Topic: What is WP-CLI and how you can use it to Manage WordPress?
Presented by: Robert Wilde
Location: River City Labs, Fortitude Valley

WP-CLI or the WordPress-Command Line Interface is an exceptionally powerful tool to help you manage your WordPress site. It is very easy to use and during this presentation Mr Wilde will show you how you can use it to check and update your plugins, themes, WordPress core, add and edit users, backup the database and more.
We will discuss the command line, how to install WP-CLI and touch on some ways to extend it in your plugins or create simple scripts to spin up WordPress installs pre-configured with plugins, themes and settings in seconds. If you manage your own WordPress site or several for clients, this is a presentation not to miss.

As always we will start the night with Mr Wilde’s DT’s for March 2018. He will touch on all the news, training and blog posts for WordPress users, managers and developers. How to access Building: Please note RCL has moved to 315 Brunswick St. Head to Brunswick St Mall, locate the “TCB Building” half way up and follow signs for “THE PRECINCT” (and the WordPress Meetup signs with red arrows), take the elevator to Level 3 – If level 3 is locked, proceed to level 2 and walk up through RCL (Exit right from elevator, 30m then up the theatre stairs).
