    Good job by all of the presenters. Nick's pattern approach to HTML was one of the best intros I've seen.

    How do you get text to wrap around tables in WP? They always want to take up the full width of the space, even if width="150" is set.

      Which of the two 'tables' do you wish the text to flow around? If you're talking about the |“Your Safety is Our #1 Priority”| table, you might use a <div> instead of a table, depending upon the look you'rte trying to achieve.

    Can anyone recommend a good plugin for auto tweeting new posts?

    October 16, 2013

    • Brandy L.

      Hey Mindi - JetPack can do this. There are other plugins as well, but Mindie Kniss will be covering this plugin tonight at the MeetUp.

  • Brandy L.

    Can't wait to see you all there! We've got a terrific line up plus this is the forum to get your questions answered.

    See you at 6!

    Is the group still meeting on this date? Jeremy Saxey brought to my attention how PressNomics is occurring on this date.

    October 11, 2013

    • Brian

      Yes, the meeting is still on. We're finalizing the topics behind the scenes and will have the agenda updated in the next few days. Suggestions for 10 minute topics are always welcome.

      1 · October 13, 2013

    • Betsy C.

      Yes, as Brian said, the meetup is happening! I've just updated the Agenda. Seth and I will both be at PressNomics, but we're leaving the meetup in good hands.

    When importing a demo content .xml file I get "Failed to import Media" for all the media files, the other files import okay. What is causing this? This has happened to me several times with different themes on different hosts.

    October 12, 2013

    • Brian

      I guess pressing enter is bad on meetup. Here are the 2 lines: define('WP_MEMORY_L­IMIT', '500M'); define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMI­T', '500M' );

    • Mindi

      Thanks!
