    Just saw this on the Dashboard tonight, since we were talking about image galleries. Here's a new one that is based on tags (and has a sweet name): Ninja Galleries http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ninja-galleries/

  • Marcus L.

    Thanks for the meeting. It was my first time attending. I learned a few things.

  • Wynston

    am not able to make it anymore. got called in for last minute uncle baby-sitting duties.

    March 28, 2011

  • Kat

    Looks like I might not make it after all. I'm just now able to start getting ready, and by the time I get there (7:25-7:45p) it will be standing room only. Grrr.

    @Loren - I'm sure others are interested in the Feature Box. If not, so sorry for not making it. This will be 3 I miss now. And yes, I'm throwing a tantrum. :}

    March 28, 2011

  • Jason T.

    Looking forward to the onswipe demo.

    March 28, 2011

  • Steve Z.

    As always if you have any folding chairs, please bring them tonight.

    March 28, 2011

  • Steve Z.

    Jeff, please plan on presenting. Alex can't make it now so this will be a great replacement preso.

  • Brandon D.

    @jeff - if you bring an iPad 2 to the meetup, you might not leave with it...justsayin. ;)

    March 27, 2011

  • Jeff H.

    Steve, I'd like to demo setup and use of two free plug-ins: OnSwipe, for supporting a Flipboard-style iPad theme and Blackbird for intelligently embedding tweets. And I'll bring my iPad 2 with the Digital A/V cable (finally mirrored output!).

    Kathy If you want to have wordpress websites that looks like squarespace, you might consider learning to use a customizeable theme like starkers:

    March 27, 2011

  • Jeff H.

    I'm interested in the ins-and-outs of setting up multi-site support but with multiple domains rather than subdomains or folders. I've got a dedicated server and am migrating a number of sites over, and this seems like an easier approach for managing WordPress updates.

    2 · March 27, 2011

  • Jason T.

    Second meeting, looking forward to it!

    March 27, 2011

  • Kat

    @Loren - I'd love to find similar themes to those on Squarespace.

    Has anyone also played with the Impact Page Builder (http://impactpagebuilder.com/) plugin? My father's interested in purchasing it, and I asked him to hold off til I asked the group.

    Thanks again! :)

    March 27, 2011

  • Kelly A.

    cheers Loren!

    Well you could use Jetpack which has statpress (.com stats) in it. But the best thing is Google Analytics. If you are using a framework it might have an option panel to drop in the analytics code. If not then i might suggest Ultimate Google Analytics plugin to setup the code in your theme.

    March 26, 2011

  • Kelly A.

    Hey kids, what is the best plugin to get stats on a WP.org blog?

    March 26, 2011

  • Loren N.

    @Kathy
    Squarespace is a blogging platform similar to Wordpress. What do you see on Squarespace that you want on WP. There are MANY premium themes out there.

    March 24, 2011

  • Loren N.

    @Paul ... something I will say yes .. sometimes no. Depends on how important it is for you to own your Brand (url) on all possible TLD's basically it's 5 domains so it's only 50 bucks

    March 24, 2011

  • Steve Z.

    I will open up some time for Q&A during the meeting for you to ask the group. I am not familiar enough with SquareSpace to answer.

    1 · March 23, 2011

  • Kat

    Is there a WordPress Theme out there similar to http://www.squarespace.com/? Do any of you use Squarespace, and if so, what are your thoughts?
    I think those are all my questions for this month.
    Thanks guys!

    March 23, 2011

  • Paul

    Do you guys agree with buying a bunch of tld's for your url? Like .com .net .info . biz .us. (I'm just referring to the ones that are basically US tld's.
    Thanks

    March 22, 2011

  • Kat

    That's the tough part, I'd like to have it do variety of things on various websites. :}
    On one, maybe a slideshow, on another a video/video slideshow, and whatever else the feature box is good for. :) I've read about it in the forums, but I'm the visual type, and I'm just not grasping it. Thanks! :)

    March 22, 2011

  • Loren N.

    Kathy, what do you want the feature box to do? i'll come up with a tutorial

    March 22, 2011

  • Kat

    Thanks guys, you rock! :D

    March 22, 2011

  • Steve Z.

    Thanks Loren. I'll make some time for it.

    1 · March 22, 2011

  • Loren N.

    I can chime in on the Thesis Feature Box

    2 · March 22, 2011

  • Steve Z.

    I will find some info and try to prepare something for Monday.

    1 · March 22, 2011

  • Kat

    Oh, and does anyone know how to add/use the Feature Box in the Thesis Theme? And what can be added to it? That'd be nice too. :)

    March 22, 2011

  • Kat

    Are there any good Testimonial or Review plugins, that allow customers to leave a testimonial or review? With the option of rating or not. I've searched and found mostly plugins that post them, but don't allow clients to add them. Thanks!
