6-4 meetup notes

Targeting April/May 2016 for next #WCBUF

Pat wants to learn how to customize her WP Blog. We showed her how to make a sticky post.

Ivory wants to back up his site. We tried the duplicator plugin, but it failed because he has huge mp3 files on his site, and his hosting provider doesn’t give him the resources. Wp-clone didn’t work either.  We showed him how to use soundcloud to host the audio files to save space.

We looked at email signup plugins like https://wordpress.org/plugins/mail-subscribe-list/ and maintenance mode plugins like https://wordpress.org/plugins/minimal-coming-soon-maintenance-mode/

Ivory would like a list of “essential plugins” for your WP site. Thoughts? Post in comments below.
