Date & Time: Sunday, January 20 at 11:30am - 4:00pm

Takeaways:

  • Learn to leverage plugins to unlock more features on your site (such as events, eCommerce and more)
  • Dive deeper into widgets, settings and customization options
  • Gain an understanding of WordPress Page Builders including the new Gutenberg block page builder
  • Get quick answers to questions that most new WordPress users waste hours googling
  • Learn about common pitfalls and how to avoid them
