Our Favorite Plug-ins

Everyone will share their favorite plug-ins and how and why they use them.  Also, bring any plug-ins you've had bad experience with so we can learn what to possibly avoid.  Pizza and beverages will be provided. Cost is $10.

    I want to create galleries that readers can tag photos in like FaceBook. I've found several plugins for it but WPStickies looks particularly good. Has anyone used it? Does anyone know how to do this with code?

    hi. Our two votes are for the Lake Zurich area. We will spend more in gas getting there and back and $10 is a reasonable fee.

    I called Bacci's in Spring Grove [masked]) Their side room is a great space, it would easily hold 50 people, and it's free. The only stipulation is that we would have to buy our pizzas from them which I don't see as a problem, they are similar to the ones we've been getting. Someone will just have to call and make a reservation. Bacci's is on the north side of Rt 12 in spring Grove.

    Hi Everyone -- Thank you so much for checking on that location, Maureen. I am also checking a couple locations in McHenry that are free for meetings. I'm trying to save the fee, but we may just have to bite the bullet and pay it. I hope to hear back from both locations tomorrow. Heather and John have rented a new office in Grayslake very close to the other location that they will allow us to use for the meetups. It will be ready sometime in September, so I think we will only have to have the August meeting at an alternate location. I will update you as soon as I know something. Thanks!

    Hello everyone. As promised at our last meet-up, I checked with the Holiday Inn on Route 12 in Lake Zurich (north of Rte 22) for a meeting space. We can have a room that sits 10-12 for $10 per person. The room has a large TV that a computer can be hooked up to. If 7 attend, the cost is $70; if 12 attend the cost is $120. A contact person is needed who will pay the entire amount and I can do that, and collect the $10 from attendees. If this sounds good, I would need to get back to the Holiday Inn with commitment and dates.

    Foundation Friday at Wordcamp MKE was great today. Heather's and Kari's talks ROCKED (of course!) WC MKE is sold out, but some speakers are sharing slide links on twitter (#wcmke) -- some interesting topics. I think a few of our Lake County members have tickets (Kathleen, Linda, Eileen?) If so, get there and I'll be looking for you tomorrow!

    Im sorry I missed it last night! Did anyone create a posting of good Plug-ins that I could see? Also, how do I send an email to Kari? I have sent several through the Meetup website but have gotten no replies. I have a customer who is looking for a Web Designer to develop their site. The work is just a little bit beyond me. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks, and Im looking forward to next month!

    Thanks everyone for sharing your plug-in experiences and best practices. I'm so appreciative of this knowledgable group - can we meet every day? Kidding! Seriously, though, thanks ALL for sharing so much (and Mike's notes), and to Kari's efforts to find us a new meeting space - go Kari! Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

    Thanks for the info, Kari. If we can make it at all, we will! Did you get my emails?

    Also... For everyone who is coming, just a reminder that the farmers' market is tonight, so parking may be a challenge. I apologize for any inconvenience!

    June 25, 2014

  • Kari S.

    Eileen - thanks for the reminder. Looking forward to seeing you! John - so sorry you can't make it! Keep in mind that we don't usually start until 6:30, so if you still get a chance to make it, that would be great!

    Hi Kari,
    Im planning on coming tonight but wanted to remind you Im gluten free and not to count me in for pizza. I just don't want you to over order…
    Thanks!

    Im so bummed! We only have one car and my wife will be stuck at work tonight, so I wont be able to make this great Wordpress Meetup! I am hoping that someone there might put together a list of the agreed upon best Plug-Ins and post them here. That would be quite useful to everyone. Enjoy the meeting!

    June 25, 2014

  • Kari S.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight! I'm excited to hear what new plug-ins we will be learning about!

    June 19, 2014

    • Christine S.

      Ahh, never mind. I've got a long appointment around the same time. Have a good one!
