    I really enjoyed both talks - as always - and I enjoyed the post talk chat too! Such a nice friendly group!

    Liam's talk showed me a whole load of customisation of the backend that I had never even considered before! Can anyone remember which button it is on the WYSIWG that allows you to paste content in without all the formatting? That will be dead handy for my next project!

    And Ryan taught me a thing or two about China - I'm dead keen to find out more about the WeChat app!! Thanks all - hope to see you next month! :0)

      Thanks for the code Simon, I meant to ask you about that - I'm always encouraging clients to use paste as text but they don't always get the idea!

      Same issue as with you Jacob so I just went one step further - they never un-click it so it's a win win :D

    Sorry, I will still be in France then. I am sure it will go well and I look forward to hearing about it.
