November 2018 WordPress Meet-Up

Gutenberg and what it means for your WordPress site
————————————————————————–
The long promised Gutenberg editor will soon be revolutionizing your WordPress site, like it or not!

Gutenberg is a completely new block based editing interface for WordPress. You can try it out here: https://testgutenberg.com/, here: https://frontenberg.tomjn.com/ and here: https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/. If you are familiar with page builders like Divi, Beaver Builder, or Elementor, it is conceptually similar to them, although not yet as powerful.

Gutenberg is changing WordPress, and is a big part of the future of WordPress. It will have significant impact on page builders, themes and the way you use WordPress. Planning for Gutenberg phase 2 has just gotten underway. The plan is for Gutenberg to handle entire-site layouts. This will include replacing widgets and menus with blocks. When phase 2 is released, Gutenberg will probably be functionally equivalent to most current page builders, and themes will likely have morphed into something new.

Come find out more about Gutenberg, what it means for your WordPress sites, and if you really are not ready for it yet: how to avoid using it.

The release schedule https://make.wordpress.org/core/5-0/ has Gutenberg arriving on Nov 19th with the 5.0 release of WordPress.

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.
