While trying to help someone in the WP.org forums today I found a much better way to work with the WordPress comment form than I had been using in the past.
Here are two articles that I found that show how to implement it correctly.

Really great video by Michael Fields that he gave at WordCamp Seattle 2011.
Saturday was much less stressful for me. Since I had been there the day before I didn’t stress about getting on the right line or getting off at the right stop. On Saturday we made the opposite mistake of Friday we got there too early. The doors weren’t even unlocked yet. There was a small line of people when we got there but they weren’t there for WordCamp, they were there to sign up for swimming lessons, hehe. Once the doors were opened we helped carry the swag over to the swag table and get everything setup. I worked the swag shop while Chris worked the t-shirt redemption table. It was at the swag table where I heard the most amazing stories from Terry Chay. He is an alumnus of CalTech and he told all sorts stories about the nonexistant sports program and all about the epic pranks that have been pulled there. It was a lot of fun listening to them.
On Friday me and Chris decided to try and get to the Conference Center early to see if they needed any help and to hopefully not get stuck at the end of a very large line of WordCampers. Unfortunately we got to the Montgomery Street station just as the car was leaving so we had to wait 15 minutes for the next one. Since I had never traveled on this line before I was a bit worried that we were on the wrong line but once I sat down and I saw Mark Jaquith I knew I was going to be just fine.
This is part one of my wrap up series about my trip to WordCampSF. This is going to be mainly about my personal experiences so it probably won’t be all that interesting to most people but I really want to get all the details down so I can look back at it in the future and set some goals for next year.
When I first made the reservations for me and my brother a few months ago I was in conservation (cheap) mode so I choose the cheapest flights I could find. This meant that I had to get to the Sioux Falls airport at around 5:00 to make my flight leaving at six. This was a bit of a problem as anyone who knows me can tell you I am not a morning person. The first good surprise of the day was the flight to Denver. Before this trip my only other experience flying was going to Santa Fe for a school trip where we flew Southwest. This flight could not have been any more different. First off the boarding procedure was faster and more streamlined as United actually assigned seat numbers instead of the free for all system Southwest uses. Also once we got to our seats they were much larger and had much more legroom than Southwest.

Great post by Otto on how to really use the WordPress built in gallery features.
