This is a new series I’m going to start in which I will be sharing all the posts I’ve written about WordPress in the past week.
Hopefully you can learn something new about our favourite publishing platform and discover some useful tools, services, or products related to WordPress.
February 1st to 8th 2015
Over at the Colorlib blog I took at look at their 3-in-1 employment theme WPJobus. This theme includes everything you need to build an online job board – although it can be used to create a website to publish your online resume, or a company profile website.
Sometimes feature rich themes are tricky to use but WPJobus does a good job of keeping things simple without missing any important features out. The appearance of the theme is really impressive too making this a useful resource for anyone building a job portal with WordPress.
My post series at Pagely continues with two more useful free plugins you might be interested in: NextScripts Social Network Auto Poster and Meta Slider. The latter plugin is a good free options for adding slideshows to WordPress websites. I like writing these short posts on plugins as it gives me a good excuse to try out lots of the best add-ons for WordPress.
I recently started writing for the massive WPMU DEV blog and this week had a post published featuring 20 of the best agency themes for WordPress. Yeah its a list post but I think I did a pretty good job of explaining the themes to help readers get a better sense on what’s on offer – I hope! Last week I reviewed the Envira Gallery plugin for WPMU DEV which is a really impressive tool if you can afford it.
If you want more themes, I wrote a list of over 15 drag and drop WordPress themes over at the aThemes blog. Again I think I added some value to readers with my theme descriptions, rather than just listing features. I’ve used a lot of these drag and drop plugins before so it helps when writing about themes that make use of them.
I also worked on a massive list of 30 WordPress themes that follow the flat design trend – there are some really nice templates covering a range of website styles here so make sure you check it out.
Finally, I did a piece on managed WordPress hosting for the Hosting Kingdom website to help readers decide if this type of hosting is web hosting is right for them.
I think that about covers the WordPress posts I wrote that were published last week. If you’d like to get the weekly list of posts like this, direct to your inbox each week, please enter your email address below to join the newsletter.
