Summer 2018 WordPress Meet-Up

For our summer meetup Mike Dickson will be giving a preview of his WordCamp Montreal presentation. https://2018.montreal.wordcamp.org

Setting Up a Multilingual Site with WPML
——————————————————–
WPML is the tool of choice for many site needing to have content available to users in multiple languages. In this talk I’ll explain how WPML works, go through the interface, and introduce some key insights I’ve discovered in my years with this very capable tool.

Presented by Mike Dickson: I am a content strategist, designer and developer. I’ve spoken at WordCamps in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, am a core contributor, and am a member of the WordPress documentation team. I’m an entrepreneur at heart, and I run my WordPress development business (and my dogs Sophie and Lucy) from my home in Ottawa.

April 2018 WordPress Meet-Up

Gutenberg: News and Views.

Gutenberg, is the new editor (and more) for WordPress. This is perhaps one of the biggest changes ever made to WordPress. Gutenberg is expected to be officially released sometime in April with release 5.0 of WordPress. It is currently available as a plugin at: https://wordpress.org/plugins/gutenberg/ for beta testing.

Tentative plans: With the impending release, it seems like a good time take a look at Gutenberg and what it may affect on your WordPress website. The plan is to have discussions and possibly presentations on Gutenberg and things you may need to to be aware of on your site before upgrading. More details to come.
