Hear about the latest features and updates in WordPress to help improve your content and website. Learn about how GDPR will affect your site and the digital innovations coming up, and how you can use data to calculate ROI.

WordPress powers over 30% of all websites on the internet meaning more and more small and medium sized businesses are using WordPress to run their websites. This seminar will provide an update on the latest features and upgrades in version 4.9 of the platform as well as introducing the latest and greatest plugins for WordPress, and how it can benefit your business.

Anyone that uses WordPress will understand how flexible and powerful it is as a platform but also how wide ranging and sometimes daunting its features can seem. During this 90 minute seminar Rob Gregory will demonstrate the new features released in the latest version, take a deep dive into some of the most popular plugins and offer some insights into what to expect in version 5.0 - identifying the opportunities it can provide to SMEs.

The seminar will cover:

  • What’s New in WordPress – Discover what the latest release includes and why you should upgrade your site.

  • GDPR and WordPress – Privacy and GDPR are hot topics at the moment. For anyone running a business website they need to understand how compliant they are. Find out what WordPress are doing to support site owners from a tech perspective.
  • Gutenberg editor preview – Take a look at the new rich content editor. Currently still in development but we’ll show you a preview of what to expect
  • What to expect in version 5.0 – Discover how to integrate different digital innovations into your business and how you can use data to calculate ROI.
