    Outstanding MeetUp. Valuable information both from the presenters and in the get together afterwards. All of the speakers made valuable contributions.

    Big group this week. It was nice seeing some new people present, but Steve did a great job highlighting some new features of WP3.0. Good times.

    It was action packed and full of geeky goodness. I laughed, I cried and was inspired to new heights. Seriously I've been to many a user group over the years and this was the best yet. Great environment, super nice people and lots of people passionate about working with Wordpress. It was all good

    Many thanks to our Steve, Jeff, Zeek Interactive, presenters and participants.

  • Jerry R.

    I am very appreciative of the opportunity to be exposed to this kind of information. Thank you very much.

    April 26, 2010

  • Gahlord D.

    Super friendly crew, great knowledge sharing.

    Can we please move the plug in discussion to the message board? http://www.meetup.com/OC-Wordpress-Group/messages/boards/

    I've spent hours playing with Plugins this past weekend, by far the best /cleanest one for Facebook Like is fbLikeButton . It gives you options on where you want it etc and can turn off on specific areas etc. All the others have issues IMHO.

    April 26, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    Let's play it by ear. I can always push my custom panel demo to next month.

    April 26, 2010

  • Gahlord D.

    I'm cool skipping the Open Graph implementation if there isn't time, I don't want to crash the party with it. Or I could promise to do it in 5 minutes or less. I think there are some strategic considerations beyond the technical implementation that would be worth a few minutes of our time.

    April 26, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    I met the WP Vibe guys on Saturday. They did a post about it as well: http://wpvibe.com/facebook-like-plugin-wordpress-269/

  • Linda S.

    Wow. Thanks Morgan! and Steve. Let me say I don't want to short the Thesis section which is my primary interest. It's just implementing "like" is so so hot right now. If it gets some attention that would be great.

    April 26, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    We are running short on chairs for tonight's meeting. If you have a couple folding chairs, beach chairs, etc, please bring them along.

    April 26, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    Yes, we will fit it all in...somehow. :)

    April 26, 2010

  • Linda S.

    Steve - Might we let the meeting run a bit later to get Gahlord's implementation walkthrough - and other input - on implementing "like" on WP posts? BTW do you know anyone close to delivering a Plug-In for this?

    April 26, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    Sweet Elle is the best place around. Great coffee and free wifi. Tell Grace that you know me. http://budurl.com/ymcf

    April 26, 2010

  • Gahlord D.

    If someone can let me know of a non-starbucks local-ish coffee shop with wi-fi in the area (I'm from out of OC and just in town this week), I'd be glad to do a FB "like" implementation walkthrough--it'd be template hackng, not a plugin (but that's the first step of any plugin anyway, right?). I can make it short and sweet.

    April 26, 2010

  • Linda S.

    I am very much looking forward to the Thesis demo. I also imagine that many of us in the room are sorting out how to implement a "like" button on individual posts something like http://readwriteweb.com or Mashable.com

    April 26, 2010

  • Jeff T.

    Shaping up to be a great meeting. Wish I could be there for this one.

    April 25, 2010

  • Priscilla C.

    Perfect timing for my first OC Wordpress meetup! I'm a Thesis user too. Looking forward to gaining new insight. Thanks to Jeff and Steve for pulling this group together.

    April 25, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    Please join me for drinks and a game of billiards after the meeting. Let's meet down the street at the House of Brews: http://budurl.com/houseofbrews

    April 25, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    Jon, I think we're covered on Thesis presenters for tomorrow, but we can definitely benefit from having your expertise in the room.

    April 25, 2010

  • Jon B.

    I have some Thesis experince as well. I'm guessing others may have more but let know if you'd like another voice on Thesis.

    April 25, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    Mary, Scott & Loren- I would like you all to lead a part of the Thesis demo. Please email me at [masked] to discuss.

    April 25, 2010

  • Mary Ann E.

    I can contribute to the Thesis demo as well. I have built a number of sites using it. I will bring some food as well.

    April 24, 2010

  • Loren N.

    I'll bring some sorta snack like chips and dip? or Veggie Tray?

    I'll do the Thesis Demo if you would like

    April 24, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    Can anyone give an in-depth Thesis demo on Monday? I have just started playing with it, but not sure I am comfortable giving a demo yet...

    April 24, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    Still looking for people to volunteer to bring food. Please let me know what you can bring...

    April 24, 2010

  • Vicki L.

    I'll bring a bottle of wine (please provide an opener - I lost my portable one at the January meeting!) If I have time, I'll bake some cookies too.

    April 15, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    Looks like we are going to have a great crowd for this next meeting! If you can, please bring food and/or drinks. Comment here with what you are planning on bringing...

    April 15, 2010

  • Mary Ann E.

    No way I will miss this one. Just not enough hours to learn both this and Thesis. I'm looking forward to any shortcuts you might have.

    April 4, 2010

  • Steve Z.

    Wordpress 3 Beta 1 was just released:
    http://wordpress.org/development/2010/04/wordpress-3-0-beta-1/

    I will be giving a demo of this at the meeting.
