Behind the Site: Mojo Themes, a WordPress theme marketplace


Ed: Brady Nord is one of the founders of the popular WordPress theme marketplace, Mojo Themes. Brady offered us a look behind the scenes of their site, which is (of course) built on WordPress. It’s the perfect addition to our ongoing Behind the Site series.

In this series, a WordPress site’s owner walks us through what makes their site unique and how it does what it does. At this point I’ll hand it off to Brady, who wrote in-depth about their popular WordPress marketplace below.

Behind the Site: Tripawds, a user-supported three legged dog community


Ed: Tripawds is, in all honesty, a very touching site. It is a community of bloggers and users supporting canine amputees. The site is run by Jim and Rene Nelson, and just so happens to be running on WordPress. Jim offered to share some background information on Tripawds when he saw our ongoing Behind the Site series.

In this series, a WordPress site’s owner walks us through what makes their site unique and how it does what it does. At this point I’ll hand it off to Jim, who wrote about he and his wife’s site below.

Behind the Site: Adaptistration, a blog for the orchestra business


We have no shortage of interesting and unique sites in our Behind the Site series. Today’s is no different. The site we will be hearing more about today is called Adaptistration, and it’s a blog run by Drew McManus all about the orchestra business.

And naturally it’s running on WordPress.

Drew will tell us a little bit more about the site and what plugins he is running just after the jump. If you see something interesting, or if you’d like to submit your own site for inclusion in a future installment of Behind the Site, leave a note in the comments.

I’ll hand the mic over to Drew for the rest of the post.

Behind the Site:, unofficial WordPress news blog


Today I’m happy to usher in a new post series on WPCandy called Behind the Site. It’s not much of a series right now since we’re at post number one, but we’ll get there.

Behind the Site is a series for sharing more about the inner workings of a WordPress site, almost the way you would an interview with a person. We want to get to know the site, find out what makes it tick, and see how we might emulate what it does. If our WordPress Workspaces series offers a bit of insight into the workspaces WordPress professionals work in, Behind the Site should offer some insight into what those professionals have built.

As I did to open up the WordPress Workspaces series, I’ll be offering up a site of my own for Behind the Site’s first round: this one. We’ll look at what makes up WPCandy, what drives it, and hopefully touch on what makes it a unique site.
