WinningWP FTW

Just wanted to let everyone know about WinningWP and some of the great tips, tricks, and resources that they’ve been sharing for the past year. Definitely worth checking out if you’re into WordPress and that sort of thing :)

Backup and Restore Theme Options

Posted by on

After taking the time to set a whole bunch of theme options, it’s nice to be able to make a quick backup of your theme settings. Many themes have this functionality built-in, but for themes that don’t, here is a plug-n-play snippet to create a “Backup/Restore Theme Options” page. You can see the snippet in action in the shapeSpace theme.

H5 Theme Update

Posted by on

Theme update! The H5 Starter Theme is all updated and afresh for your theme-building adventures. The previous version of H5 still works great, but there was a lot of room for improvement, especially with all of the new features and functionality made available in recent versions of WordPress. So now the H5 starter theme is better than ever and as always 100% free download for everyone.

DigWP Update – Version 3.8

Posted by on

Digging Into WordPress update! The book is now current with the latest version of WordPress, 3.8 “Parker”. The Parker update is focused primarily on improving the appearance of the Admin Area, along with the usual blend of bug fixes and enhancements. As with all DigWP updates, the new version is a FREE download for everyone who owns the book.

User Submitted Posts – Pro Version

After months of development, the premium version of my free User Submitted Posts plugin is finally available. It’s got hundreds of features and makes it easy to create unlimited front-end forms. Create customized forms for front-end post-submission, user-registration, contact forms, forum topics, and even art-directed content. On one site, I use USP Pro to replace FIVE other plugins.
