CHANDLER - Arizona WordPress Group

November Meetup Agenda

Hello Everyone,

Looking forward to seeing you at the Chandler Meetup at Gangplank.

6:30 -- Introductions

6:40 -- Preparing and Producing Content for your Website -- Greg Taylor

Even the most beautifully designed and coded website can fail without good content.  The content plays a key role in search results and conversions and can determine the overall success of your website goals.  Greg Taylor of Marketing Press will walk through a strategy to create and produce content to make your website shine.

7:20 -- Idea Swap

7:35 -- Information Technology and Websites -- Chris Diamond

Nameservers, web host, A record, MX records, what does it all mean.  All of these things play a vital role in every self-hosted website project. Understanding each and knowing how to navigate the system can take the fear of your next website project.  Chris Diamond of Hogfish Studios will take these puzzle pieces, describe their functions and help assemble them into a framework that you can understand and use.

8:15 -- Networking

8:30 -- Adjourn

 

Announcements:

Parking -- Be sure to park in the parking lot across the street from Ganpglank (between city hall and Circle K).  Click here for a parking map.

    At the meetup we talked about compiling a checklist of possible requirements for implementing e-commerce/shopping carts. Here's a public google doc people can add to - stuff I scavenged from discussions here and elsewhere. Or maybe you Organizers want to do it another way? Whatever works! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqV8PTu3VzCydFQ1WHpKOGtJNF9LbGV5X2p0cjFtb3c&usp=sharing

    If I lived closer, I'd be there! The Scottsdale location is closer for me.
    Thanks

    Unexpected change of plans...I am unable to attend tonight's meeting.

  • John T.

    Will the meeting be live streaming?

    November 12, 2013

    • Carol S.

      I will be late due to my daughters middle school orchestra concert and I usually handle the stream. If enough volunteers show up to help, they may be able to cover. But unfortunately, I cannot guarantee it.

  • John T.

    It will be fun seeing you and Sal there Sheri. We can sit in on some classes together.

    • John T.

      Thanks Carol. I will be coming.

      November 11, 2013

  • Sheri

    I'm using wordpress theme 2013 for Sal's website
    http://www.salvatorebarbera.com/blog/
    and on the blog page I can't figure out how to only show an excerpt of each post instead of the entire post. What am I missing?

    October 24, 2013

    • Sheri

      Kevin, that link was very helpful. It sent me to this link which may have solved the problem:http://codex.wordpres...­

      November 10, 2013

    • Sheri

      In a new 'post' there is a hanging tab for Screen Options. Click that and then you can check 'Except'. Screen Options, displayed as a hanging tab under the toolbar, allow the user to decide what fields or modules are presented in the work area for a given Administration Screen. Each Screen may have a different set of Screen Options.

      Click on the Screen Options tab to expand the options available for a particular Screen, check (or uncheck) the desired options, then click the Screen Options hanging tab to collapse the Screen Options.

  • Jim M.

    Any Buddypress Experts Available to help me with a project?

    October 30, 2013

  • Sheri

    Is there a way to migrate posts from one blog site to another
    easily?

    October 21, 2013

    • Carol S.

      Yes, in your dashboard, go to Tools > Export and you can export pages and blog posts and then import them into another WordPress install.

      October 21, 2013

    • Sheri

      Thanks Carol, that worked perfectly!
