This is Malcolm Peralty here from PressTitan and this is The WP Minute, Episode 149
The first thing I need to point out today is the latest WPWeekly podcast. It might seem strange to promote another podcast within a podcast, but in the three hundred and forty-fifth episode of WPWeekly, they talk about the relationship between corporate cash and open source. IT is a really fun discussion, started thanks to Morten Rand-Hendriksen, that gives opinions on how companies can move WordPress in the direction they want just by spending money to hire developers to contribute to core. It is definitely worth a listen.
Over on WPBeginner, they have a post that covers tools that can help you manage multiple WordPress sites in one dashboard. I’ve used quite a few of these tools and have found them to be very helpful. Interestingly enough, they don’t cover the one I’ve been using the most lately: Blogvault nor do they mention that ManageWP is now owned by Godaddy. If you have an opinion on Godaddy, maybe you want to use ManageWP or avoid it based on that. Still a really good article for those that manage more than one WordPress powered site.
Lastly, we have Mythic, an advanced starter theme from Justin Tadlock. He talks about the theme in a blog post on his personal site and links to Theme Hybrid, his theme company where you can learn more about the theme. It pushes the envelope of theme development and is really for more intermediate and above PHP developers to use as a basis to create their own themes with modern code. To get it, you’ll need to subscribe to Theme Hybrid’s premium membership plan at nearly sixty dollars per year, though you do get all of their other themes as well.
That’s it for today’s WP Minute, thank you all for watching.
