My Philly Tech Week “Intro To WordPress Plugins” Presentation

As a part of Philly Tech Week, we held a WordPress-related class at the Inquirer/Daily News building on North Broad in Center City. It was a good event and well-attended.

Video may well be forthcoming, but for those looking for an earlier crack at the presentation I made, here’s the slide deck from my talk on WordPress plugins.


Easiest Online Backup Service - Backblaze

Note: This is not a paid plug (I’m not a Backblaze affiliate) — I’m merely a satisfied customer.

    • Custom menus added as widgets should no longer get styling from top-level menus

So go ahead and grab it from the official repo or simply check under your Dashboard -> Updates.

Happy downloading!
