The Ultimate Guide to the WordPress Loop: Ah, the famed WordPress loop that runs it all. Ronald has done a very nice job of identifying global variables in the WordPress loop in the past. Much like that post, this guide is for themers and plugin developers who want the inside scoop with some technical details on how things progress and what each of the pieces of code mean and how they do their job. The release of the fantastic 2.5 Brecker, all of this useful documentation being put together by the community and the tremendous theme designs being released, makes me want to add some fuel to the fire and build up the fever pitch. Stay tuned to this channel for some exciting news.

WordCamps are awesome events that take up an extraordinary amount of time and effort to put together. I was lucky enough to be able to attend the recent WordCamp Dallas and I must admit, Charles Stricklin along with John Pozadzides did one heck of a job putting on a great conference. I thought it went over rather well and I have yet to hear anyone complain about any aspect of the event. As promised, Charles has published the first in a series of articles which will cover in detail what it took in order to turn WordCamp Dallas from an idea, into a reality. The first article contains information related to the very beginnings of a WordCamp event. This is the brainstorming session. The first three steps you should consider before going any further include: Gauge interest. Determine the overall structure of your WordCamp. Pick a weekend, and maybe even […]

20 Themes To Choose From

For most of you, WeblogToolsCollection.com has become your number one source for new WordPress theme releases. Since Keith introduced the small thumbnail previews and demo links, theme posts seem to be better liked by our audience. I appreciate Keith’s attention to detail and look forward to his regular theme and plugin posts. Smashing Magazine has published an article which highlights at least 20 free WordPress themes to choose from. Some of these themes look as if they could almost be considered premium but they are still free. My personal favorite is 5ThirtyOne while Probama comes in second. Although I’m a little bummed that the article didn’t feature Justin Tadlocks Options theme. I feel that it would have been a nice addition to the post. At any rate, make sure you read each themes license agreement as they can vary from theme to theme. This is especially true when it comes […]

I’ve seen a number of people tell others that WordPress 2.5 will have little to no database schema changes. It looks like that is no longer the case as MichaelH has pointed out. Changes to database schema from Version 2.3 to 2.5. *Table: comments Changed ‘comment_approved’ to varchar(20) NOT NULL default ‘1’ Added KEY ‘comment_approved_date_gmt’ (comment_approved, comment_date_gmt) Added KEY ‘comment_date_gmt’ (comment_date_gmt) *Table: links Changed ‘link_visible’ to varchar(20) NOT NULL default ‘Y’ *Table: options Changed ‘autoload’ to varchar(20) NOT NULL default ‘yes’ *Table: posts Changed ‘post_status’ to varchar(20) NOT NULL default ‘publish’ Changed ‘comment_status’ to varchar(20) NOT NULL default ‘open’ Changed ‘ping_status’ to varchar(20) NOT NULL default ‘open’ *Table: term_relationships Added ‘term_order’ int(11) NOT NULL default 0 Thanks to MichaelH for putting these changes together. This information is especially useful to plugin and theme authors as it lets them know if their particular project will break.

Jason Blanton of BloggingTips has put together a nice little article which covers five things you should do after you install your self hosted WordPress blog. These five things include: Changing the permalink structure Change the default theme Update your ping services Activate the akismet plugin Burn your feed with FeedBurner One item that I would add to this list is to figure out which stats program or service to use. You can use WordPress.com Stats which is a detailed stats plugin or you can use something like Google Analytics or MINT. One thing that I wish I could do if I could start over would be to integrate one of these nice statistical packages as they really come in handy down the road. Jason mentions that this is only the first in a series of articles which will cover various things that you might want to tweak as you […]

WordPress Development Blog: 2.5 Sneak Peek  I love the staccato description Matt uses to start the post: A customizable dashboard, multi-file upload, built-in galleries, one-click plugin upgrades, tag management, built-in Gravatars, full text feeds, and faster load times sound interesting? The first Release Candidate for WordPress 2.5 is out for those that have been waiting patiently to try out the new features. Matt details out the updates and the new features of 2.5 on the development blog and the good news is spreading in the WordPress circles. In addition to many underlying changes and updates to the code, the administration back end of WordPress gets a major rework in this version. The release candidate is not for everyone and can be downloaded for testing and bug searching. If you make frequent backups and you’re interested in helping us out with development by testing the new code, download and install Release […]
