  • Is Responsive Design Obsession Holding WordPress Back? (wpmu.org)
    Responsive design is the MVP, the prom queen and the hall-of-famer all rolled into one. But have we got to a point where responsive design is causing more harm than good? Is it now stifling innovation? Is it now actually holding WordPress back?
  • “Challenge” Pilot Episode: A Big Thanks (mattreport.com)
    Matt just finished recording the pilot episode of the Matt Report WordPress startup challenge. Some great entrepreneurs did a great job presenting and asking good questions.
  • Mastering WordPress: How Long Should It Take? (tommcfarlin.com)
    Here’s the thing: we applaud anyone and everyone who wants to work on mastering anything, let alone WordPress.Perhaps that sounds a bit idealistic, but we don’t think that’s here or there – people need to be good at what they do. As much as we wish we could offer more positive advice, there’s only a handful of things that can be offered up.
  • Ghost Launches to The Public (blog.ghost.org)
    This first public release of Ghost represents code contributions from over 20 people, from every continent on earth with the exception of Antarctica (we're working on that one). We have successfully created the world's first fully functioning blogging platform built entirely with JavaScript.

  • How to Localize a WordPress Plugin and Make it Translation Ready (wpmu.org)
    Localizing your plugins makes sense if you want to reach the widest audience possible. After all, two-thirds of WordPress users live outside the US. It only takes a little effort to make your plugins translation ready and is easier to do than you might think.
  • Registering Multiple Default Backgrounds (justintadlock.com)
    One of the awesome things WordPress theme authors can do is register multiple default header images. This allows their theme users to pick-and-choose from images that have been specifically optimized for the theme. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same thing about custom backgrounds, so this tutorial will show you how to do it.
  • Displaying Information of a WordPress.org Plugin on Your Website (wp.tutsplus.com)
    In this tutorial we will put the theory in action to create a simple plugin which will allow us to display details of any plugin hosted on WordPress.org on our WordPress website using shortcodes.
  • How to Set Up the WordPress Backend in Your Language (wpmu.org)
    About 30,000 people from 178 countries took part in this year’s WordPress survey, so a vast majority of people outside the US are using WordPress. And it makes sense that those people would want to use WordPress in their own language. In this post we’ll show you how to set up your WordPress backend in a language other than English.
