WP CBR May Social Meetup (10th Anniversary Birthday Party!)

The evening will begin at 6pm at Entry29 (located 17a Childers St. next to the Street Theatre) where we'll do bit of an initial meet and greet with some smaller presentations from

- Rory Ford giving an overview about Entry29
- Andrew Walker demonstrating Responsive Design
- Chris Mundy on "Things not to do with WordPress"

We've then organised a space at the Uni Pub just up the road for some drinks, food and socialising from around 7:15. As its a Monday night they won't have the full kitchen open but they do have $3 burgers (yes $3) available and drinks from bar for purchase and we'll be putting on some nibbles and pizza to kick things along.

Please RSVP and tell your friends! There'll also be cake and WordPress swag!

    Hi Guys

    Hope you can help

    Thanks

      Blocking google access to the whole wp-content directly is slightly weird. Mainly because people often want images/media in the uploads directory to appear in google image results etc.

    • Andrew W.

      Thanks Jason, good point. Ill need to allow media. This might be a good topic to discuss at our next meet up.

    Hi Guys. Good to see everyone again.
    I really liked the after discussions about site optimisation, in particular the use of sprite mega images and caching static html pages for faster load times. I’m definitely keen to use these techniques in future projects and learn more about them.

    Below are the links to some helpful resources for responsive deign as discussed, enjoy. http://www.splio.com/responsive/10_basic_tips_about_responsive_design.jpg

    Being a WP novice I found the evening to be very informative and a bonus was that is was a very relaxed, friendly environment. I look forward to the next meeting I can attend :)

    Have a great night guys. I've caught a lurgie and won't share my bugs with you.

  • Craig W.

    very sorry to be pulling out last minute. I spent all yesterday sick as a dog in bed! I am very excited about making a meeting, my fledging blog could really do with some support and advice

  • Charly L.

    Hi All, We've had a few people ask us for the exact address for Entry 29 and...... we're not sure of the exact address. HOWEVER, what we can tell you is:

    Entry 29 is literally next to the street theatre on Childers st. with a big "Entry 29" painted on the building. Childers Street Theatre is 15 Childers Street - so set your GPS's / Navigation for there.

    • Rory F.

      The exact address is 17a Childers St though your directions Charly are much more descriptive :) There is a car park out the front.

    Good day folks,
    If there is a Photoshop expert in the meet I would like to talk to you. Cheers, Das.

      Hi Kanna, not an expert but I do have two young ladies who work with me that may be able to help.

    Hi guys. All sounds good to me. Has any had expirence with contact form 7 plugin?
    Im currently having a few issues where by the form sends but no email is received

    May 3, 2013

    • Jason C.

      If you use a simple script like the first example on http://www.w3schools....­ do you receive anything, to any email accounts?

      May 6, 2013

    • Andrew W.

      Hi Guys, sorry for the late reply on this. Firstly, thanks for all response. I thought it might be spam too, but I couldn't find it in the email folder. I'll test out the simple php solution this week and let you know how I go. It may be easier to discuss this offline in detail, but I'll let you know how the simple script php form works out. Thanks again.

    Sorry, Guys and gals, but if there's a Meetup on the 1st, I can't be there. I know it's a weak excuse, but I'll be in Melbourne

    Plenty of lead time - and its a topic that I can claim to know something about!

  • Jason C.

    Hi Guys,

    We're actually going to shift this months meetup to later in May to coincide roughly with the 10th Birthday of WordPress.

    Details to be confirmed.

    Thanks and sorry for any hassle.

    Cheers,
    Jason
