Attend our next meeting to learn more about WordPress, meet other WordPress users, share ideas, projects and other information.

There are 2 meeting tracks:

  1. The "General" track, usually meets the first Wednesday of the month.  This track includes beginner WordPress topics and general topics like SEO.
  2. The "Not Beginner" track, occasionally meets on select Wednesdays of some months. This series is all the talks that cover anything that is "not beginner". Talks in this series will range from not very advanced at all - just barely above beginner - to deep dive dev talks. Anyone at any experience level is welcome to attend, but some prior knowledge of WordPress is expected at "not beginner" talks.

Most meetings are presentations that do not require you to bring a laptop. Meetings that are "Workshops" will generally require that you have laptop, and we will have WiFi available.  If laptops are needed it will be noted in the description.

WordPress learning, for everyone!
Beginners welcome!

June 2022 Ottawa Meetup – The Block Editor: Groups/Columns/Rows/Stacks and more!!

The Block Editor: Groups/Columns/Rows/Stacks and more!!

We’ll take a look at some of the new features of the WordPress block editor (aka Gutenberg) that have been added in versions 5.9 and 6.0 of WordPress. These updates put the editor’s layout capabilities for rows and columns on par with any of the page builders. Come see what you can do with the block editor using only WordPress blocks, no addons. If you are new to WordPress or new to using the block editor, or even if you have been using the block editor for a while, these new features will help you build better pages.

Presented by: Rick Radko
