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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If you have a question, please go to the Participants panel and click the button to "raise your hand". Our presenter will take breaks to answer questions, and our moderator will call on whoever has their hand raised. You can unmute yourself while you ask your question, and then mute yourself and lower your hand after you're done.

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

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

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