      Hi Vamsidhar, the RSVP system automatically moves people off the waitlist as spots open up. It will send you an email that you have been confirmed.

    If you have questions, please don't forget to bring them along tonight! We're going to whip through all the basics in about half an hour, and move onto general questions about the whole HMTL+CSS+PHP+JS+WP formula.

    For some reason in the last week or so, I am not able to post anything on my website or save. I haven't dont anything out of the ordinary. To fix it, I tried updating themes and plugins, updating my FTP server, and switching themes. Nothing has changed it. I have NOT edited the files or css. When trying to NEW Post, this comes up:
    "Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /homepages/46/d[masked]/htdocs/app[masked]/wp-admin/includes/post.php on line 569"

    Is this something like this likely to be addressed in tonight's topic?

      yes, disabled all plugins and made sure i was an admin user. trying to create a backup now (i have 3.8.2 and trying to install the new 4.0) but nothing seems to be working. too bad i only found this group last month and missed that meeting about backups..

    My laptop is completely unreliable (needs to be plugged in; wireless internet access is a fluke at best). Do I stand to benefit from these sessions at all if I show up without a computer?

    • Rick R.

      Hi Mike, a laptop is not at all needed for most of our events. We sometimes have "workshops" where a laptop is needed, but the majority of the meetups are presentation format and you only need a laptop if that is your preferred note taking method.

    Hi Rick, what is happening with our lost meetup at Carleton U?

    October 30, 2014

    • Rick R.

      We're planing to reschedule, but it will probably fall into the new year as the schedule is pretty tight this year.

      Thanks.

    I thought I would share a plugin I finally got around to finishing: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-notes-widget/. It is fairly basic and straight forward, but can be useful in many contexts. Also looking forward to your presentation Christopher! I find I always learn a thing or two when I learn about other's approach to Wordpress development.

    "long walks with shortcodes" ... lol

  • Christopher R.

    I'll be there, but since I'm presenting I figure there's a spot that I can free up on the RSVP list.
