What we're about

The Toronto WordPress Group brings together WordPress enthusiasts of all types, whether you are a designer, programmer or end-user; beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

Starting with informal "pub social" Meetups in January 2010, we've grown through pubs, cafes, libraries, and office spaces. At our peak we were running meetups with ~80 attendees per session. We're now running a handful of different meetup series in spaces around Toronto, from Etobicoke to Scarborough.

The group is evolving, as is the meeting structure. With presentations on a wide range of WordPress related topics, and great discussion about all things WordPress, meetings are lively and interesting. Join us, and find out why WordPress is so popular!

WordPress Backend Tools: Database

Online event

Remote Only Meetup for Wednesday September 30th at 6:00PM ============================================================== How many times have you seen the following recommendation - "Be sure to backup the database before you make any changes". Well now you will have a choice of 3 good and free plugins to do that database backup - and quickly for you. What we will find is that there is a fair amount of overlap in the features for WordPress database plugins. Some do backups but also database migrations and cloning. Other do database compression and cleanup of all those revision and spam comment files. And others do ... we shall try to figure out your best Backend Database choices. And for those who are curious will be some database coding tricks. Goto The Web Database review for more details. [Password=TeamUp]
