Wow! Another #WordPressWednesday has come around and I’ve put together a roundup of great articles from around the WordPress community. It’s always important as a WordPress user to have some type of awareness of what is going on, whether it be nifty new plugins or themes, awesome tutorials to make creating and maintaining your site easier, or news on what’s happening.
Every Wednesday is #WordPressWednesday. Aside from this post, on my Facebook group, All About WordPress, I allow members to link to their most recent WordPress related article. The article shared must add value to the group and encourage discussion, so if you’re active on Facebook, feel free to join All About WordPress.
Below are some of the articles I found from around the community. I’ve conveniently allowed each link to open in a new window so you can read as many posts showcased here. Enjoy!
