Membership and Contact Management - General WordPress Meetup

Note: We are no longer at Lab1500! We'd like to thank Dan and Lindi for hosting us for the past year. Their space was great and they were always so accommodating. Unfortunately for us they are closing the shared space. We wish them the best on their future endeavors! So, for the next few months we'll be at the CIC. We'll talk more about what this means for the group long-term at this meetup. Please attend!

Topic

By popular request we'll be talking about using WordPress to develop Membership sites. How can you use WP to create a site with various access levels and permissions for groups of people. We'll also get into using WordPress and contact management. 

Speaker found! The talented Nile Flores will be hosting us this evening.

Location

We're meeting at the CIC, the Cambridge Innovation Center on Duncan Ave. Near the IKEA (Yes, I'm name-dropping the IKEA).

4240 Duncan Ave.
St. Louis, MO 

The entrance is on Duncan Ave. on the very corner of the building (by the Park Avenue Coffee signs). Head inside, straight toward the elevators. Take them to the 2nd floor. The exterior doors lock at 7pm so please arrive on time (if you'll be late let me know). We'll be meeting in the Honeydripper room.

Parking is on the street (no meters).

Agenda

Since many folks attend with questions in-hand we want to make it easier for them to get answers. Instead of making people wait till the end of the evening to ask their questions, we're going to dedicate the first 30 minutes of the evening to questions and conversation. Need help with something? Have a cool site to share? The is the time.

Roughly:

6:30pm to 7:00pm - Question & Answer time. Come to help others, ask questions, and socialize before the main event.

7pm to 7:15pm - Introductions and housekeeping.

7:15pm to 8:30pm - Main topic of the evening and presentations.

    Any of you have website that you create, please post your web address. I want to check it out! I assume it is based on WP, right?

    Good, nice review of plugins available to accomplish these tasks.

    Thanks Nile. Great presentation. Lots of excellent information.

    For those interested, the Groups plugin does seem pretty robust, including (thru add-ons) integration with WooCommerce and Gravity Forms, etc. http://docs.itthinx.com/document/groups/add-ons/ I'd love to hear the thoughts of those with a more critical eye than mine.

      Thanks Steve! I hope to expand on the material on my site, so it was really nice to do this, plus brush up on a few things to make sure I was covering the really reliable ones. :)

    My bluehost web hosting expires at the end of the year, and the costs have gone up a lot. Does anyone have a web hosting recommendation, and how not to lose downtime while changing?

      You will if you RSVP in the meetup app.

      October 21, 2015

      I enjoy Namecheap. I use them as a dedicated and a reseller. However, some of the people I've sent to the shared hosting have liked it. A2 Hosting is also a good alternative too.

      Both will migrate you with little to no downtime.

    WordCamp Saint Louis '16 is Officially on the plate for Wednesday. I suggest everyone who has never been at this location Goog it- a little tricky getting there:
    4240 Duncan Avenue, Saint Louis 63110

    If the street is full- there is a ton (or two) of parking in the back ans east side of the building

    See you ALL there or be... (you know the rest).

    I just got a message about the wordpress meetup being rolled into the St. Charles one. That isn't the general meetup is it?

    October 13, 2015

    • Chris K.

      Nope. That's the Dev meetup. :)

    This is an amazing space- if you have never been to this renovated warehouse space- you are in for a treat.
    This is as good as it gets! If you might be inclined to be renovating buildings in Mt Vernon, IL-
    I guarantee, it will be worth the drive.
