The WordPress Community Offers Advice To Beginners

We've all been total newbies. In fact, I spend most of my time still feeling like one. So researching this article was a great opportunity for me to do some more learning, and to share all of that good stuff with you. I reached out to people from across the WordPress community to ask what advice they would give to people just starting their WordPress journey.

Exclusive Videos And Interviews (Part 1)

In September 2012 we ran the very first Smashing Conference — friendly, valuable and inspiring community event — in a beautiful medieval building in our home town Freiburg, Germany. The conference was a huge success, and we haven't anticipated the fantastic feedback we've received during and after the event.

Social NetworkingBuddyPress: One Plugin, Five Communities

BuddyPress is social networking in a box, the loveable plugin that has people around the world getting social. But using BuddyPress isn’t all about waking up one morning and being struck by the amazing idea of creating the next Facebook. BuddyPress is a tool for creating communities. In fact, if you look at successful implementations of BuddyPress, you’ll see they aren’t Facebook clones, but rather niche groups that have put BuddyPress to work in growing their community.

BuddyPress: One Plugin, Five Communities

The 1.7 release should make BuddyPress compatible with any WordPress theme, making it even more accessible to potential community builders. In this article I'm going to look at some of them; five communities that are using BuddyPress, some big, some small, some established, some emerging, some successful and some unsuccessful.

Mobile TestingEstablishing An Open Device Lab

Managing a personal device lab can be quite hard with an ever expanding number of devices. It’s not only expensive, but also bad for our environment. Think of a situation where every web developer would purchase a large pile of gadgets and keep adding new ones as they are launched — this wouldn’t make much sense. Thankfully, there are better ways to handle the problem.

Establishing An Open Device Lab

During the spring of 2012, Jeremy Keith wrote on his website that anybody is welcome to visit their device lab at Clearleft’s office in Brighton, UK and use their devices. What they didn’t expect, though, was that in response many local developers offered to add their own devices to the collection as well. Two weeks later Jeremy Keith and Remy Sharp also presented this idea at the Mobilism conference in Amsterdam and the people attending loved it. A few months after Mobilism, similar labs started popping up in places like Amsterdam, Berlin, London and Malmö.

It’s Not All Doom And Gloom On The Web

The article is based on the talk I've presented at the Smashing Conference a couple of days ago, and you can also see the slides and watch the screencast.

Codecademy

I have been developing websites professionally for the greater part of the last 15 years, and written quite a few books and a lot of articles. Yet when I look around right now, I do feel incredibly... stupid and wonder if I should hang up my coat and do something else. Almost daily we see new tools, new best practices and systems to use, and a lot of them are very far removed from the original Web development technologies that are defined by the standards bodies.

Usability Testing In WordPressHelp Us Help WordPress

This is a personal request from your user, a rallying cry from a compatriot. I personally love WordPress. I make my living from it. The average user, though, couldn’t care less about it.

Usability for WordPress by Modern Tribe

They just want to run their business, tell their family history, organize their church, share their photos or live their life online with a minimum of impedance. In its evolution from simple blogging tool to CMS, framework and software ecosystem, WordPress is losing its way. It needs us to help bring it back and cultivate simple genius.
