I’m excited to announce that I am doing a free webinar presentation for my good friends at WebDesign.com on June 23rd at 1pm CST (Central Standard Time). The webinar is on the topic of using BuddyPress to create an online community on your WordPress powered site.
I speak on the topic of BuddyPress often, as a matter of fact, I just finished up a presentation at the WordCamp in Raleigh, North Carolina this past weekend and it’s great to see how excited people are about BuddyPress. It also amazes me how many people do not yet know what BuddyPress is – or how they can use it to add that layer of social networking to their WordPress site!
In my webinar, you will discover the following:
- What BuddyPress is …. and what it isn’t
- The features available within BuddyPress
- How each of the features work to create a social network on your site
- How different web sites are using BuddyPress today to power their own social community
Click here to sign up for my FREE BuddyPress Webinar on June 23rd at 1pm CST. It’s free. It will last about an hour and is being moderated/emcee’d by my pal Cory Miller of iThemes and WebDesign.com
In February of this year, I published BuddyPress For Dummies (Wiley Pub.), which makes a great companion to my other book, WordPress For Dummies.Wiley Publishing wanted to publish a book on BuddyPress because they acknowledge the emerging popularity of the BuddyPress suite of plugins and how it empowers WordPress users to take control over their own social networking content. The book is doing pretty well and is a nice way for people to get introduced to the BuddyPress software, how to install it on your WordPress site, how to set up and use its great social features and how to customize it for your own community. If you don’t have a copy, pick one up today!
