Lorelle VanFossen has published a recap of her Mind Blowing WordPress Plugins session given on August 29th at OpenCamp in Addison, TX. To Lorelle, “a mind blowing WordPress Plugin is one that breaks the rules. It is unique and original in its implementation, and pushes WordPress. It might not be a Plugin that everyone must have on their site. It might not be a Plugin that even interests you. What these will do is to get you to look at the incredible diversity of Plugins available.” Her recap not only briefly covers the topics discussed during her session, but she also lists all of the plugins that were featured, and that list is well worth exploring. Even if you think your blog couldn’t possibly use any more plugins, you might find something that you (or rather your blog) just can’t live without.

The 300,000 Biggest Websites, Visualized With Their Icons: Gizmodo had an interesting post today about a chart/image that contains the favicons of the 300,000 most trafficked websites on the Interwebs. I thought the interactive version was interesting and found Weblog Tools Collection completely hidden right under the lower left corner of the Blogger icon. The traffic data came from Alexa and it was put together by Nmap.

Lessons Learned From Maintaining a WordPress Plug-In: Joost de Valk’s list of seven lessons learned from writing and maintaining a WordPress plugin. I was nodding my head all the while I was reading through them. Some of these are applicable to the general WordPress plugin developer while others are more particular to the individual project that Joost was working on but almost all of them are good advice. All in all, I think this is a good read for both seasoned as well as newbie WordPress plugin developers.

I have hard time understanding the basis of this article but I wanted to link to it because I know many in the WeblogToolsCollection audience are coders themselves and it would be interesting to see the conversation that arises from Andrew’s post. WordPress coders have no class. At least, that’s what Andrew says in his post that discusses object oriented code being used in a non-object oriented environment. What do I mean by a non-object oriented environment? Well, firstly WordPress still does not require PHP5 for core code so there are limits to how many of the techniques it can use anyway. Secondly, WordPress has been around for a long time and has been developed by many contributors looking to achieve specific things with each patch without having a particular architecture imposed, except by committee. WordPress developers tend to start as users who learn PHP in fits-and-starts when they need […]

Here in Northern Ohio, it’s been one of those chilly Winters. I wish I could attend the upcoming WordCamp in Miami, Florida on February 20th from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM (ET). The event will be taking place on the University of Miami Campus so there is bound to be great internet coverage. The speakers list is still being arranged but so far, Scott Kingsley Clark is a confirmed speaker who will discuss the PODS plugin. Other notable members of the community that will be in attendance are Matt Mullenweg, Mark Jaquith, Jane Wells and a host of other WordPress regulars. Registration for the event is currently open with tickets costing $30.00 each. Updated information can be found on the official WordCamp Miami website.

This post written on the WeblogToolsCollection.com forums as a news submission has been well received by plugin developers that have taken notice. The article explains how to include CSS and JavaScript conditionally so that the code is not loaded on every page of the site. If you think about it, there are many plugins that only do something once in a blue moon. Table of contents, text manipulators, galleries, sliders, etc, etc. If only they loaded their frontend code strictly when necessary, most page loads would suddenly become much lighter. This technique if implemented by plugin authors sounds like it could have a significant impact on end users websites, especially when it comes to loading times. I’m always impressed with the speed of WordPress when I install a fresh copy without any plugins. WordPress loads very quickly both on the front and back ends. However, once I activate 30 or […]

Throughout the course of a year on WeblogToolsCollection.com, there is a ton of information published about WordPress whether it be a link to something cool or a home grown guide covering a specific feature of WordPress. The purpose of this two part series is to look back at the best articles published on the site but it’s also to reflect on the achievements the software has undergone during 2009. While it’s good to keep things moving along into the future, it’s healthy to look at the past every once in awhile to measure progress.
