After a super exciting July for all Scottish WordPressers and our many friends, we continue the summer with a blast:
- WordPress Community Workshop – Thursday 10th August, 6:30pm at the CitizenM’s ground floor lounge.
If you would like to build a website using WordPress, or if you already have a WP site which is having issues, or if you are looking to share your WP knowledge, then this is the gathering to come along to. The idea is that people of all levels of ability can come along, collaborate, and discuss and/or show those aspects of WordPress that are of interest.
This informal get-together is also ideal for anyone who is new to WordPress and looking to find out more. Hear other people share their knowledge and experience.
- One-to-one help setting up your WordPress site, from Automattic – Thursday 17th August, 6:00pm in the CitizenM’s ground floor room.
The Automattic Happy Engineers are having a team meeting in Glasgow and would love to meet the local WordPress community and answer all your questions about setting up your WordPress site. don’t miss this unique chance!
- “Create your own Child Theme” workshop – Tuesday 22nd August, 6:00pm at iCafe Sauchiehall Street.
Have you found a nearly perfect theme for your website but Customizer doesn’t let you change everything you’d like to? Do you build WordPress websites for other people and wish you could use your creativity a bit more?
Child Themes are great for those who want to take WordPress that bit further as they allow you to take an already existing WordPress Theme and change absolutely anything from it.
We will start by learning about the structure of a WordPress theme and then create our own Child Theme step by step.
We’ll also learn how to test our site for the various platforms and make sure it is responsive and accessible.
Bring your laptop if you can.
Also, if you already know how to build Child Themes, come along and volunteer to help your co-members if they get stuck. It may be you next time!
You can join the WordPress Glasgow community and find out more about these and other events from our meetup.com website.
Another fab month!
