A little backlogged is all I have to say – it was a very busy weekend for me and I’m just finally catching up on work that was supped to get done late last week. This happens on occasion and thankfully no ones breathing down my neck to get my stuff done – I create all the pressure I need on my own! Hopefully you had a great weekend and are looking at an awesome week this week!
Have you got a few minutes? Please help Siobhan and the team by filling out this simple survey to help make WordPress better! Thank you so much! Do it before the end of today why don’t you?
This is a brilliant idea by the WordPress team and I think it’s a smart way to solicit and receive support – it’s kind of like those “Adopt a Highway” signs that you see posted up on the road but much better, right? (And to be honest I have, like you perhaps, thought about adopting a highway at least once in my life.) The Codex is a completely free place to get information about the stuff that you need to make your WordPress life even better – they are managed through volunteers and receive contribution from even more volunteers who […]
Ah, very stoked about this news, for sure, as there is now a new spot for documents, planning materials, and training information for WordPress-related events. They’ve been building the database and finally it’s got it’s own “codex” that’ll house all the templates, content, or even “well written” prose that you’ve got. Drum up those emails and old blog posts that you’d like to contribute to the new codex!
Siobhan, who recently announced that she’s moving to full-time work with Audrey Capital, has shared some new screens and wireframes of a proposed new look for a better reference for WordPress code. They’ve made some great headway so far but are looking for more community feedback – this is especially important because for many of us the references available to us like the Codex are invaluable to our continued development and work. She’s already created a number of questions about navigation elements, other development resources, content options, and more. Here are some of the existing wires as they stand today […]
The WordPress ecosystem as we see and love it today is a result of contributions in one way or the other towards making it better. Since WordPress was released in 2003 a lot of changes has happened and it keeps getting better and adding more features and functionality with each major release. You can also remember how I shared my story about my personal journey with WordPress here.

Ever bought a stationary bike the entire family was ecstatic about using, only to see it turn into an expensive clothes rack? Then a few years later you finally decide to get serious about it and start spinning? In WordPress Universe, post formats are like that bike. The main problem with post formats is that they make theme developers do a lot of guess work. If you search Post formats Codex page, you’ll find words could and may thirteen times (combined), should is there only once, not a perfect implementation of Decisions not Options principle. The whole idea behind post formats was to create a […]
