More About WordPress

Having been a WordPress for over four years, I have collected a number of useful places on the web that are useful to those who are use this pervasive publishing platform and those who develop for and on the thing. Of course, there are more out there than those that I have collected here but a list has to start somewhere and I will continue to add to it as I find more.

Documentation and Tutorials

Codex

The first stop to check out for answers to any WordPress questions. Please bear in mind that it is a wiki and that makes it a work in progress. While that reality may mean that information could be incomplete (you could always offer to help…), it still remains very useful and it’s my first port of call when I need to know what a specific WordPress function does.

WordPress Garage

The contributions on here may be occasional but you could find them useful.

WordPress Planet

An aggregation of news and usage information created by the people behind WordPress.

WordPress Tavern

This topical website covers a whole load of news topics pertaining to WordPress and there have been a good few lessons that I have learned here.

WP and Legal Stuff

It seems that law makers are getting their oar in when it comes to website operation so this operation does no harm in a world where privacy policies and cookie disclosure appears to be the start of some kind of regulation. Certainly, a bit website auditing done before Christmas 2014 left me with that impression.

WPBeginner

As the name suggests, this is a beginner’s guide to WordPress. We all have to start somewhere and it looks as if this could grow with you along the way too.

Here are the websites of a few WordPress contributors that deal with aspects of the publishing platform.

  • All the views that you find expressed on here in postings and articles are mine alone and not those of any organisation with which I have any association, through work or otherwise. As regards editorial policy, whatever appears here is entirely of my own choice and not that of any other person or organisation.

  • Please note that everything you find here is copyrighted material. The content may be available to read without charge and without advertising but it is not to be reproduced without attribution. As it happens, a number of the images are sourced from stock libraries like iStockPhoto so they certainly are not for abstraction.

  • With regards to any comments left on the site, I expect them to be civil in tone of voice and reserve the right to reject any that are either inappropriate or irrelevant. Comment review is subject to automated processing as well as manual inspection but whatever is said is the sole responsibility of the individual contributor.
