  • “WordPress Nuts and Bolts”, by Jemery Davis – Tuesday 26th September, 6:00 at iCafe Sauchiehall St., basement room.
    WordPress is easy to set up isn’t it? Isn’t it?!
    This is a run-through of some of the basic tasks required in setting up a WP site including:
    • initial installation;
    • choosing a theme;
    • selecting plugins;
    • (very) basic SEO.
    There’s lots to cover so it will be a skim through.Plus time for Q&A but hopefully minimal BS!

Three WordPress Glasgow meetups in August

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.WPGlasgow Community Workshop meet

    WPGlasgow with the Automattic Happy Engineers
  • “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!

  • Thursday 8th June, 6:30pm at the CitizenM’s ground floor lounge –

We all sit together with our laptops working on our own projects and help each other with whatever technical query we may have. Find out more about our Thursday meets in the WPGlasgow meetup page.
  • Wednesday 21th June, WPGlasgow goes to Edinburgh
    The first “official” get-together of the two current Scottish WordPress meetups! We are looking forward meeting everyone at our sister WordPress meetup and exchanging ideas and experiences. It’ll also be great to meet the WordCamp Edinburgh 2017 organising team just one month ahead the event. We’ll probably organise a car share to get there, leaving central Glasgow at 4pm. You can also make your own way there if this is not convenient. Please check details on the trip’s meetup page.
