WordPress Weekly Recap, March 23

Hey there! I'm currently working on a CLI tool to deploy WordPress apps to DigitalOcean. Check it out! It's free and open source.

It’s Friday and it’s time for a WordPress Weekly recap! WordPress.com rolled out four new themes this week, one of which is San Kloud, which is exciting news for Theme.fm, who by the way, launched their new theme store earlier this week as well.

Emil Uzelac launched a free theme called Responsive. You don’t see much CMS-type themes in the repository, so this is exciting, and it’s responsive too, duh! :) Noumaan published a list of themes and plugins based on Twitter’s Bootstrap toolkit. WordPress was rejected from GSoC :(

Vladimir Prelovac shared his experience on how he made $80,000 from a single WordPress plugin, quite a success story. Ryan Imel reported the launch of a certain “WP App Store” by Brad Touesnard. And last, but definitely not least, Sucuri published a great article on understanding the true vulnerability of WordPress.

Tweet of the week:


That’s about it! Let me know if I’ve missed anything important this week, or perhaps something exciting just worth linking to — an article, or a picture, maybe some crazy WordPress video. You might also have noticed some minor UI refreshments on my blog (do you like them?), unless you’re reading it via RSS, in which case, thank you! If you’re not, you can subscribe here. Hope you all have a great weekend!

    • Hey Rilwis! Sweet! I’m an ack user (now) so I’d rather ack 'function function_name' and find its definition. I like the recommendations list on the left, although I don’t understand why when viewing get_template_part it’s recommending things like register_post_type and register_taxonomy and not showing really relevant functions like locate_template, get_header and so on :)

      Anyway, good job!
