The WordPress Weekend Roundup

Wow. Has this week been an interesting week or what? With people swirling around the GPL debate yet again there hasn’t been much else that people have been talking about – in fact, it’s generally been a fairly quiet week.

Of course, we aren’t aware of everything happening in the WordPress universe (at least not yet), but here are a few things that you’ll want to check out that we weren’t able to tackle head-on in the past 168 hours.

Enjoy your weekend folks!

    That’s awesome to see number 15 up there! I created our wedding website this summer using WordPress and a child theme of one of our themes called Announcement. We even decided to build our registry using WooCommerce.

    Mindy was awesome at planning all of the other details of our wedding, it was definitely nice to be able to provide some of my skills to help! And of course, using WordPress and more was icing to the cake. ;)

    Our site is still up here. – http://www.ryanandmindy.us
