How To Learn CSS


SS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a language used for describing the presentation of a document written in a markup language (i.e. HTML).

Members will share strategies, tools, online learning programs, tips, and more. Marjorie Ray will provide a short introduction to CSS, then we’ll discuss selectors, siblings, attributes, flexbox, SASS, and more. We’ll also look at how to use the Customizer to make simple changes to your WordPress site using CSS.

All levels welcome.

Intro to Javascript and Two-Step Authentication

  • Thursday, April 27, 2017

    5:30 PM

    Marlboro College Graduate School

    28 Vernon St, Brattleboro, VT (map)

  • Marlboro College Grad School, Rm 2C
  • Featuring two topics –

    DOM Manipulation with JavaScript and jQuery, with Dan Berger.

    A gentle introduction to the world of JavaScript. We’ll cover element selection and event listeners with an interactive exercise that you can do in your browser’s developer tools.

    Two-Step Authentication, with Eben Gilkenson.

    Protect your WordPress logins with a 2-factor authentication system. Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds another security check to the login process, by requiring a one-time code that is sent to or generated by a mobile device or USB key. We’ll learn how to set up 2FA login options using three different plug-ins and show how to make it required for all users.

Making a Theme Your Own: Child Themes, Custom CSS, and More

You found a theme you love, but it’s not quite perfect. Aside from theme options, what tools do you have at your disposal to customize your new theme? In this workshop, Alex Martines of Just Peachy Consulting & Web Design will share some of the ways you can easily change the design and functionality of a WordPress theme, from Child Themes to custom CSS and using the Inspector to edit your theme’s PHP files yourself. No CSS or PHP knowledge required – we’ll be working in the code, but not writing much of it ourselves. Attendees will want to come with a computer and their own WordPress site they can use as a sandbox, if possible.
