My WordPress Performance 101 presentation from our third meetup.
You are welcome to ask any question about it, feel free to comment.
This is a take on the old “What’s on your iPod?” question.
We had a great meetup (the 3rd one) with lots of valuable information for beginners and experts alike. The presentations were very helpful and generated lots of questions from the attendees and solutions to various issues as well.
During the course of the meetup, I wondered:
- What are those top 5 or 10 or 15 plugins that expert WordPress admins always install on the sites after a fresh install?
- What are those plugins that you cannot do without and for you are almost like built-in functions on a WordPress site?
So here goes. List the plugins that are your defaults, your go-to plugins, the ones you absolutely must have on your site. I think that this would be very useful for all levels of WordPress users (and is most definitely NOT meant to ignite a flame war)
Here is a quick recap of last night’s News section. Any questions, shoot!
There were a few important security vulnerabilities discovered in WordPress plugins this month:
For some of these updates, the WordPress Security team automatically updated the plugins remotely, using the automatic update system that was added to WordPress in version 3.7. You can read more about this process here.
This automatic update was really useful to patch a lot of WordPress installations in very little time, but some people felt uncomfortable seeing the WordPress security team update code on their site without their consent. Here is a post arguing against automatic plugin updates: On Automatic WordPress Updates.
WordPress 4.2 Beta
The next version of WordPress is just around the corner, and you can help test it! To do so, install this plugin.
To find out what’s new in WordPress 4.2, you can check this post: WordPress 4.2 Beta 1.
Of note, a better plugin installer, a new Press This feature, even more things in the Customizer, and Emojis.
We also talked about the changes to taxonomy terms: you can read more about it here. If you’re a plugin author, you’ll want to review this guide. You can use this plugin to find out if your site includes any shared terms.
If you have any other news to share, post them here!
Discover the Jetpack plugin, and why should you give it a try on your WordPress site.

Second meetup of WP Budapest group took place in 5th of February at The Hub.
This was the first meetup with presentations and a program.
First we had the introductions where everyone introduce themselves, talked about their occupation, relation with WordPress.
Then Jeremy talked about the recent news around WordPress and WordPress community.
We had two presentations this month. To make the presentations target broader audience, one topic was more technical and one topic was business related.
1 – “WordPress and the use GPL License” by Ahmad Alagha
2 – “customizing WordPress using functions.php” by Luca Speranza
Both of them were good and interesting presentations, actually at some points during presentations, presentation turns into a discussion session about the topic 🙂
Thanks for everyone joining the event and for those who cannot make it we’ll expect you on March meetup! Join us from meetup.com and facebook group.
