The core team answers viewer questions on our weekly live video show. This week we will continue our "How would we do that?!" discussion where you give us an example site (in concrete5 or not) and we tell you about the architecture choices we'd make.

Franz and Andrew take live questions from viewers, give away free swag and launch the new "How Would We Do That?" segment, where the crew looks at a real, live website and talks about how they'd build it using concrete5.

Ryan just posted the current development version of the wordpress site importer to github:
https://github.com/concrete5/wordpress_site_importer

When this is ready for showtime it'll be a free add-on.
This was originally written by ScottC, then GregJoyce picked it up at concrete5. It's status is described in the README in the code, but it basically works, even with really large imports, but it's formatting is a bit rough and the data that's imported is not complete.

If anyone has energy to put into it it'd be much appreciated.
