Roundtable Roundup: General Meetup April 10

The first Roundtable of the year was a conglomeration of a WordPress 3.9 walk-through and following group Q&A. Here is an incomplete synopsis:

WordPress 3.9: What’s New

WordPress 3.9 is scheduled for release in 4 days and Morten showed off some of the highlights of what is to come including

  • Widget selection and customization from the Customizer
  • Live gallery display in the editor
  • New Theme Preview for the theme installer
  • Changes to the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor

For a full overview of what’s new in 3.9 check out the official beta post. To run beta versions of WordPress on your own development site check out the WordPress Beta Tester plugin.

Plugins discussed

As always the Q&A produced a long list of recommended plugins. Here are links to the plugins and services mentioned, organized in a semi-ordered fashion:

  1. With every one of these solutions in terms of
    shedding pounds, people should understand that they’d eventually
    succeed after they become really committed in doing some from the solutions suggested
    with this article. The simple solution because of this concern is so that you
    can change their diet regime, avoid overeating yourself and
    you must avoid taking meals which are full of fats and calories.
    Drinking plenty of water will eliminate craving for food.

  2. Usually I do not learn article on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very forced me to take a look at and do it!

    Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thanks, very great article.

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get
    irked while people consider worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole
    thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  4. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really one thing that I believe I’d by no means understand.

    It kind of feels too complex and very extensive for me.
    I’m taking a look forward on your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the
    hang of it!

  5. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative
    and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this during my
    search for something regarding this.
