Smashing Conf Barcelona

You know, we use ad-blockers as well. We gotta keep those servers running though. Did you know that we publish useful books and run friendly conferences — crafted for pros like yourself? E.g. our upcoming SmashingConf Barcelona, dedicated to smart front-end techniques and design patterns.

Welcome To The Smashing WordPress Section

With WordPress’ phenomenal growth, we’ve seen an explosion in the amount of WordPress-related content available on the web. There are plenty of beginner tutorials, round-up posts, and code snippets, but few good places to go for more advanced, in-depth content. With the Smashing Magazine WordPress1 section, we’re aiming for quality articles on intermediate-level topics, with an emphasis on developing smarter, faster sites with the world’s most popular publishing platform.

Also, we’ll be covering many aspects of WordPress, at a deeper level, and geared toward a more intermediate audience. If you’re new to WordPress, that’s fine too – we’ve got a series of tutorials lined up that will get you up to speed on techniques we’ll be exploring in future articles.

    Huh, I thought there was already a WordPress section. Maybe it was just a sub-section of coding before. Either way, I look forward to seeing what you can do with an already-great resource, Daniel!

    New way of Updating the WordPress core – in most cases now, this is just automatic as of 3.7

    New way of adding Custom post types – it’s probably more than a line and it should really be in a plugin for portability, not functions.php
