Two WordPress Meetups in April 2018

  • WordPress Community Workshop – Gutenberg Special – Thurs. 12th April, 6:30pm at CitizenM’s Glasgow
    Gutenberg is the new WordPress editor, to be released sometime in April.

  • Find Content Ideas Relevant to Your Audience, by Ahmed Khalifa – Tues. 24th April, 6:00pm at iCafe Sauchiehall St.
    When it comes to creating content, the hard part is 1) coming up with ideas, and 2) it’s something that your audience is searching for and looking for on Google. And since the old boring cliché of “content is king” is always around us, it feels like you are under pressure to do your content justice by maintaining its high-quality and consistency.

  • “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?!

    • initial installation;
    • choosing a theme;
    • selecting plugins;
    • (very) basic SEO.
