Managing a Large Site With WordPress

WRK3 Workshops Track


SUNDAY, 1:00 - 4:30 PM

WordPress has come a long way in the past few years toward supporting large and complex websites, but that doesn't mean everything is simple or perfect when using it for a large organization. In this workshop, we'll review some of the tips and tricks we've used to keep our sites running smoothly, along with some pitfalls we've faced along the way.

This workshop is meant to be extremely interactive, and will go where the attendees take it. If you're facing specific issues or have specific questions about getting a large site moved into WordPress or keeping a large WordPress site running efficiently, we'll be working with you to answer those questions for the benefit of all attendees.

We intend to discuss some technical aspects about getting a large site set up and running as smoothly as possible with WordPress, but we'll also tackle a lot of general tips and pitfalls related to running large, unwieldy sites.
