    I have a blog (Wordpress-hosted type) that has stopped updating promptly in Blogrolls on other blogs (the Blogrolls can show the post info from a couple of weeks ago, even though I may have published later posts). This behaviour only started happening a few months ago, after I purchased the site name through Wordpress. Any google suggestions don't mean much to me & I'm not even sure if they are relevant to my type of blog (ie Wordpress-hosted). Any thoughts?

    Great! Far more relevant & meaningful than I expected.

    One of the helpful plugins mentioned: Redirection (http://wordpress.org/plugins/redirection/)

    Someone asked about the meaning of SLUG (the post title name at the end of a URL). This might help...

    Darn. I have to go to Newcastle for a work meeting on Thursday. Might not make it back in time, so I have taken my name off the list so that one of the wait list can have my place. Shame, as I was really looking forward to this.

    Sounds very interesting! I would be very interested in learning how Yoast might be able to generate sitemap.xml files from a WP local business directory site, for example generating unique URLs for each particular local business listing, and city URL. Just sayin' I would love to learn if that is possible as I e-mailed Yoast previously and not sure if it was possible.

    Thinking about recommending WP along with other open source CMS for a job I am working on. Its a Govt. website so security is an issue. If not covered during meetup, does anyone have any idea where to start? Security is not my speciality!

    Hi All,

    I have a request: I want to make a wordpress based custom website for my blog. I have almost 3500 people following my blog since last year and 50,000 hits so far but it is a out of the box website based on wordpress that restricts me to do anything else with it at the moment. It is a non-profit private blog that I have been running for public at the moment (http://talkingexperience.wordpress.com). I request if some one can help me setup a website for this blog and I can put add for your work and dedicated posts in the blog. Also I can do publicity for you and your business/work via my twitter account (almost 1500 people following) and facebook page and other social media setup for my blog. Kindly do let me know if you can help. Thanks a lot again. Regards,
    Kavita Joshi
