You know what time it is? Actually, I think it’s around noon or so, depending on where you are in the world… You could also be reading this much later, which means it really could be anytime. So.
It’s time for community links! Everyone’s favorite weekend post is back with this week’s most edible WordPress content, from members all across the community. We have editorials, blog posts from WordPress heavy hitters, and tutorials worth saving, as always.
Have a look at the full list after the break.
First, blog posts:
- Andrew Nacin posted about his first year heavily involved with WordPress, since it has been one year since his first patch made it into WordPress. James Huff at WBTC congratulated Nacin, and Jeff Chandler weighed in on the post as well. Andrew, please accept our congratulations as well!
- Mark Jaquith posted about the new post formats, and how they sit alongside other WordPress taxonomies. Otto weighed in on the recent post format debacle. Jeff Chandler joined in with a few thoughts as well. Finally, WPBeginner posted a roundup of the features this will (likely) introduce. (Keep in mind, everyone, that this is an alpha feature that isn’t out yet.)
- James Huff at WBTC started an interesting discussion, asking: What are your favorite WordPress themes?
- Whether WordCamp attendees realize it or not, making the trip out can be costly for the various speakers who need to travel. To help cover costs, WordPress designer/developer and WordCamp speaker Tammy Hart is looking for sponsorship for WordCamp Louisville in a few weeks.
In tutorials and other resources this week:
- Andrew Norcross posted a solid tutorial on WordPress conditionals on the DIYThemes blog.
- Cory Miller posted to the iThemes blog a series of videos by Michael Torbert, the developer behind the All in One SEO plugin.
- Justin Tadlock put together a solid tutorial on how to best load files within WordPress themes.
- Josh Byers has part one and part two of his customizing WordPress tutorial up now. Byers presented his customizing WordPress talk at WordCamp MSP last week.
- Oli Dale over at WPLift has a nice roundup of over twenty WordPress code snippets. Of course the question is, do those go in your
functions.phpfile, or a custom plugin?
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.
