Setting up the Home page of your website using a pre-made layout template and a brief walkthrough on how to use the theme's Page Builder feature.

FAQs

1. Will I need to bring my own laptop?

No. We will have a Mac or Windows desktop computer for each of you to use. If you're more comfortable using your own laptop, then you can bring it. I'll also be using a projector so that you can follow along.

2. How long will this workshop go for?

We have the room booked out for 4 hours, which includes set up / pack up time. So if everyone can please get there early so that we can start the workshop at 12:30pm, then we can all get the most out of the time we have.

3. Can I bring food and drinks? Will there be anything provided?

No outside food or beverages are permitted within the Learning and Business Centre. So please eat before coming to workshop. However! There will be teas and coffees provided.

4. Are you just going to teach us stuff or will we be able to ask questions?

Sure, questions are encouraged! But because we only have a few hours, we'll need to keep the ball rolling!

5. Is this just a one-off one-day workshop?

No! I'm planning on doing more depending on people's attendance and feedback. So please let me know what you think and what else you'd like to learn by completing the survey I provide you with at the end of the workshop.

6. What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the workshop?

The Caboolture train station is only a short 10 minute walk from the Hub. If you choose to drive, there are many parking options:

  • All day free parking (until 9.30pm) in the multi-level carpark on Hasking Street (next door).
  • 3 hours free parking under Caboolture Hub and Town Square, lower ground level of the Hub complex.
  • 1 hour free parking in lane way between Caboolture Hub and the multi-level carpark.
  • 3 hour free parking behind King Street shops (near train station).

7. Why are you putting on this free website workshop? What's it in for you?

I'm glad you asked! I'm doing it for no other reason but to give back to the community in a way that I know how, particularly to small businesses. For years I would provide my services because I'd be getting paid or I would be expecting something in return. Where as with this workshop, I just want to give and contribute to people's lives and businesses with no expectations :)

8. How can I contact the organiser with any other questions?

You can contact me by sending a message from here or emailing me directly via hello@geofffranklin.com
