Council Webmaster Meeting / Training 2019

Webmaster Training Offered for New Mobile Optimized Council Site

Support Storytelling Online in the Alamo Area Council

by Angel Zuniga Martinez for the Alamo Area BSA: 1/7/2019


This is a meet up for registered adult Scouting leaders that either are, have been in the past, or have been identified as a 'webmaster' in support of the website www.AlamoAreaBSA.orgExternal Link of the Boy Scouts of America, Alamo Area Council (BSA).

We will be discussing and training on our soft launch to a mobile optimized, Council WordpressExternal Link (WP) theme site that still utilizes many of the back-end processes provided by our existing National BSA website vendor, CouncilwareExternal Link a.k.a. Scout Tools.

Representatives from Councilware will be in attendance to provide support!

Our new Council site will also be setup on the Genesis WP frameworkExternal Link with the most recent National BSA WP child theme to provide us with future growth and flexibility!

What’s a WordPress framework? And while we’re at it, what’s a child theme?

A framework (the one we will be using is called Genesis) is a powerful type of WordPress theme — the frame and body of the car — that acts as a design, security, and SEO foundation for our website. It also “future-proofs” our site customizations, so there’s no hassle when it comes time to upgrade our software with one click.

A child theme is the pure design element that rests on top of the framework — the cherry red paint job on that car. Or black. Pink. Green. Or Scouting Blue!

Please register and share you continued interest and support of the Council site!
