It seems as though there's no end to the gallery themes, slideshow plugins, featured content sliders, etc. with WordPress, but how exactly do you put these into action? Sometimes those 'quick and easy' instructions aren't so quick or easy. And sometimes it's hard to figure out just where you go to customize the way your theme or plugin works.

At this meetup, your fearless organizers, Natalie MacLees and Noel Sawwill be explaining and demoing the featured content, slider, gallery, and slideshow themes and plugins you want to use and making some recommendations of our own. Please post the themes and plugins you'd like to see explained and/or a brief description of the problem you're trying to solve and we'll tackle as many as we can, starting with the most popular requests first. Getting your request in by August 9 will give us the best chance of being prepared to show you what you need to know, so don't delay. You can send us your request by responding to this email or by commenting on the meetup announcement.

And finally we'll have a quick demo of the MediaPass plugin for WordPress that will allow you to monetize on premium content for your site with subscription plans. If you write great content, you can start charging for it easily with this plugin.

Thank you to the generous support of our sponsor, MediaTemple, we are able to offer this meetup free of charge for up to 75 people. Seats will go fast, so be sure to RSVP. Please, though, if you discover you cannot make it, update your RSVP to make room for someone else. If you're on the waiting list, don't despair - there's always a lot of shuffling about as we get closer to the event so there's still a great chance that you'll get a seat.

If the changes affect your plans to attend, please take a moment to update your RSVP. (You can RSVP "No" or "Yes".)

You can always get in touch with me through the Contact Us link on Meetup.
