Calling all local WordPress agencies in 2021

Towards the end of 2019, we published this blog post “Calling all local WordPress agencies”. In this post we outlined our objective to double the number of WordPress Portsmouth Meetup members from 130 to 260.

Well,

  1. We didn’t quite achieve the target – membership on Jan 18th is 242.
  2. Our growth was not in response to any effort to contact local WordPress agencies.

So let’s try again in 2021.

Calling all local WordPress agencies

In 2021 we want to grow the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup group’s membership. We want to attract more members from WordPress agencies.

We’ll be writing to local WordPress agencies to:

  • let you know we exist
  • invite you to our meetups
  • invite you to get involved in the local WordPress community

If you’re part of a WordPress agency, and we haven’t written to you, and some or all of your team are interested in finding out more about the local WordPress community, then please join the Meetup group and get in touch.

Let us know what you want

We want to ensure that our meetups satisfy the needs of the local community.

If you think that the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup is for you and your team then join the community and get involved.

Join our meetup

Join the Portsmouth WordPress Meetup group today.

If not, why don’t you let us know what we can do.

We want to know what you want to know.

Why are List blocks over on the left?

Earlier today Andrew Leonard and I were playing with the columns CSS property. When we were applying it to a list block we noticed that the block was to the left hand side of the editor. We were using the Twenty Sixteen theme. We tracked it down to some CSS that set the left and right margins to small values. Normally they’re auto.
