WordCamp 2016 – Vancouver

Mark your calendar – Saturday 27th August is WordCamp in Vancouver. Early bird tickets at just $20 are available until 9th July, at which time the tickets are $25 – a steal of a deal in my opinion (based on the last WordCamp held in Victoria that I attended, which was absolutely excellent). Hope to […]

We need WordPress Experts like YOU!

The Victoria WP Club are looking for people in Victoria, BC who use WordPress for a living (or who know enough to teach others a thing or two) to come and present to our group. We have changed our meetings to once per month and we aren’t necessarily looking for the same person to present […]

Authors and Selling Online

Authors Selling Online PayPal: Basic Facts Here’s a great article for adding a simple PayPal Donate button to your site (this article covers WordPress .org and .com options). Whether to have a personal or business account with PayPal? As far as I can see the drawbacks to a personal account are that the email address […]

Our Logo

How did our logo come about? Well, after a few iterations the logo I finally came up with is more simple than any others (which is always a good thing where logos are concerned, in my opinion). It shows two arrows; one facing each direction. This represents the philosophy of our group, which is ‘sharing […]

Monthly Meetups

We made a decision to reduce the number of WordPress Share and Learn sessions. Busy schedules have made it difficult to prepare properly for the bi-weekly events. Also, it allows a less busy schedule in the calendar for the Victoria WordPress Events Meetup; spreading out the events held by John Overall, Jon Valade, and ourselves. […]

Christmas Party 2015

Thanks to those of you who all managed to get out to the WordPress Christmas Party – it was a fun event. Thanks to Jacob for making such a great space available to our group, and to everyone who brought with them a great selection of food. Also, I thank the non-WordPressers for spending several […]

Our Sandbox

We now have a sandbox (sometimes called a ‘working directory’, a ‘test server’ or ‘development server’) so that members of this group can play around and try new things, without fear of messing up your live site. This is a safe place for beginners to be more adventurous and get something working properly before replicating […]

I created this site using the Enfold theme. Jon Valade of Ideazone gave a presentation to our group back in Spring […]
