Build Team Resources
All 48in48 sites are built on WordPress. We have a curated selection of plugins available at all our events that make building the website simple and effective.
These are lists of how-to articles and videos. Anything that has come up at a past event, we have written a how-to article to address it or found a video that covers it.
Many questions arise around what information we gather from NPs and where to find it. This will walk you through that, as well as how to navigate our staging sites.
