Anyone who has been active in the WordPress Community for a few years has read, commented on or learned in some way shape or form from WP Tavern and Weblog Tool Collection. When both were transfered into someone else’s hand it a while back it was pretty much, clear to anyone with the deduction skills of either a front-end developer or a plugin builder, that the new owner had to be Matt Mullenweg ;)

.. well, now is as good as time as any. WordPress 3.6 is getting closer to it’s release, but it’s not quite there yet. Lot’s of CSS stuff needs attention as well, so there’s really no excuse anymore. Go and make yourself immortal!
It has been interesting lately to see how WordPress enthusiasts have been finding creative ways to get together. We all know WordCamps and meetups, of course, but in the last months we’ve seen the birth of the regional WordCamp, BuddyCamp, WordUp (a kind of larger meetup/un-conference), WP Camp, and even WP OnTour (whatever happened to that?).

There has been a lot of activity in the WordPress news world over the past year. Our own WP Realm has been gaining momentum and the new WP Daily has burst onto the scene as the go to place for hot off the press gossip. While these and other sites have been growing, others such as WP Candy, or WP Tavern have become very quiet.
Just last month, our own Brian Krogsgard launched poststat.us; its purpose is to provide a central collation point for all the latest and greatest from across the WordPress universe, allowing registered users to vote on what they deem relevant. Keep reading »
Just as the BuddyPress 1.7 Release Candidate emerged, so did the bbPress 2.3 Release Candidate. Jared Atchinson just announced this over at the bbPress blog
