WordPress Tavern is Back

June 9th, 2011

Less than a month ago, Jeff announced the end of long-time WordPress community, news source, and podcast, WordPress Tavern. While all seemed lost, WordPress Tavern was picked up by an anonymous buyer, and as announced, Jeff will be containing to helm the community as always with no major changes in store for the foreseeable future.

This is definitely a major victory for Jeff and the WordPress Tavern community, who’s forum had often been the go-to place for the greater WordPress community outside of the walls of the forums. Well done, Jeff!

    Great, so that stupid spam in every dashboard from WordPress Tovern will continue? I was glad to see it gone (or slow down), now I’m afraid the crap will resume. Horrible!

      I don’t know if I’d call it spam, but I never found it to be of any use to me at all. I always disable those dashboard news widgets on every WordPress site I make.

        Good point, but the thing is – there is a lot of useful info there which I would like to continue getting updates on. But I was horrified when WP Tavern and then other crap, can’t recall the name at this point, was added to it, flooding the usable news with their crap, making it impossible weed through it. I would appreciate the ability to modify that feed so I can remove sites of zero value, but keep ones I find usable.

          The news widgets are configurable as far as what feeds are shown from specific sites, but I’d rather just visit the sites than have my dashboards flooded. I also use an RSS reader to get updates from site that matter to me.

          The feeds also wind up increasing the size of my databases. I had to use the clean options plugin to clean up my databases.

          The only site that annoyed me (which happened to have disappeared from the WP Planet) was WPCandy.
