WordPress Portsmouth Online Meetup – 18th November 2020 – WP Plugin Presentation

Join the WordPress Portsmouth Online Meetup on 18th November 2020 for a WordPress plugin presentation by Joe A Simpson Jr.

Lucky 7: Don’t Install ANYTHING ’til You Hear This WordPress Plugin Presentation

Joe A Simpson Jr

Most of us hit the ground running with WordPress – we have a site to build for a client or ourselves and install ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to help us achieve our goals. As a WordCamp Lead and WordPress Meetup Organizer, I often have to talk the aforementioned builders off of the ledge with the tips contained in this presentation.

I will share my Lucky Seven, a few must-have WordPress Plugins everyone should use, and why you should be using each. We will also chat about how plugins help you achieve your goals, level up, add value to your work with WordPress.

Lucky 7: Don’t install ANYTHING until you hear THIS WordPress presentation.

Joe A Simpson Jr.

Joe works at Metro Los Angeles, one of the largest transit agencies in the US, working to ease gridlock around Los Angeles County. When their Lead Developer and CSS expert both left to pursue other opportunities, Joe inherited a Headway-themed design (sans child theme) and the rest is history.
Faced with a life-altering heart event in 2017, he pivoted, focusing first on doing the things he truly loved – WordPress, creative passions, teaching tech, and truly giving back. He actively contributes to the WordPress Community, founding the WordPress Santa Clarita Valley and Elementor Santa Clarita Valley Meetups, speaking or volunteering at WordCamps, and is the Lead Organizer for WordCamp Santa Clarita.


All levels of experience of WordPress and website publishing welcome. We are a learning and development group. We welcome WordPress beginners.
