Troubleshooting WordPress Training for Women

Hanni Ross

The Montreal WordPress Community is offering a special training session for women in conjunction with our fifth annual WordCamp. The training session will take place on Tuesday July 2, from 6-9pm at Station C, 5605 avenue de Gaspé, suite 204.

The Troubleshooting WordPress workshop is aimed at experienced WordPress users who need a little bit of encouragement and education to be confident in their ability to troubleshoot broken WordPress sites. This is a very specific course, and is not a new user workshop. Men are welcome.

This is a directed, hands-on workshop. Students will install WordPress locally on their laptops prior to the class using MAMP or WAMP. (Please note that no class time will be devoted to installing WordPress. If you need assistance with this, please come to the Happiness Bar on Saturday or Sunday.)

Students will bring their laptops to class and during the class the instructor will « break » WordPress in several different ways. Students will solve the problems in real time with the assistance of the instructor and volunteer TAs. This is a three-hour workshop.

This session is offered in English (though some TAs may be able to field questions in French).

Spaces are extremely limited. In order to attend this hands-on workshop you must first purchase a ticket for WordCamp Montreal, and then register for this special training event.

Les places sont très limitées. Pour assister à cet atelier, il faut premièrement acheter un billet pour WordCamp Montréal et par la suite s’inscrire à la session de formation spéciale.

Comment changer la couleur d’un bouton sans anéantir l’univers?

61ed2668d23b1a3c0ce30248da55af6cAvez-vous déjà modifié le styles.css d’un thème? Ça ne s’est pas bien passé quand vous l’avez mis à jour, n’est-ce pas?
Voilà pourquoi on crée des « thèmes enfants » (Child Themes). Ils nous permettent de faire des modifications, et même des remplacements, sans remanier le thème principal.
En plus d’une brève introduction aux thèmes enfants, nous apprendrons comment :

  • créer un thème enfant,
  • modifier des styles CSS,
  • ajouter du JavaScript maison et
  • utiliser un modèle spécifique à un Custom Post Type.

Tout ça, sans toucher à une ligne du thème parent*. La prochaine fois que vous le mettrez à jour, vous serez bien heureux de l’avoir modifié de façon non destructive.
* Promesse sous toute réserve 😉

Préalables : Pour les débutants dans le monde des thèmes, ainsi que ceux qui ont pris des mauvais plis dans leurs habitudes. Une connaissance de base des thèmes WordPress est un atout. Des connaissances de base du CSS et/ou du JavaScript peuvent être utiles, mais ne sont aucunement nécessaires.

Blog Like a Journalist

David HamiltonWe live in an era where so many different stories and experiences are made available through the Internet. This bodes well for journalism. And traditional media is noticing.

More news editors require their journalists to blog, and traditional news agencies look to blogs for news and trends. And in this landscape, it’s inevitable that the line between blogger and journalist is becoming increasingly blurred.

In this presentation, I will survey the media landscape where blogging and journalism meet. I will show where a journalistic approach and a blog approach may differ. And I will explain how a writer can maintain a high commitment to journalism, while also employing storytelling styles which are more compatible with blogs and their audiences.

Prerequisites: This presentation requires no technical knowledge of WordPress, but attendees can benefit from a casual understanding of different online and offline media forms.

Sites multilingues: le grand débat qui va enfin tout régler (yeah right!)

Comment gérer un site multilingue sous WordPress? S’il y avait une seule bonne réponse, on n’en parlerait plus. La question refait pourtant surface à intervalle régulier. Nous nous proposons de tenir un débat entre partisans des trois solutions les plus courantes en ce moment: Qtranslate, WPML et WordPress Multisite. La formule serait celle d’un débat électoral télévisé: chaque parti présente d’abord sa vision d’un sujet, puis répond aux question de ses adversaires. Les sujets abordés seraient les suivants: installation et configuration, utilisation au quotidien, extensibilité et compatibilité.

Préalables: Pour bien suivre le débat, vous devrez avoir déjà installé vous-même une copie de

Keep Your Code Organized! Templates, functions.php and Custom Plugins

Michelle WeberIn this session, aimed at people in the Blogger/User track, we’ll answer the question: « I started a blog; now what? »

We’ll cover five basic areas:

  1. Context (how to keep an active blog and your sanity)
  2. Customization (basic, free tweaks to make your site’s personality shine)
  3. Content (finding your voice and developing a content strategy)

Build a Website on the Moon: WordPress Development from Anywhere

Sarah SemarkFrustrated with building WordPress sites? I’ve been there. Travelling, I often find myself with unreliable internet, and I realized that my development process needed an overhaul. So, late one night working with the geckos in Cambodia, I set about optimizing the process. After a great deal of trial and error, I developed a series of tools that will allow anyone to better manage their WordPress development practises.

This talk is designed to help you get a leg up on streamlining your development process so that you spend less time mucking about and more time making a beautiful website.

We’ll touch on how to get a local development environment set up and optimized. Then, we’ll talk about how to set up git for version control. We’ll learn how to keep everything—from plugins and themes to database changes—in sync, even once you have multiple copies of the site running on different servers, and different people making changes to the content. Along the way, we’ll discuss any potential snags and problems, as well as security issues and ideas for optimizing development. Finally, we’ll discuss best practises for moving from a development to a production environment.

Prerequisites: An overwhelming sense of frustration with WordPress development, and an understanding of basic WordPress folder hierarchy.

jQuery and WordPress: Enhancing Sites with Client-Side Scripting

Brian HokeThis presentation will include a brief overview of jQuery, then I’ll explain how to integrate jQuery into WordPress sites, offer examples of custom jQuery development to produce some common site enhancements, and discuss how to customize some common plugins.

Prerequisites: I’d put the ideal audience member as more coder than blogger, but perhaps someone who is not expert at JavaScript and jQuery: a presentation that might be a stretch for the non-technical blogger, perhaps a little too basic for expert coders, but a good overview and useful talk for those somewhere in the middle.
