WordPress Community of Practice

The WordPress Community of Practice (WP CoP) is a group of campus WordPress users who work collaboratively to cultivate solutions and best practices for WordPress at Bates.

Our CoP features 1) A Google Group with forum and listserv, 2) Regularly scheduling Gatherings, and 3) User-guided focus and support.

By joining our Google Group, you can ask or answer questions, share best practices, and receive regular updates via email.

Each regularly scheduled Gathering focuses on a facet of WordPress that is of interest to the community. CoP members are welcome to share their experience and expertise by presenting to the group.
