Join the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup on 20th April 2022 for a series of Lightning talks from meetup members.
In November 2021 our lightning talks focused on SEO related tools, with Steve Wood introducing Ubersuggest, Mike Murphy demonstrating a number of Chrome Extensions and Herb looking at Google Site Kit. Videos and slides reproduced below.
This month we hope to cover a few more SEO related topics that may include:
Google Analytics – GA4 replacing Universal Analytics
Yoast SEO premium plugins: Premium, Local, WooCommerce, News & Video
We look forward to a number of live demonstrations from members and discussions of each tool’s capabilities.
We expect each talk to last between 10 and 15 minutes… Enough time to get the gist but not enough to go into detail.
If we run out of SEO related stuff we can open the floor to other topics.
This is a follow up post to What’s new in WordPress 5.9. It mostly addresses some of the unanswered questions raised during the demo. Where necessary we’ll be raising issues and/or provide feedback to Marketing, Core Editor and other contributor teams, as relevant.
The hamburger icon for the navigation menu only has two horizontal lines. It’s deliberate but we don’t know why. Maybe it’s a gluten free bun.
Q. Is some of the style being cached?
Mike Murphy was following the demo in real time, viewing cwiccer.com as I was making the updates. He commented that whereas I was seeing the correct output his view was incorrect. He questioned whether or not he needed to clear a cache. The answer is that WordPress is caching the stylesheet in transients. They clear after a minute. This explains what he saw.
19:55 Q. How to right align the footer navigation menu full width?
21:35 Q. What’s the purpose of these width adjusting bars?
23:01 Q. Can you just delete Proudly powered by WordPress?
23:40 Q. What about a Copyright notice?
31:26 Q. Are these patterns part of the page or template?
They become part of the template.
42:27 Q. Can we use these blocks in a classic theme?
