    Great Meetup! Lots of great tips on securing your WP website that even novices can do. Also, thank you for the pluggin recomendations. There are so many pluggins out there that it's tough to know which one's are good. And a big thanks to Future Media Concepts for their awesome raffle prize. I'll be taking the Deamweaver class at the end of Feburary.

    Thanks for having us. The event was very informative.
    I missed the first part of the presentation. Does anyone know how I can get a copy of the ipfreely app? Thanks.

    As usual, I learned useful things that I can put to work right away - in this case, security tips. Brad did a great presentation!

    Great advice about how to keep a Worpress website from being "hacked". Some of the tips are so easy that Wordpress should really just have users incorporate them into the installation process...

    Although this Meetup was a rare $5, it was worth it ten times over. Seriously.

    Very informative, great for the intermediate WP admin (that isn't a developer).
