November Summerville Meetup - How to Choose a WordPress Plugin

Dorchester County Library Summerville 76 Old Trolley Rd , Summerville, SC (map)

Join us on Tuesday, November 7 for our next Summerville meetup! 

Plugins are a way to extend and add to the functionality that already exists in WordPress. They offer custom functions and features so that each user can tailor their site to their specific needs.  But, with over 52,000 plugins now in the WordPress Plugin repository, deciding which ones are right for your site can be a daunting task!

This month, we will be showing a video presentation that talks about what to look for when choosing WordPress plugins to ensure compatibility and so that your site does what it needs to, functions well, and remains secure!  After the presentation we will host an Open Q&A where you can bring your questions about plugins & discuss them with the group.


6:15 - 6:30pm - Networking & Food/Snacks!

6:30 - 7:00pm - Presentation

7:00 - 7:30pm - Open Q&A (bring your questions!)

7:30 - 7:45pm - Free to chat & network until end

The library graciously offers their meeting room free of charge, but asks that everyone exit the room by 7:45pm. If you wish to continue your conversations with other members, there is an Applebee's and Waffle House next door =) Also, please keep voices down when exiting - thanks!
