WP Realm is a
soon-to-be-launched blog concerning all things WordPress. This is a non-commercial community blog, focusing on the WordPress community worldwide, and redressing a current imbalance in WordPress blogs that are too often US-centric. That means reporting on WordPress news and events across the world, from France to Serbia to China to India to South Africa to the USA and everywhere in between!
Our focus will be on WordPress businesses, blogs, events, people and services. As a community project, we’d love for you to get involved, whether it’s helping with the design and development, to reporting the news, to writing an editorial, or just giving us your feedback.
WP Realm will be published in English, but we invite contributions from anyone, no matter what your first language is. Articles don’t need to be in perfect English as everything will be edited before being published. Follow the project or get in touch to get involved.
In case you missed it when this one happened: the WP Swag Store is back online. When I saw Jane announce the reboot of the WP Swag Store on Twitter the other day I got excited. However, after refreshing wpswagstore.com all day and seeing no change I just figured it had taken a bit more time to set things up properly. My expectations were off though, and not just about the URL.
Swag Store has opened again, but on a different domain and now powered by Hello Merch. But that Hello Merch is powered by VirtueMart and Joomla! caused me to go hmmm. I couldn’t help but wonder how that came about.
A while back I wrote about WordPress Theme Frameworks and whether you had taken a look at them yet. Today I’d love to share with you why I have used the Genesis Framework by StudioPress the last couple of months..
In my previous post on the topic I discussed the pros and cons and came to this conclusion:
For me personally, I’m all about options. I love working with a WordPress Theme Framework that allows me to have a very high level of control over how specific I want to be in what I want my theme to output. I don’t mind the learning, in fact I love learning, and when you know your way around the forums you’ll be able to either find what you were looking for or get a working answer of your fellow developers. Plus, having a Parent Theme that is continuously updated is big plus for me.
So even though you could argue a framework is bloat and adds a lot of stuff that you perhaps won’t ever need, to me that’s irrelevant because you only load what is needed and I could care less about how much kB the themes take up on the server.
