WordPress London meetup #5

The group continues to go from strength to strength with at least 30 members attending.

This month’s meetup included a talk from BuddyPress developer Paul Gibbs. He talks us through the new release, the epic version 1.5.

Paul’s blog post, with slides, can be found here: http://byotos.com/2011/09/27/buddypress-at-wordpress-london-220911/.

Then Jeff Ghazally shows us how easy it us to sell music online using WordPress and the WP E-commerce plugin.

We also had a great presentation from Shakur about the SOLR search plugin and how it can be used to improve the search performance and capabilities on your WordPress site. Unfortunately due to technical difficulties (an over-heated camera!) we didn’t get this one on video. Sorry Shaksi!
