      On-street parking (if you can find a space) is limited to 2 hours at a time. However, it's free after 8pm so if you're parking after 6pm then you only need to pay for the maximum 2 hours.

    well done Rhys - its always nerve wracking having to speak in public - even more so when double the expected numbers of people turned up.
    I am already looking at how to speed up my site
    thanks for all the tips

    Excellent meeting - thanks to Rhys and Mike - a packed house! I think there's still a lot more to be said about SEO.

    Hey there Wordpress society I have a question: I've started using child themes, however am struggling with what is best practice to use in the functions.php of the parent theme for enqueueing stylesheets.

    Should I use: get_stylesheet_directory_uri() or something else?

    The reason I ask is that when I do this it outputs the child themes url, when I want to inherit the stylesheet from the parent theme, but still have the ability to override it by dequeueing the script in the child theme - I hope that makes sense.

    • Mike L.

      Morgan, this type of question is best asked on our mailing list, but I stuck some code here http://pastebin.com/y...­ which should give an example.

      Thanks Mike, I'll make sure I stick with the mailing list in future.

    Hi everyone! I'm looking for someone who has experience / interest in WordPress training to support my business venture WomenTech (WomenTech = Women + Mentorship + Technology;).
    WomenTech is a social enterprise aiming at women who need to work from home due to their circumstances. The goal is to get them into employment from 10 hours a week upwards, starting with website maintenance tasks. Any help or recommendations are very much appreciated.
