    Yeah it was a nice place to meet
    Adam - were you able to leave the subdomain WP site intact as a staging area when you moved to the webroot?
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    @Ellinastathi_twitter Have you looked at using WP Multi-site?
    ccz
    @ccziriak
    have stayed away from multisite on advice from WP experts I know
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    I've got a multi-site running pretty well... but I just looked back at the beggining of the thread for what Stathi was doing, and I don't think it's what he wanted...

    I've heard it can be resource intensive, and all your sites have to use the same theme, if I remember correctly
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    Not sure how it would be more resource intenstive (overall) than separate sites, although you might need to configure your PHP to allocate more memory. Also, the theme issue is long since fixed. You can configured separate themes, even separate plugins if you need to.

    @ccziriak
    Good to know
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    http://andalso.fyi - look at the site links (drop down menu under the gear) if you want to see it in action.

    I'm looking migrations I've done and I'm not sure I ever migrated a site from subdirectory into root on the same domain - has always been from a local install to either new webroot install or subdirectory install
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    That could be tricky, but I think my favorite deployment plugin, All-in-One WP Migration handles it ok if they're separate installs. Multi-site support is a paid upgrade tho, so I haven't used that on that site I linked.
    All-In-One handes most of the configuration and database imports. The only time I've had issues is migrating from older versions of WP where the theme or plugins aren't current, sometimes they lose configurations.

    @ccziriak
    cool multisite implementation
    is All-in-One WP Migration free or premium?
    for non multi-site
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    The base is free for non-multisite. Part of why it's a favorite. ;-)
    Dead simple to use.
    ccz
    @ccziriak
    will have to check it out
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    I started using it because I was using Desktop Server to do dev and deployment, and I found out that it wouldn't deploy to managed WP sites on my host.

    @ccziriak
    hey @NotTheDBA - have you worked with Gutenberg?
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    Hey @mhassell you wouldn't have to pay but our community room is probably booked through most of 2018 already. If it's not to loud I'm you'd be able to use a couple of our tables and we have wifi through the whole building
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    I have not.
    Matthew Hassell
    @mhassell
    @lantech19446 Very cool, thanks. Should we fill out the form still and run it past the directors and all? I don't want to have a clandestine meetup that causes problems at the library!
    ccz
    @ccziriak
    I've started looking into Gutenberg a little but keep abandoning it to work on a client site
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    What do you think of it so far?
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    We don't really even have a form, call 215-855-3228 and talk to Pat she books the room, I suspect they might let you use the directors office if you only have 3-5 people but don't quote me on that
    Matthew Hassell
    @mhassell
    Sounds good, many thanks! @lantech19446
    ccz
    @ccziriak
    it's very different - and pretty basic so far
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    no problem, and if you pick the right Saturday's I'll be here lol

    @ccziriak
    waiting to see how it will handle custom post types and whether ACf will work with it
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    Makes sense.

    @ccziriak
    i tried creating some custom gutenberg blocks but haven't gotten very far with it
    Stathi
    @Ellinastathi_twitter
    Just got back... now being called for dinner! Not familiar with WP so Randy - not sure if that's beyond my beginner skill level. I'll look into this more- Thanks everyone!
    Stathi
    @Ellinastathi_twitter
    So ccz and Randy, once the site is done, can I do some kind of redirect to the subfolder where the WP site lives, or will that not work?
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    @Ellinastathi_twitter You should be able to set that on your web host, or you could configure your .htaccess to redirect. The web host configuration is probably easiest to set up properly.
    For the record, I would do it a little differently... I'd actually set up a subdomain on the web host pointing to a different folder, get everything working, then switch the path the root domain is pointing to.
    Also - when you change the path, you will need to remember to update the Permalinks page. Saving the settings will fix any broken links pointing to the temporary space (as long as you haven't hard-coded them.).
    Stathi
    @Ellinastathi_twitter
    I'll have to talk to my hosting provider to translate that for me, but it sounds logical. I'm totally willing to try this. Permalinks.. I'm going to copy/paste your comments and research how to implement.
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    Feel free to reach out if you get stuck.

    @G7470
    How are you both?
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    I'm doing allright, how about you?

    @G7470
    Whatcha working on tonight?
    Pretty well, thanks. Right now shopping haha but will be working on a project later
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    Tonight I think I'm going to try to work on some pre-work for the bootcamp. It's a refresher on HTML and CSS, but really good information about new standards and some things I didn't know before.
    G7470
    @G7470
    When does the boot camp start?
    Randy R.
    @NotTheDBA
    Two weeks.
