Another week has gone by, which means another set of weekend resources.
WordPress 2.7 User Guide – This is a free 56-page PDF download released by Spectacu.la. I skimmed it and it looks like it would be very useful to those just starting out with WordPress. While the PDF is free, they will also have an editable Word file available to members of their site.
Using Action Hooks in WordPress Child Themes – This post by Ian Stewart at ThemeShaper goes over how to use action hooks in your WordPress theme. Also includes a practical example of how to insert a “welcome blurb” on the homepage of your blog, without touching any existing code.
The complete guide to creating widgets in WordPress 2.8 – This post by Justin Tadlock goes over how to make widgets in WordPress 2.8. If you don’t want to read the entire tutorial, there is also an “example widget” download near the bottom of the post.
As always, if you know of any recently published WordPress resources, I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
