Discussed Automattic.com acquiring woocommerce. Scott demo’d a woocomerce site he’s building. Demo’d Gravity Forms/Woocommerce integration.

Anne asked if we could ask questions somewhere-either here or meetup.com. We should discuss/integrate a discussion board maybe.

Scott’s code for making custom shortcodes that show the last modified date:

// ==============================================
// ==============================================

function cc_last_modified() {
return 'Last updated: ' . get_the_modified_date() . '';
add_shortcode('modified', 'cc_last_modified');

And for responsive youtube videos:


.video-container {
position: relative;
padding-bottom: 56.25%;
padding-top: 30px; height: 0; overflow: hidden;

.video-container iframe,
.video-container object,
.video-container embed {
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
