With another weekend comes another collection of community links. We’ve gathered together a collection of links from various corners of the WordPress community, and present them here for your approval.
If you have a link you think would make a good addition to next week’s collection, let us know.
First up we have blog posts that are worth your once-over:
- I missed this one when it went up, but it’s still good. Max Kanat-Alexander shared thoughts on open source communities, and what makes a good one. Read through the comments too.
- Eddie Machado published a post on selling code like you sell your design, over on the recently launched Theme.it.
- WordPress plugin developer Pippin Williamson has set up a new plugin-specific blog called Pippin’s Plugins.
- WPBeginner has a brief interview with Matt Mullenweg on WordCamps.
- WPWebHost has seen a redesign and is looking for folks to comment and tell them what the meaning of their new imagery is. Feel free to join their contest if you want, but really just head over there and show them how well-versed the WPCandy community is in WordPress-related imagery.
- Brad Vincent posted about the thought process behind his custom post type generator, built on Gravity Forms.
- The folks at WPEngine put up a post talking about their site redesign and hosting infrastructure.
Next up are tutorials, to increase the depth of your WordPress knowledge:
- Jeff Starr has a tutorial going through the various ways to loop through WordPress content.
- Jean at WPMayor has put together a tutorial explaining how to add buttons and CSS classes to the TinyMCE visual editor.
- The folks at Smashing Magazine have put together a collection of tips and code snippets for WordPress developers.
- Eric Mann published a tutorial showing how to publish a WordPress plugin to the .org directory.
Finally we have resources that might be worth bookmarking and saving for later:
- A new site launched this last week called Stampaxx with various social/web stamp icons, including a nice WordPress stamp.
- Boone Gorges released a few lines of code that you might find useful if you have run into the issues with pagination that he has in the past.
And that does it for links this week. If you’ve found others, be sure to drop them in the comments below. Or, if you have a link you think should be in next week’s roundup, feel free to contact us.
