitches or promotion of products that you financially benefit from.
• We'll cap each topic to 10 minutes so that others have a chance to present to/ask the group.

Hello WordPress Geeks!

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

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

Get Inspired

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

Gain Clarity

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

Squash the Bugs

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

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

Community: WordPress Raleigh

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.

While Divi has many options and settings to customize a website, it doesn't have everything. A basic knowledge of CSS can help you make a site stand out and speed up your web design process.

For March's topic we'll have a brief overview of using the Inspect tool, when you should use a child theme, as well as practical examples of commonly used CSS customizations.

If you've never used a browser's Inspect tool, Elegant Themes had an overview a couple of weeks ago. https://www.elegantthemes.com/blog/wordpress/browsers-inspect-element-tool

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

In summary, we'll cover important information about privacy laws and how they affect your website:

- Avoid massive fines and lawsuits

IEWP Workshops encourages EVERYONE to attend, female or male, old or young, beginner/intermediate/advanced. Those more advanced can help others.

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.

The coronavirus pandemic changed how we do everything in 2020. Work, learn, entertain ourselves, buy food, shop. People spent more and more of their lives online this past year.

If your business (and your clients) wasn’t ready to handle those changes with a good website, or you weren’t online at all, you probably found yourself scrambling to adjust when the pandemic hit. Here are just a few of the reasons why it is clear that we all need better websites.

Plus...

Do you know what to ask your prospective client once you make contact? A website design questionnaire is your first step to planning a project. It helps you get a clear understanding of what the client wants, but more importantly — it helps the client understand what they want. Learn what questions to ask your client to start your website design project on the right foot.

Topic: Do you want to learn how to easily create custom post types in WordPress?

Custom post types transform a WordPress site from a blogging platform into a powerful Content Management System (CMS). Basically, they allow you to go beyond posts and pages by creating different content types for your website.

Many popular WordPress plugins already use custom post types to store data on your WordPress website. The following are a few top plugins that use custom post types: WooCommerce, WPForms, and MemberPress.

OUR FOCUS

This group is for WordPress enthusiasts who work in development, design, blogging, and content management. If you love WordPress and are eager to learn, network, and share - join us.

Agenda

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

Roughly:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

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

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

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

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

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

----FAQ----

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

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

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

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

For the month of March, the WPJax community will again be joining the South Florida "Mega Meetup" for their free virtual meetup on Thursday, March 18th at 6:30pm!

As we continue into 2021, still in virtual meetups, we've decided to join our friends down in South Florida for their Mega Meetup events until that time we can be back in person again. Miami, Orlando and surrounding communities have always done an exceptional job supporting and building the WordPress community. They welcome top notch developers, designers and collaborators in the WordPress space and they have a ton of fun doing it! They've supported the Jacksonville WP community for years and we're pleased to be collaborating with them.

RSVP for the Mega Meetup for Thursday, March 18th at 6:30 pm:

https://www.meetup.com/SF-WordPress-Users/events/276654859/

*PLEASE NOTE* - You must RSVP for the Mega Meetup with South Florida's Meetup Event to get the Online Event Details. Organizers will post the details closer time to the Meetup.

FEATURING:

Talk 1: Bud Kraus: "Working With An Elementor Template"

Templates save us time and effort to quickly stand up or modify a WordPress site. In this demonstration Bud Kraus will select an Elementor template and modify it to meet his design requirements. He'll also review how to use Theme Builder templates that can be displayed across the entire site or for just one page.

SECOND TALK WILL BE FROM OFFICIAL REPRESENTATIVE FROM ELEMENTOR! INFO COMING SOON!

We are joining forces with multiple WordPress meetups! Spend time with WordPress folks that you might not have met before. Some meetups that will be joining us:

The Case for Elementor: Working Solo as a Product Designer

Online event

¡Sign up!

With all the different ways to build a website, it can be hard to choose the right method. The popularity of page builders gives people even more options to choose from. Rachel “Win” Winchester, a product designer and WordPress specialist, wants to make this choice easier for you by sharing her journey with the popular WordPress page builder, Elementor. You can view her designs at visualwebmaster.com.

Rachel started her journey with WordPress 4 years ago to experiment with building websites. 2 years ago she started using Elementor pro to gain more control and versatility over her sites’ themes. The past year she has focused on user interface/user experience design (UI/UX) and product design while starting to build websites for clients. In this presentation, she will share her decision to start using Elementor, the pros and cons of building Elementor sites for clients, and how she plans to keep using it in the future for freelance work.

Following the presentation, there will be an open group discussion on Elementor where people of all experience levels are welcome to share their insights. What has been your experience with Elementor? Do you plan to stick with it?

This presentation is great for:

1. UI/UX Designers looking to build their mockups or prototypes into live websites without compromising their designs

2. Front-end developers, engineers, and coders curious about “code-less” products in their ecosystem that are sometimes seen as “competition”

3. Entrepreneurs and hobbyists without engineering, development, or coding experience who are looking for the best way to create a website on their own

4. WordPress enthusiasts who hear the words “Elementor” “User Experience” and “page builder” too often and want to know what the heck is going on

5. Anyone comparing WordPress page builders (Divi, Beaver Builder)

6. Anyone comparing Elementor to the Gutenberg block editor

7. Anyone comparing Elementor to page builders on other platforms (Wix and Squarespace)

By the end of this talk, you will be one step closer to answering the question: is Elementor right for me?

The WordPress block editor provides opportunities for creating complex content for WordPress posts and pages--but content creators may find configuring similar complex blocks again and again a cumbersome task.

Fortunately, WordPress provides two ways for easy access to pre-configured blocks and groups of blocks. Block Patterns are perfect for frequently used block configurations, while Reusable Blocks allow block content to be used in multiple locations on a site with central management.

This presentation will cover how to create and register block patterns and how to create and edit reusable blocks. We'll also discuss examples of where each can be used effectively.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Daisy Olsen has worked in and around the WordPress community since 2007. She has spoken at WordCamps in New York City, Boston, and Chicago. She also helped to organize the first WordCamp Boston in 2010.

Currently, Daisy works for Automattic as a Developer Relations contributor on the WordPress open source project. In her spare time, you'll often find Daisy listening to audio books while knitting. She loves to travel with her family and has often spent many weeks throughout the year visiting different places.

This frustrated the people who had to wait and listen to the other questions and answers during the call. I don't want to waste everyone's time in this way.

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

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

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

----FAQ----

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

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

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

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

Hello Reno WordPress Members,

As you know our meetup location has always been at the Reno Collective, which like everywhere else, has been closed these past three months. As of June 8th, the Reno Collective reopened to MEMBERS only. They plan to stay closed to the general public for the foreseeable future.

Secondly, the WordPress Community Organizers have set guidelines for in-person events, meetups, and WordCamps, especially where community transmission is still a problem. These guidelines are in effect through the 4th quarter of 2020.

Given the circumstances and temporary closure of our usual venue (The Reno Collective) and assuming there is member interest, we could move our meetup online.

Therefore if you think an online meetup would be advantageous, then let's do this. We will keep to our established schedule — fourth Wednesday of each month, 6-8 pm, except we'll meet online.

Ping us on Meetup if you have any questions.

Stay healthy and safe out there.

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

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

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

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

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

There seems to be a plugin for anything you want to do with your WordPress site. With so many choices, how do you decide which to choose? There is nothing like real world experience so let’s help each other with that task.

Join the open discussion and bring the name of your favorite plugin (okay, maybe 2 or 3) to share in the discussion. You can also let us know the definitely-avoid-this-plugin if there is one of those on your list.

Even if you have no plugin experience, join us for the discussion among those of us who have gone through the trials and tribulations of finding the best tools!

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/

Going Live After Building Site Locally or in Staging

In March, we talked about how to create a staging environment and convert an existing site to Elementor.

In this session, we will discuss how to take that site live and all the details you need to pay attention to including:

1) Rewriting URLs in Elementor! Yes, in Elementor.

2) Clearing caches.

3) Considerations for new content on the live site such as new blog posts, comments, memberships, or WooCommerce orders that aren't on staging.

4) Alternative ways of "going live": Do you push your staging to live or do you copy your templates to the live site so as to not overwrite content on the live site, such as new products or orders? There are pros and cons to both, and we will deep dive into strategies.

5) Remember to set your Reading Settings, permalinks, Google Analytics, etc.

6) Other potential issues. Let us know when you register what problems you've experienced when going live.

7) If a new site, how to point your DNS if needed.

This Meetup will be great for those going live and needing to replace an existing site or going live with a new site.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

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

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

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

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

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

----FAQ----

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

If you have a question, please click the button to "raise your hand". Depending on your version of Zoom, this will be located in either the Reactions panel or the Participants panel. Our presenter will take breaks to answer questions, and our moderator will call on whoever has their hand raised. You can unmute yourself while you ask your question, and then mute yourself and lower your hand after you're done.

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

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

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

Animations add visual excitement to a website. When used purposefully, they can highlight specific sections, emphasize calls-to-action, and provide visual direction or cues.

We'll talk about how to use animations in general, review the different types of Divi animations available, and how to customize their settings.

In this presentation, you'll learn:
- why you would consider adding animated segments to your site
- how to use the animations feature within different Divi modules
- how to use other types of animated effects, such as parallax images and scroll effects
- best practices when implementing animations from a design/UX perspective

A WordPress Happiness Bar

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

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

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

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

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

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

----FAQ----

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

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

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

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

Introductions to those in attendance and how you are using WordPress.

1. Tammy Finch will discuss a site her and Becca did for her daughter, Jam for UpBeetJams.com. The site was built using Elementor and WooCommerce. There were several modifications to WooCommerce and a few work-a-rounds.
2. Let's discuss what you are working on and any challenges you are facing.
3. Basic networking and chats.

Brandon and I will try to have a topic of discussion posted with each event. If there is a request, please let us know and we will try to accommodate.

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.

You can build perfect looking webpages but you need to do more than just make them look great. You need to optimize them for search engines and users alike. Your pages need a good technical foundation, great content, and a solid site structure. In short, you need SEO.

Elementor partnered with Yoast SEO to create a complete integration, giving users the ability to utilize the entire scope of Yoast SEO features right from within the live Elementor editor.

Plus...

Headings help users and search engines to read and understand the text. For example, they act as signposts for the readers and make it easier for them to figure out what a post or page is about. Headings also define which parts of your content are important, and show how they’re interconnected. Here, we’ll give you pointers on how to think about headers and use them to improve your content.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TOPIC . We'll be looking at headers and footers, but mostly headers.

What do you include in your header? Are they sticky, transparent, change size, or disappear altogether? What else do you have besides a logo? These are some of the questions we'll be addressing.

SHOW & TELL. At the beginning of the meeting, please posts a link to your page in the Chat so we can see your header and/or footer. During introductions, we'll bring up your page for discussion.

WEBSITE HEADER. A website header sits at the top of each page and serves a few critical purposes. A header does more than provide a place for your logo and navigation; it is part of a consistent user experience.

Agenda

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

Roughly:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

- 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.

We're all here to learn and share in this volunteer-run WordPress community.

Are you working on a project - your own or a client - and having challenges? Do you have an idea for your WordPress site, and you don't even know where to begin to implement it?

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

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----

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.

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

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

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

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

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

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

----FAQ----

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

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

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

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

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

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

----FAQ----

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

I have a guest speaker that I am currently waiting for her verification. Upon her availability verification, her specific topic and description will be posted.

===========

The summer of 2017 marked a monumental victory for the millions of Americans living with a disability. On June 13th, a Southern District of Florida Judge ruled that Winn-Dixie's inaccessible website violated Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act. This case marks the first trial under the ADA, which was passed into law in 1990.

In December of 2017, Winn-Dixie appealed the case with blind patron Juan Carlo Gil. Their argument is that a website does not constitute a place of accommodation, and therefore, their case should have been dismissed. This case, and others, illustrate that the legality of web accessibility is still very much in flux. However, as web developers and designers, our motivation to build accessible websites should have nothing to do with the law and everything to do with the user experience.

Good accessibility is good UX. We should seek to create the best user experience for all. And we shouldn't settle for simply meeting accessibility standards but rather strive to create an experience that delights users of all abilities.

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.

Agenda

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

Roughly:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We look forward to helping you with WordPress.

----TLDR----

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

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

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

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

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

----FAQ----

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

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

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

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

Hello Reno WordPress Members,

As you know our meetup location has always been at the Reno Collective, which like everywhere else, has been closed these past three months. As of June 8th, the Reno Collective reopened to MEMBERS only. They plan to stay closed to the general public for the foreseeable future.

Secondly, the WordPress Community Organizers have set guidelines for in-person events, meetups, and WordCamps, especially where community transmission is still a problem. These guidelines are in effect through the 4th quarter of 2020.

Given the circumstances and temporary closure of our usual venue (The Reno Collective) and assuming there is member interest, we could move our meetup online.

Therefore if you think an online meetup would be advantageous, then let's do this. We will keep to our established schedule — fourth Wednesday of each month, 6-8 pm, except we'll meet online.

Ping us on Meetup if you have any questions.

Stay healthy and safe out there.

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/

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.

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

Map Lexington (USA)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Agenda

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

Roughly:

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

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

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

Let's talk about WordPress!

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

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

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

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