I realized as I was doing this post that we could litter this blog with a thousand-and-one blog posts about free themes every single day if we wanted to – and in some ways, I’d like to highlight well-done free themes, but there are so many so the #1 reason we don’t is that we simply don’t trust the source or developer (or we don’t know them personally). (But don’t stop sharing them with us – we’ll always take a look!) This one is by Konstantin Kovshenin who’s a very trustworthy source and someone that we really like – and he announced […]
It’s that time again! Let’s just jump right in – you’ve got a weekend to take advantage of and so do I – like do nothing, that’s what! Just kidding. “Weekend,” what is that?!
What a week. What a week. With a number of tragedies being reported all over the world it’s hard not to get pessimistic about the continuation of the human race. Actually, it’s hard to find motivation at times if you think about it too long. But great work is being done and there is more good out there than what’s being reported. So let’s keep it up folks! Stay positive – this too shall pass!
What a week it has been my friends! I’m not so sure about you, but this past week nearly killed me – trying to get back into the “groove” of things gets harder and harder and harder. But we survived the first week of April, didn’t we? On to the next one!
Our WPOI today is Konstantin Kovshenin from Moscow! He’s a Automattician, developer and contributor to Core. If you like his interview you can buy him a beer via his blog!
From time to time I like to sneak a peak into what other WordCamps and Meetups are doing, especially in the different parts of the world. Part of it is just simply morbid curiosity – I like to see what others are doing with WordPress, and the other part is a fascination with culture and the varieties that I’ve encountered throughout my life. One of the reasons for this is because of the fact that I’ve spent a good deal of time living in other parts of the world when I was a child and growing up and it’s something […]
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 […]
Themes are the public face of any site built on WordPress. But as developers, are we thinking too narrowly about how themes can help make our WordPress-powered sites better, more customized, and more complete? Two months ago, I published my first WordPress theme, Groundwork. Inspired by Growth Spark’s GS Starter Theme and Mark Jaquith’s WP Skeleton, at the time I called my attempt an “opinionated starter theme”. What I mean is that in addition to the basics, I also included other elements beyond the reach of traditional themes; elements of the site-building process which takes a sterile theme and makes […]
