This weekend we have another edition of WordPress Community Links. In these posts we run down all of the link-worthy materials we’ve found within the WordPress community this week. If you have a link to share that we missed, head down to the comments and let us know.
As usual, we’ve split up the links into interesting blog posts, tutorials, and bookmark-able resource posts. The links start just after the jump.
First up we have blog posts worth at least a once-over:
- Alex King shared his thoughts on WordCamp Seattle, in particular the interview he participated in.
- Andrea Rennick posted on her development from working without breaks, to working hard and playing hard.
- Justin Tadlock published an informal recruitment call for the WordPress Theme Review Team on his blog.
- John Godley shared his experience at the Automattic 5k, including photos.
- Ozh Richards tells the story of how he learned to program on a newly launched website.
- Joshua Strebel celebrated a special Page.ly birthday, in part, with a blog post.
- Adam Warner interviewed Ron and Andrea Rennick on his WP Pro Business blog. He is also running a giveaway on his blog.
Next up we have a few tutorials to make you a smarter WordPress user:
- Thad Allenger explains how to convert WordPress custom post types on the Graph Paper Press blog.
- Joost de Valk explained how to include certain code in a plugin on the front end of a site, and certain code on the back end. He also shared a tip, showing how to enable RSS feeds for WordPress custom post types.
- Justin Tadlock explained how to unclutter the post editing screen in WordPress. He also talked about how he went about creating a product page using WordPress and Hybrid Core. The product page itself was for his latest book, and is worth a look on its own.
- Michael Fields shared his conclusions on WordPress template parts.
- Jeff Starr posted a tip of his own for eliminating certain kinds of spam comments.
Finally, we have resource posts that you might want to bookmark for the future:
- The folks at WPBeginner put together a WordCamp infographic showing why anyone should attend one.
- Brian Layman of WebDevStudios discussed their recommendations for an Amazon Web Services cluster on their blog.
- Steven Gliebe guest posted on Smashing Magazine with a fairly detailed comparison of a few WordPress theme shops. Currently only 11 theme shops are covered, though it looks like it will be updated before long to add more.
- WordPress theme reviewer Chip Bennett provided a list of his tips for beginning theme reviewers.
