How do you currently use WordPress?

Only barely do - have setup WP for one client on the server that runs their main site (on Plone.) Want to know more about WP in case we start helping them do more with it, and so I can ensure the server its on remains secure and that performance of other apps on server aren't impacted by runaway processes (memory hogs, etc.) in WP plugins.

What topics would like to see covered?

Just about everything - top/most useful plugins, how to secure and keep WP sites performant, how to write your own plugins, best hosting options, which stacks of plugins are most helpful for certain verticals, such as non-profit association sites, tech startup sites, community sites, multi sites, government sites, e-commerce sites, etc. Best approaches for theming, etc.

Are you interested in presenting a topic or doing a show and tell on your site?

Not at this point, since I'm a n00b on WP, expert on other tools.


I run Plone CMS consultancy. We get requests from time to time for WordPress, so I'm trying to gain some knowledge with it and network a bit more with WP folks to pull-in as resources on projects as they come-up.
