    Ken Behn, Erika Jenns: Managing Multitudinous WordPress Sites Easily & Effectively

    WordCamp Rochester 2019Speakers: Ken Behn, Erika Jenns

    November 4, 2019 — How can you manage 48 WordPress sites at once? It’s a tall order, but at the Southern Tier Library System (STLS) we’ve accepted the challenge, and we’re excited to share what’s worked and what hasn’t. At STLS, 48 public library outlets each have their own, unique online presence in the form of a WordPress website. Staff tech skills at each library range from experienced web designers to first-time computer users. In order to support users with a broad range of experience and expertise, who also want to have a unique and distinct presence online, we’ve curated a list of recommended plugins and themes that are accessibility friendly and help keep sites up to date.

    In this session, we’ll share our list of themes and plugins that are working well across 48 sites, as well as some that we’ve tried that haven’t worked out. We’ll also delve deeper into a few plugins that help keep sites running smoothly, automatically – without someone logging in to manage updates. We’re focused on creating sites that are accessible and sustainable, and we’ll also discuss our process for establishing a list of best practices for new WordPress users, leading workshops about WordPress, and sharing news about big changes, like Gutenberg, in a non-scary way.

    Jonathan Kay: Anatomy of a WordPress Site

    WordCamp Seattle 2016Speaker: Jonathan Kay

    August 5, 2017 — WordPress has a lot of moving parts: the database, the web server, WordPress itself, your content, your plugins, your theme… It can be confusing to figure out how it all fits together. In this talk, I will go over all of the working pieces in a standard self-hosted WordPress installation, including things like what the webhost does, what files are present and their role, and how WordPress uses the database. It’s helpful to understand how it all fits together so that you can track down problems on a site, make improvements to a site, or just have a handle on what happens under the hood when you use WordPress.
