8 sites to follow for every wordpress addicted

As a wordpress addicted, I’m regularly following a few websites to stay uptodate with the latest development news, new how-to’s and to get new inspirations. With this post I want to share the sites I follow, I hope this might be useful for someone to get inspired. Some of the sites are wordpress-only related, some cover many other website design & coding topics as well. The sites are in no particular order, so be sure to read through the whole article to not miss one of this great resources.

WpRecipes


A great source for code snippets, plugin suggestions and theme development information. The information on the site are presented in a very clean mode, and the ideas are really useful

Cats who Code

Great source of inspiration and code examples.

WordPress Codex

The Codex is the basis for every wordpress research. I sometimes call it the “php manual” for wordpress, every function is very well documented and a great ressource for developer.

  • Wow! I was looking for these! thanks for posting.

  • There are so many new things constantly being done with Word-press. Thanks very much for providing us with the best places to watch for new developments.

    Seriously, you could go crazy trying to monitor all the WP sites out there.

  • Actually, wordpress is a friendly cms for newbies. So everybody think it’s easy to set up and use, but when reading all the tuts above you just understand you are mistaken. :)

  • Sadly, inmyplace has been removed from our grad school preferred blog list.

    I say sadly because our grad students very much enjoyed the articles you have on the blog.

    Most bloggers don’t label as spam our grad student comments because they are definitely not spam.

    However, unless you have specifically blocked ToysPeriod (one of our scholarship providers) as a home site, Akismet has made the decision for you and blocked non-spam items.

    That is happening on all blogs with the Akismet plug in, forcing the College to ban WordPress for the purpose of grad courses, including this site.

    If you would like to be included on the College’s white hat list once again, just drop me a line at avoisin@lindachristas.org, and I will once again list you as a preferred grad student destination.

    If Akismet is blocking things that you haven’t designated as spam, you can contact them for remedy at Alex Shiel support@akismet.com or Matt Mullenweg at matt@mullenweb.com. Blocking spam is one thing. However, when valuable messages from people who you have worked to attract to your message are also being blocked, the potential customer, client, fan or in this case, grad student, just won’t return.

    When Akismet boasts of spam exclusion, unfortunately, up to 30% of all messages blocked are not spam.

    Hope to hear from you, so that we can reinstate inmyplace

  • wp’s codex and the blog cats who code is very useful.

  • WordPress users will surely get ideas out of these sites. In can help them improve their own personal wordpress site with the help of all posts they can read inside the 8 wordpress sites.

  • Awesome, thanks for all the links. I’ve been searching for some good wp sites to help me out. :) I appreciate this alot.

  • Some of them are new to me. Take a closer look on them :-)

  • Nice place, but it seems you haven’t update your blog for a long time.

  • hello there and thank you for your info – I have certainly picked up something new from right here. I did however expertise some technical points using this website, as I experienced to reload the site many times previous to I could get it to load correctly. I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times will very frequently affect your placement in google and can damage your quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I’m adding this RSS to my e-mail and can look out for a lot more of your respective interesting content. Make sure you update this again very soon..
