I purchase too much hosting…

  • Start with free and level up as you learn WordPress
    • Compare what you need
    • Considerations
      • Site Traffic
      • eCommerce
      • Site Speed
      • Environmentally conscious
      • Staging
      • Uptime

Site Design

Why doesn’t my site look like the demo?

  • Setup the test data for the demo
  • Make sure there is support

I have a premium theme but I can’t move things around.

Page Builder or Traditional Theme?

  • Do you need flexibility or are you OK with the theme restrictions?


Accessibility makes me angry…

  • Color
    • Links without underline can affect people with color blindness
    • Colors shouldn’t be the only way to convey a message
    • Color contrast testing
  • Start with an Accessible Theme
    • Check with the Tab Key – Does it navigate the site properly?

Can I just Google for a theme?

Stay away from random themes found on Google.


I’m still waiting for my client to send me website content.

There is a difference between print and web content.

  • Grammerly – checking grammar & spelling
  • Yoast WPSEO – checking you content based on SEO results

WordPress Community & Learning

I want more of a challenge that our basic WordPress meetup.

  • Get involved in the WordPress community through Core development & volunteering

I’m overwhelmed, how do I learn more?
