      Russell, I was hoping that you would actually share your list since you had it included explanation of plugins.

      Hersh, the descriptions were straight from the wp repository pages. If you go to wordpress.org/extend/plu­gins and search for the above plugins by name you'll see everything I had noted and much more.

    This could possibly be an interesting topic. Are you going to dicuss specific ways of accomplishing this through WordPress? Meaning, is this going to be more technical?

      This Meetup will discuss using WordPress and various plugins related to using images in your posts and on your pages. It should be at a level that WordPress user at any level would understand.

    I had a very similar question to Hayden's. I wanted to know more about the speaker, and a Google did not turn up a lot. I found his Twitter and his website. But his website is mostly devoted to WP plugins and there are not many photos at all. I would really be interested in seeing more examples of PhotoBlogging before the event so I will be better prepared with "how did you do that" questions. No offense meant. I'm looking forward to a learning experience.

      Doug, I can come up with a list of good photography websites that use WordPress. I can also create a little tutorial on how to create one in WordPress. I just wanted to see if this was going to be more technical, or informative.

    • Doug H.

      Thanks, Hayden. I think my question is more like, what is the very latest in combining TEXT and PHOTOs. I've seen many sites that are predominately PHOTOS with only a minimum of text (captions) and many TEXT sites where illustration is almost an afterthought. Should be a good event.
