The WordPress Melbourne meet up returns for another month. Our WordPress meetup covers everything from choosing Themes & Plugins and setting up your site, through to theme and plugin development and everything related to Core.

We currently run one meetup per month. We try to alternate between end-user/beginner talks one month and development/technical talks the following month. As it all depends on availability of presenters though, please make sure you keep an eye out on the topics for the particular month once we update the meetup page with all the details.

We’re always looking for new speakers, so contact the organisers in the sidebar if you have an idea for a talk. We usually start the night with a light meal before the talks.

You can find links to past presentation slides (when available), over on our WP Melbourne website –

RSVP’s for this meetup will open 7 days before the meetup starts

== Let’s Make A Website! ==
Speaker: Joel Eade

Oh my. We’re going to register a domain name, purchase hosting, install WordPress, and get a basic website design implemented in 20 minutes… hopefully! 🙂

This talk is aimed at beginners who want to set up a basic marketing website but need a hand walking through the steps of creating a new WordPress website. We’ll use the free Elementor and envato Elements plugin to get a nicely styled website in a snap!
