Published on

Presented to the OKC WordPress meetup on June 24th. I shared how to favorite plugins in the WordPress plugin repository, how to use the Widget Context plugin to control what widgets show on what pages on your site.
Then I showed how to build your very own customized Google search engine and get it on your site, either in the body of a page or using a text widget.
Finally, I listed my favorite podcasts for learning cool things about WordPress.
