    Kathy reported back on testing Into to CSS at a MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on will help you find options in your area.: “Feedback from my colleagues afterward suggested a more thorough description of what CSS is before the walkthrough. The walkthrough took a lot longer than I anticipated even after eliminating one of the exercises. It took 45 minutes to get everyone logged in to multisiteMultisite Multisite is a WordPress feature which allows users to create a network of sites on a single WordPress installation. Available since WordPress version 3.0, Multisite is a continuation of WPMU or WordPress Multiuser project. WordPress MultiUser project was discontinued and its features were included into WordPress core. Practice Site Demo and 2 hours for exercises”
