Naoko, Tim, Shawn, Raphael, David, Trevor, Ed, Matt
We talked about…
- WordPress 2.8. Not everyone has upgraded yet – waiting for 2.8.1?
- Facebook content is kind of “scattered around”. Shawn said he started a WordPress blog wanting to write more.
- Windows Live Writer/Ecto – desktop apps for blogging
- WordPress Stats. WordPress.com has built-in stats, which is also available for WordPress.org [screenshots]
- Tim (@hogpath) said Role Scoper plugin for role management. Looks like a nice alternative to Role Manager. The author lives in Michigan 🙂
- Talked about BuddyPress… You can test it out by signing up on BuddyPress.org or bp-dev.org
- Raphael (@rsmudge) is presenting his project/WordPress plugin “After the Deadline” at the Ann Arbor New Tech June Meetup (today!).
- Some discussion about WordPress.org/MU merge.
- WordCamp San Francisco. Video will be up on wordpress.tv soon, I recommend Tim Ferriss’ presentation if I need to pick one to watch (besides the Keynote “The State of the Word”)
- Matt (@lincolnwebs) talked about setting up 2 sites using 2 DBs and one WordPress install: using conditional statement based on the domain in wp-config.php.
- He is looking into Vanilla forum software for integrating with WordPress.
- Also Matt’s PHP book recommendation: Visual Quickstart Guide (beginners) and Visual QuickPro Guide (intermediate) by Larry Ullman, and an Apress advanced PHP book (not sure which)
- Detroit Area PHP June Meetup is on Saturday, June 27th.
- David (@Admore) stareted a FriendFeed Group for the meetup. Ferndale WordPress Group
Thank you all for coming.
Reminder to myself: send a reminder on the night before the meetup!
