1 Comment

If you’re looking to catch up on the week’s link worthy WordPress blog posts and community happenings, you’ve come to the right post. We have community blog posts, tutorials, and new WordPress resources this week.

Pretty blue links after the jump.

First, let’s dig into the new WordPress blog posts this week. Plenty of awesome stuff:

  • Ozh commented on the state of Plugin directory pages.
  • The blog started up a new WordPress “Heavy Hitters” interview series. Their first interview is Alex King. While we’re on, they also announced the launch of their partnership with Graph Paper Press. We covered the initial launch of their new partner program a few weeks ago.
  • Leland over at ThemeLab weighs in on the opening of DevPress.
  • Brad Williams shared thoughts on his experience at WordCamp Mid-Atlantic.
  • WordCamp Portland posted a nice roundup of their speakers and presentations.
  • As a followup to his editorial earlier this week, WPCandy’s Jason Pelker posted on his blog five ways he thinks ThemeForest could be improved upon. Jeff at WPTavern also compared the comments on ThemeForest to the complaints with the themes in the WordPress directory.

A few interesting WordPress tutorials popped up this week as well:

Finally, a couple of new resources opened up recently:

That’s it for links this week. If you run across something link worthy, don’t hesitate to let us know about it. If it’s worth a story we’ll jump on it, and if it’s best suited for a community news post it will show up in this space next week.

One thought on “Community news: WordPress heavy hitters edition

  1. Ahhh, I read the Patrick Daly mention as ‘screenshot’ at first, and not ‘screencast’. Now what’s funny about that, other than my third grade reading level, is the fact that it seemed like a completely acceptable statement.

    What can I say, WordPress makes your life easy.
