  • In this session we will go through ‘common’ problems with WordPress and what to do about them.  Common is way too vague, but what we will cover is the best way to troubleshoot when your site is not acting the way it is supposed to.  We will aim this talk at the beginner, our goal is to stay away from code and error logs to show you what you can do to troubleshoot your site if problems arise.
