This week’s #WordPressWednesday includes a few guides like include security and web accessibility, a showcase of themes, BuddyPress news, and more.
Before getting into this week’s #WordPressWednesday roundup, I’ve got to explain to new readers what this special post is all about. This post originated out of the need to create a quick summary of the the most recent ongoings in the WordPress community. I read a lot of blogs each week, and many of them are WordPress related. So, #WordPressWednesday came about because of the fact that it fit well with Wednesday… yeah, I used alliteration (lol.)
I hope with this roundup, that in your busy week, you find some of these articles useful.
