Meetup Recap

Recap: Get Your WordPress Questions Answered

At our July 2018 Get Your WordPress Questions Answered meetup this week, our West Metro Detroit WordPress members discussed:

  • How to block IP addresses in the All in One WP Security and Firewall security plugin (to avoid getting dozens of attempted login messages every day)
  • WordPress themes: why a premium theme doesn’t necessarily mean better support or more recent updates than a free theme
  • Why you shouldn’t use Google to search for WordPress themes. Best to select themes from the WordPress repository or look at paid themes from respected theme shops

In addition, we had a quick demo of the beta Gutenberg editor, showing how it works and the concept of blocks.

During our meetup, several members shared their favorite premium themes and resources to learn more about and try out Gutenberg.

Resources

Here are some of the resources shared during the meetup. If I missed any, share them in the comments.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the meetup and helped to answer our members’ questions!

Our next meetup is Share Your Favorite Productivity Tool or Tip: on Tuesday, September 18, 2018. Hope you’ll join us!
