    Brett, thanks for your great presentation and sharing the slides. This was my first WPMIA Meetup in over a year and I attended specifically for the content that you presented. I got much more than I'd expected which is a wealth of knowledge and resources to build upon.

  • David B.

    Sorry, just got room confirmation: Room # 1048/1049 - that's first floor (in our usual spot). There should be signs posted.

    I don't mean to come on as just[masked] but my name is Simpson... and wonder that this has my photograph but not my name. Sorry about that.

    • Mike R.

      Well you come across as a nice guy who is ready and able to learn, not like that know-it-all 69352; you can't tell him anything!

      September 3, 2014

    • Joy F.

      Lol @Mike

      September 4, 2014

  • Mike R.

  • Everett S.

    This will be my first WordPress meetup. Should we bring a laptop, tablet or just a paper pad for note taking?

    1 · September 3, 2014

    • David B.

      Whatever you want. It's not a workshop, so whatever you want for notes.

      September 4, 2014

    Parking Pass: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14006840/WordPress-AC-10-Lot_Sept4.pdf

    For those who are new to the meetup, if you want to park free without being potentially towed you must have a print out of this parking pass and park in the AC 10 lot (the lot is across the street from the parking garage that's next to the DeSantis Building).

    September 4, 2014

  • jim w.

    I haven't received parking pass yet for this event.

    September 4, 2014

  • David B.

    Our second section will be addressing questions from those in attendance based on the feedback i've seen in the past week.

    September 4, 2014

  • David B.

    Still trying to get parking passes. Expecting a full house tonight, so if you aren't going to make it - revise the RSVP. Also if you aren't eating, let me know. If you are, a few dollars (up to $5) donation is appreciated.

    September 4, 2014

  • Shawn

    I've taken over as editor of a few sites into which I would like to embed RSS feeds as searchable content (if not posts). Will this be among the topics discussed?

    September 3, 2014

  • user 1.

    and my computer does not recognize a php file. I'm really at the bare bones beginning without a real sense of how to proceed, though I have an picture of how the program should look.

    September 3, 2014

  • user 1.

    After downloading WordPress, the ReadMe text file instructs me to open wp-config.php to fill in my database connection details without further explanation. Can this be explained at the meeting?

    September 3, 2014

    • user 1.

      At this point I don't have a hosting company. I wasn't happy with the designs they offered, and thought I could learn to get started on my own.

      September 3, 2014

    • jim w.

      Yea, I could use some guidance on the proper way to start out as well

      September 3, 2014

    Hej!
    I`d like to attend but it`s quite far away, is anyone driving from Brickell and could give a ride?

    September 3, 2014

  • David B.

    Hey all, two things:

    1. If you have a suggestion for a second topic for the section presentation, let me know. We always get requests so I wanted to prepare something simple and straightforward. Otherwise i'll pick a random topic.

    2. Those *NOT* eating pizza, please let me know so I can not order too much (I pay for the food out of my pocket and I hate to be wasteful). If you are eating and can contribute a few dollars or $5, that would be awesome.
