February WordPress Meetup at AJ’s Cafe

In our last meetup, Anthony Montalbano (@italianst4) gave us a presentation on “The Power of Plugins”.

Anthony on Plugins

The plugins he mentioned are listed is at Room3064.com, and titled “24 WordPress Plugins to extend WordPress beyond a blog“.

Everyone enjoyed hearing Anthony’s first-hand experience in using some of the popular plugins and other lesser-known yet useful ones. You can read descriptions and reviews about plugins, but sometimes it’s much more helpful when you can ask questions and compare usages.

I have a short video from this but it’s not ready yet. Coming soon… Update: Posted the video.

After the presentation each of us shared a couple of plugins that we like. I’ll just list them with a short descriptions.

Though it’s not a plugin, Press This was also mentioned as a very useful tool (FYI: Noel Jackson, another speaker from our past meetup worked on this!). If you don’t have it yet, go to the “Tools” panel on your WordPress dashboard. You can strat using it right away.

For March meetup, Tim will talk about some WordPress shopping cart solutions, and Trevor will shocase a non-profit organization site he worked on with Tim. I will post the date & details on the meetup site soon.
