WordCamp Spain

Just a quick note to say that I’m heading to Barcelona today for WordCamp Spain on Saturday! 🙂 It’s gonna be awesome and I will post my slides and experiences here afterwards. I’ll be presenting on WooTumblog and Post Formats, as well as the Express for WordPress iPhone app.  Check out more details here: http://wordcamp.es/ (you might wanna do it through Google Translate for english).

WooTumblog WordPress Plugin

For those who follow WooThemes, you will no doubt have seen our Tumblog Themes such as Cinch and Crisp, and will know that they give you similar functionality to a tumblr style blog from within WordPress. So if you didn’t buy one of our tumblog themes you wouldn’t be able to have that functionality, but now you can for FREE! In addition to this, you can buy the Express for WordPress iPhone app and publish content to your Tumblog enabled WordPress blog right from your iPhone!! See the official announcement page here: http://www.woothemes.com/2010/10/tumbling-along/

Twenty Ten Custom Taxonomy Template

I’ve been doing some modifications to the default WordPress Twenty Ten theme and I needed a custom taxonomy page template for my taxonomy archives – taxonomy.php – to take advantage of the WordPress template hierarchy. So I made a generic one for the Twenty Ten theme seeing as it doesn’t come with one.  So now your custom taxonomy archive pages don’t have to say “Blog Archives”, instead with this it will output the Taxonomy as well as the Term, similar to the Category archive page. Simply download the file below, extract it, and put taxonomy.php in the root of your Twenty Ten theme!

Custom Post Types Interview

I recently got interviewed by Dan Milward for GetShopped.org as part of their 12 Awesome Examples of Custom Post Types article, in particular the innovative ways we’ve implemented them at WooThemes. I gave him the low down on what we did with Estate and the Tumblog themes.  There’s some really interesting examples in the article, check it out.  Thanks Dan!

Bundle Hunt

I recently purchased the treasure from Bundle Hunt and found the contents to be pretty rad. I’m particulary looking forward to getting to grips with Billings (a invoicing, project management, time tracking app for mac/iPhone), Subernova (online project management tool), and reading the Smashing Magazine ebook on Mastering Photoshop. The Bundle Hunt concept seems similar to the whole MacHeist vibe, and includes some other useful design stuff like icons and WordPress themes. Continue reading “Bundle Hunt”
