  • Nik C.

    Hey Will - I was hoping to come on Monday and booked a flight down from the Gold Coast especially. I see I am not on the list but I had booked in over a week ago when there were spaces (could be my dial up speed ADSL!!!!). I have booked again but alas now relegated to the waiting list. I am a WordPress Developer way up here and really wanted to get to one of these events (nothing up here at the mo that I am aware of). And now I'm flying in with no place to go. Can I perch on the balcony?

      Hi Martha,

      Thanks for spotting that. It was generated on the old schedule so I've cancelled that.

    Guys - it's WordPress' 10th anniversary and there are lots of groups world wide who are having a party to celebrate.

    Would you all rather drink beer and celebrate, postponing the meetup until the following month or do the normal meetup?

    April 30, 2013

    • Wil B.

      Nope - no fence-sitting allowed :-P

      May 6, 2013

  • Rohan S.

    Hi guys/girls, I need to re-engineer this site into a Wordpess site...
    www.herohoists.com.au, but retain some of the more 'hand-crafted' pages...
    Hope that there will be some good advice and some tips for me at the meetup...
    :)

    May 5, 2013

    • Wil B.

      Hi Rohan

      The site seems to make use of images quite a bit.

      Have a look at the Revolution Slider http://codecanyon.net...­

      It allows you to create full width animated sliders which could make your site "pop" without loosing that unique hand-crafted feeling.
