User: Remodel and Transition a WordPress Site to a New Theme and Hosting

Monday, February 5, 2018
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

U.S. Bancorp Tower Conference Rooms
111 SW 5th Avenue, Portland, OR

Mary Ann Aschenbrenner will walk us through a website remodel as she transitions the North Portland Neighborhood Services website,, to a responsive Studio Press theme on a new server. In this MeetUp we will go over the reasons this site needs to be redesigned and ways to make the process flow smoothly. We will also look at the back-end of the new website, the theme, and plugins selected. Both the old version of the website and the version that is ready to roll out will be on display. There will be time for questions and answers. Do you have a website that needs to be remodeled? Then you will want to attend this MeetUp.

The agenda:

  • 6:00 – 6:15: Introductions. What you do, are you looking to hire, are you looking for work?
  • 6:15 – 6:45: Speaker and topic.
  • 6:45 – 7:00: Questions and answers on the topic.
  • 7:00 – 8:00: Get help with WordPress. Bring your laptop for this part. There’s a wide range of experience levels, and we’re all here to help each other.
  • 8:00: Soft Close. You may hang out a bit longer to talk or finish up a project, but the official Meetup will end.

Some of us usually go for beers at Bailey’s Taproom (213 SW Broadway) afterwards. Let us know if you’re interested in joining!
