April Meetup

  • April 18, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • The Green Man

An extremely high post-holiday workload, coupled with venue problems means that Thursday's meetup will be a simple pub meet.

We'll meet in the Green Man, which is where the first ever WordPress London (attended by five people!) was held.

I'll get on with organising May's event. Better make it a good one!

Directions

The pub is in the basement of 1 Poultry, which is directly opposite the Bank of England (Streetview link: http://bit.ly/15hUxbT).

We'll be in through the doors, on the left and in the raised section.

    Sorry I couldn't get there, hopefully next month. I am looking for someone who lives near me (Kings Cross) to give me one-to-one Wordpress tuition to teach me the stuff I can't remember how to do or have forgotten.

    Hi All,

    I am having a bit of a brain blip this Monday morning. Wondered if any genius is lurking around. I have a current a wordpress site that has some CPT and some pages, that should really be related to each other in some sort of hierarchy. For instance the CPT is for a Location and may have a "sub page" that has profiles of the members of staff.

    I know WP doesn't allow parent pages to be from a different post type, but could it?

    Found this in my search (http://janina.tumblr.com/post/3588081423/post-parent-different-type) but as it is two years old and I don't really see what they are getting at I am sceptical.

    Any thoughts?

    April 15, 2013

    • RobG

      Hmm the selection is ok for me, the parent page is even indicated in the page list. I tested this on a fresh WP install so perhaps there is something else in your theme/plugins that is causing an issue?? You may have better luck on the official WP support forums. Good luck!

      April 15, 2013

    • Sally B.

      Yeah this site is massive I am working on, so many plugins and CPT, trying to make it more orderly but it is anyones guess on where it is falling over. I will try giving it fresh eyes later and move myself over to a more official forum - Thanks for all your help.

      April 15, 2013

  • Adam M.

    Can't make it anymore, darn! See you in May instead hopefully! Have fun :)

    Hi all, some of you are probably aware but there is a huge botnet attack happening now against WordPress sites.

    It's basically lots of brute force password attempts against the admin user so make sure your password is complex and install the Wordfence plugin as it will help block incorrect attempts and more.
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordfence/

    If you are using CloudFlare then they are already blocking and have more information on the attack here: http://blog.cloudflare.com/patching-the-internet-fixing-the-wordpress-br

    Some of my sites are getting hammered but a 2 minute plugin install could save you a whole load of hassle if your site gets hacked.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    • Tony S.

      Thanks for the info rob - I've circulated the link on the WPUK mailing list, asking if anyone else has been able to track down more info.

      April 12, 2013

    • Tony S.

      See http://list.wpuk.org/...­ for more info on the WP bot attack.

    You're not going to hear me complaining about going to the pub! See you all there.

    April 12, 2013

  • Adam M.

    I'm not sure what your requirements are Keith, but I run events using the Roxy Bar and Screen on Borough High Street - lovely bar and a stunning projector setup. They usually do films, comedy etc events, but may be available - ask for Phil and say Adam from BadgerGP.com suggested it.

    April 10, 2013

    • Adam M.

      I don't pay when I use it and they are happy with that as long as its busy at the bar!

      April 10, 2013

    • Keith D.

      Thanks Adam, I'll definitely look into that.

    April 9, 2013

    • Keith D.

      Hi Eugene. I've sent those guys an email, thanks. Any other venue tips folks?

      April 10, 2013

    • Tony S.

      Venue tips - one that doesn't spam us with emails after the event (who could I possibly be thinking of?)!

      April 10, 2013

  • Tony S.

    Re Google Campus - Keith - this is predictable (a free facility and where it is) - I suggest you put in a block booking for the next 6 months...

    April 10, 2013

    • Keith D.

      You'd be surprised at how difficult that is...

      April 10, 2013

  • Fola Y.

    Yes...location would be nice ;-)

    April 10, 2013

  • Claire

    Is this meetup just for people who are developers and WP professionals or can people new to WP with questions come along?

    April 7, 2013

    • Keith D.

      Hi Claire. The meetups tend to lean on the developer side of things, but everyone with an interest in WP is welcome! We usually have a really mixed group.

      April 10, 2013

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
