June 19, 2017 — The white screen of death! You were simply uploading content, updating a WordPress plugin, or clicking on this neat thing to see what it does and then your screen goes blank. You cannot login to your website. You can’t even see your WP login screen anymore. HELP!
In this session, you’ll learn how to break your WordPress site by:
– Updating to the latest version of WordPress
– Updating your plugins
– Adding new plugins
– Adding 301 redirects
– And much more
Most importantly, you’ll learn how these seemingly innocuous updates that should be easy to make on your website can break your WordPress site if not done properly.
Attendees will learn that without the proper research, thought, and sequence of events, it can be very easy for a new user (or sometimes a very experienced one) to break their WordPress website.
They will get tips on how to avoid breaking their site and getting the dreaded white screen of death with a presentation with dry humor.
