Mashshare for Social SEO

I've been checking out Mashshare lately as a good social-media/share plugin. Besides delivering great features and a nice set of vector share buttons, Mashshare is lightweight and focused on performance. You can check it out at WordPress.org :)

Tools the Pros Use

Bauke Roesink rounds up 126 top designers and asks them which software they use for web and graphic design. Super informative article with lots of insight :)

WordPress Themes In Depth

WordPress Themes In Depth

Super stoked to announce my new book, WordPress Themes In Depth! It covers the entire process of setting up, development, distribution, and everything in between.

WordPress Themes In Depth is literally overflowing with over 450 pages of in-depth theme-building action. And it includes example themes and lots of project demos. If you want to develop, customize, and even sell your own awesome WordPress themes, you're gonna benefit greatly from this book.

Pile Gallery

Awesome new gallery plugin that enables grouped animated galleries based on categories and more. Sorta hard to explain but you can see how it works via the demo. DigWP people can save a few bucks on the personal or developer version.

Editor's note: 404 link removed.

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 :)

WordPress Backup and Restore Theme Options

WordPress Backup and Restore Theme Options

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 technique in action in my shapeSpace theme (100% free and open-source WordPress starter theme).

H5 Theme Update

H5 Theme Update

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

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. Learn more at Plugin Planet.
