WordCampUK Program:

Gurbir is taking the lead for the Friday night fun

Chi-Chi has invited MWUG members to visit the WordCampUK venue, MMU Business School on Mon 21st June, 4-5:30pm.

Joining the WordCampUK mailing list is worth it.

Gurbir wants to produce a Delegate Guide for WordCampUK. It will contain a map with certain locations, programme, potentially a list of delegates. Gurbir will also try to get 10% discount at local restaurants for delegates.

WordPress on Mobile: How well does the WP Admin Area display and work on mobile platforms eg. in developing countries? Admin Area is still heavy, though more accessibility in 3.0. Front-end form or email may be best option.

WP 3.0 does not have a release date yet.

Mike enthused about Custom Post Types. They don’t appear in the Loop…apparently! [Ed. – I was referring in part to this article by Alex King]
