21. Invasion of the Lightweights
Chris Lema drops some sense on the discussion about WordPress as an application and framework. Is he in the right? Or wrong?
22. SEO Plugin Price Change and the Intro of Thijs De Valk
A family-run business!
As the last name has probably told you, Thijs de Valk isJoost‘s little brother. He therefore has lots of experience working with his brother, and looking over his brother’s shoulder. These experiences, which began at an early age, have inevitably shaped Thijs into a nerd, whether he likes it or not.
Thijs is now also employed at Yoast, doing a lot of everything, mainly answering support questions and supporting with website reviews.
Sounds like fun!
23. Brian Gardner Releases His Custom Genesis Theme on GitHub
It’s a sweet-looking theme. Might give it a spin.
24. Automattic Growth via Joseph Scott
Having 48 new people in one year is amazing for me to see. That is four times the total head count of Automattic when I joined in 2007. Last year also saw Velda Christensen join Automattic, which doubled the number of Automatticians in Utah. 🙂
It’s hard to imagine that there is so much growth happening in one of the best companies in the world. Oh wait, that doesn’t surprise me.
25. A Bunch of New WP.TV Videos
This week we saw 6 new videos released on WordPress.tv – so here they are:
26. Why Washington Post Users WordPress
Incredible testimony here!
27. The Road to a Simpler WordPress Dashboard
Love this piece here which really showcases some of the major tensions and thoughts around the admin panel.
28. VaultPress and Security Response
One of the worst things that can happen is if your WordPress-powered blog or site gets hacked or becomes a security threat – you can lose valuable SEO and readers.
29. New WordPress.com Theme: Minimalizine
Might be just the theme for you in the new year!
30. Simple Security Tip via Sitepoint
Move the wp-config.php file into the folder above your WordPress installation.
For example, you may have a folder structure such as /home/mysite/public_html/ where WordPress is installed. In that case, you would move wp-config.php into /home/mysite/.
Simple enough, right? Yup.
