    Thanks for a great meeting! I'm looking forward to attending more of these!
    Paal Joachim, Thank you for your tips about Duplicator! That will be helpful. I will check out your other links too.

      Here is a backup to dropbox plugin: http://wordpress.org/...­

      Paal: from that page, it links to another site showing how to restore from backup. However, it's manually restoring process, and even that, they show you to use cPanel and phpMyAdmin to restore data. As I mentioned above, if you have cPanel or some kinds of hosting control panel likes DirectAdmin, it includes backup feature already. You can create full backup, and restore, when needed, with one click. It's much easier for end-users. So, in this case, I would not install that dropbox-backup plugin. More plugins installed, it's just opening more doors for hacking. Just my personal idea :)

    I was a bit late, but it's a good meetup. This kind of meetup can help people gain knowledge, even they are developers, designers or just users.

    Here is the video thumbnail plugin I use:

    I would recommend using Duplicator as a backup plugin that packs your full site into a zip (and can easily be moved and installed another place). Actually I found this page: http://www.katemoore.ca/tag/backup-wordpress-to-dropbox/

    WordPress is moving toward adding features into Plugins as they have done with the plugin mp6 http://wordpress.org/plugins/mp6/ . As it is easier to test features through plugins then just adding them directly into the core of WordPress. Over time the plugins can then be added directly into WordPress. They are looking at releasing 3.7 sometime in October and 3.8 in December.

    Here are a few sites that I have.

    Nok en gang på samme dato som IxDA.
    Er det ikke en ide å prøve å ikke arrangere WP meetup på dager da det er andre relaterte meetups?

    The meeting is tonight.
    I would like to know who would like to present something at the meeting. So we have somekind of program before the meeting tonight.

    I can if there is interest. I can show how to backup a site (using Duplicator) download it, open it up in Mamp make changes and then upload again. (Try for a short version of this so it does not take too much time or do a variant of this.)

    Let's get some movement in here..:)

    What about some good info (topics tomorrow):
    Creating category pages?
    Using Google Analyticator with Google analytics?
    Frontend editors and WordPress.
    A good way to use templates and how to easily create them?
    Other topics?
    We have professional WP people here that we can inspire to share some of their knowledge (preferably with live examples).
