Another crazy week this week, right? I feel like there’s a never-ending flood of great content that’s being created about WordPress and related topics of conversation. It makes our jobs incredible easy and incredibly difficult at times because we have to identify the topics that we want to cover more fully and the ones that we can only point to and say “Go check this out!” In anycase, here’s your weekly roundup of conversations that you may have missed:
As commercial theme providers continue to innovate and experiment with their business models and find solutions that meet their demanding customer needs I like to canvas and call-out implementations that are both creative and clever. For instance, many commercial theme providers have a customer showcase where they share some of their “best” customers who have developed or designed off the base theme into a stunning beauty and wonder. Or, they will share some marquee clients and customers who are either big name individuals or companies that are using their product. All of this is with the intent of not only […]
Wow. Another crazy week in the land of WordPress and we’ve been at the very center of some big conversations. It’s been a fantastic experience to see the community pull out all the stops to support each other around licensing and the GPL. With Collis Ta’eed’s response in regards to Envato’s stance as well as a much more clear look at the differences between Automattic and the WordPress Foundation things are starting to settle and we’re starting to get back to business as usual. Actually, let’s be honest – it’s always been business as usual and most of us haven’t lost […]
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!
I honestly can’t believe that iThemes has been around for 5 full years! That’s such a long-time comparatively for many WordPress-centric businesses! They recently celebrated with a big post citing some of the neat milestones that have occurred throughout the years and where they are now: As I sit in my office at iThemes HQ in Oklahoma City today (our third for the company), working with a team of 24+ dedicated, passionate professionals, having released hundreds of cool products I personally love using, I am overwhelmed by gratefulness for the journey. Congratulations guys and here’s to another 5 years – we’ll […]
It’s been a very full second week of January as people are definitely back in the saddle and writing and publishing great content. Businesses are attempting to hit their stride as they shake off the dust from the winter break and products are being released left and right. Fantastic for all of us as we continue to grow our own businesses, personal, and professional lives – it’s just tough to keep up with it all! We’ve got nearly 50 resources in this one. Hope you guys have a fantastic weekend and make sure you check out WordCamp Victoria’s Live Coverage as well!
A WordPress site can be created in many different ways. Some developers first start with HTML code that they then “migrate” into WordPress. Others start with a pre-existing template and build off of that. But, many developers are turning to a more robust option: WordPress frameworks. With a pre-built, flexible code-base already in place, WordPress frameworks provide us with an efficient way to build a site. Instead of starting from scratch, developers can leverage a framework’s built-in code, options, plug-ins, and themes from which to develop. Think of them as starter themes to help you get going and eliminate the […]
