The only part of the September meetup that was recorded was Nilo Vélez’s demonstration of using poedit to quickly translate strings from US English to UK English.
At the September clinic there were a couple of replies to the question posed in the meetup “Do you have a WordPress problem to solve?” We may not have addressed these properly. Here’s an attempt to correct that for these two responses.
- What PHP code editor do you use?
- Advice on plugin development
WordPress 5.8 now supports WebP files.
In June 2021, the WordPress Portmouth Meetp conducted a Midsummer Clinic. We attempted to answer questions and problems raised by members of the community. Some were answered there and then. Others took a little longer. BTW: I’ve anonymised the questions and answers.
In January 2021, the WordPress Portmouth Meetp conducted an online Clinic. We attempted to answer questions and problems raised by members of the community. Some were answered there and then. Others took a little longer.
At the October 2020 WordPress Portsmouth Online Meetup – Gutenberg – the block editor there were a number of questions that were answered during the Q & A; and there were others that were posed but not fully covered. This post is a follow up for some of the questions.
For the remaining 6 months of 2020, the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup will remain online. I ( Herb ) will be creating the Events on Meetup.com and the website in due course. The proposed events are as follows.

Apart from July’s meeting, which was postponed for a week, all are being held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, from 7pm.
There may still be a clash with other meetups: e.g. Cheltenham, Manchester, Edinburgh. But we do start slightly later. You can, if you wish, try to attend more than one meetup in an evening. I don’t recommend attending meetings concurrently.
We’ll continue to use Zoom and will record some of the meetings. We’ll edit the videos before publishing them on YouTube. This may not be done instantaneously.
Thanks to everyone who attended last night’s hands on problem solving clinic;
- to those who were brave enough to air their problems
- and those who attempted to help solve them
We had a range of problems to solve. Some of them a lot harder than others.
Here’s a summary of the problems that I know were discussed. I understand that a few were at least partially resolved.
Starting from January 2019 the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup, aka WordUp Pompey! is changing from the 4th Thursday of the month to the 3rd Wednesday.
In 2019 we’ll finalise the meetups month by month.
This website wp-pompey.org.uk will have the draft agendas and topics for forthcoming months.
We’ll try to confirm the agenda before it appears in your WordPress dashboard.
We have a couple of new speakers lined up for our meetups in the first quarter.
Watch this space.
At the December meetup there were a number of topics suggested for Lean Coffee discussions and a number of members volunteered to give Lightning talks. This table is a summary taken from the flip chart. We plan to address these during our 2019 meetups.
