Important news for WordPress users

Many businesses use WordPress to create and manage their websites. But big changes are coming. Our digital expert Paul Teague explains.

More than a quarter of all websites are created by and managed using WordPress, the most popular online publishing platform on the web.

But big changes are coming. The entire interface that’s used to create posts and pages is getting an overhaul.

It could mean that some websites break and many users who were once confident with the platform no longer know how to use it.

The Chamber’s Digital Development Manager, Paul Teague, has road tested the new interface. In this podcast he explains what is changing, what the new platform is like and what businesses can do to be ready.

Paul is leading a WordPress webinar on Tuesday 2nd October from 7-8pm. To register, click here.

If you’re unable to attend live, don’t worry. Register for the webinar anyway and we’ll send out the replay video the day after.

Paul will also be delivering training on the WordPress changes, at dates to be confirmed, starting in the second half of October. To find out more email Catherynn Dunstan
