Every year, we attend WordCamp Raleigh. And this year, we couldn’t be more excited to go learn AND hear our own Sharon Dawson’s session on How NOT to Break Your WordPress Website!
Sharon Dawson’s Session on How NOT to Break Your WordPress Website
If you didn’t know, Sharon is our resident WordPress trainer and speaker-extraordinaire. She regularly speaks at local marketing conferences, including previous WordCamps in Raleigh, Wilmington, and Asheville as well as the Raleigh SEO Meetup Conference.
This year, her WordCamp Raleigh session is on how NOT to break your WordPress website. Why the emphasis on NOT? Because there are a lot of updates you can do to your website that seem easy, but can actually break the site if not done properly.
Her session will cover:
- Updating your site to the latest version of WordPress;
- Updating plugins;
- Adding new plugins;
- Adding 301 redirects;
- And more.
