WordPress Weekend Resources – June 5, 2009

Last Updated on by

Another week has passed, which means more WordPress weekend resources.

10 Sites That Produce Quality WordPress Content – The title pretty much says it all. This post by Nathan Rice lists 10 sites that produce WordPress-related content on a regular basis. I can think of a few more quality WordPress resource sites that fit the bill, however it’s a good roundup nonetheless.

How to create a Simple Directory in WordPress using Grandparent, Parent, and Child Pages – This tutorial by Rebecca Markowitz over at WordPress Garage goes over how to set up a simple directory on your site. Includes all the code you’ll need, as well as a live site using the code outlined in the post.

10 Ways to Speed up Your WordPress Blog – This post by Alex Denning over at Pro Blog Design goes over 10 easy to follow ways to speed up your WordPress blog. Some are relatively easy to implement (deleting unwanted plugins) while others are a tad more complicated (adding spammers to an IP block list) however following some of these steps will most likely make your WordPress sites faster.

5 Useful WordPress Functions You Didn’t Know Existed – Nathan Rice makes the list again with this post about five relatively unknown WordPress functions, hidden deep with WordPress’ source code. I admit I knew of a few of them already. These functions can do things like send e-mails, or parse RSS feeds. I wonder what other useful (but unknown) functions are lurking in the source code.

That’s all for this week. As always, be sure to let me know of any recently published WordPress resources and they may be included next week.
