Hi WP CHill Members!
No, you did not miss anything in January. I have been traveling in Ecuador for the past two months and am returning to the United States tomorrow. I thought we might just take a break for one month and reconvene in February. That would give us time to plan for the next WordPress Chapel Hill, which I think is very important.
The February WordPress Chapel Hill Meetup will focus on using Cart66 (http://www.cart66.com) for Ecommerce and digital downloads.
We will walk through set up, the use of shortcodes for products, how to sell digital downloads and discuss the different payment gateways using this very flexible e-commerce tool. And, we'll talk about how Cart66 has gone to the cloud and what the means for managing your e-commerce.
We will also demo two websites from DSW clients using Cart66 for their e-commerce solutions.
My goal is to ask Lee Blue, the owner of Cart66, to come down and talk to us about the plugin and share any useful tips. It will also be interesting to hear about how using Cart66 precludes you from having to purchase an SSL certification. I've asked Lee to come to present and am waiting for his reply. I'll update the Meetup notification when I get confirmation from Lee that he can make it.
