The East Bay WP Meetup had a party in honor of #wp15, the 15th Anniversary of the launch of WordPress. In addition to the cake, balloons, and stickers, we grouped together to improve our meetup space by adding felt pads to the feet of the heavy metal chairs in the cafeteria.
During our lively Q & A, we talked about backups, security, editorial workflow, memberships, the Genesis theme framework, and the Underpants Gnomes’ three-step profit plan.
During our open Q&A in November 2017, we talked about everything from local development environments to SEO sitemapping tools.
Our small but mighty Contributor Day 2017 team decided to put the Gutenberg Test Site to use and test the new Gutenberg editor. (Special thanks to SiteDistrict for hosting the test site. If you missed Contributor Day, you can still use the test site.)
