WordPress Themeing Cheat Sheet

WP Theme Cheat Sheet

WpCandy has released an awesome PDF which contains helpful information related to developing themes for WordPress. The cheat sheet includes the following:

  • Basic Template Files
  • PHP Snippets for the Header
  • PHP Snippets for the Templates
  • And Extra Stuff for WordPress

The resource has been translated into Spanish and Romanian in case English is not your native language. At any rate, click here to view the PDF within your browser. Alternatively, you can right-click and save the file to your desktop.

Considering Matt Mullenweg and company are considering a WP-Theme Marketplace where unique theme designers can be paid for their designs, it might be a good time to pump up that WP theme knowledge.

Smashing Magazine On RSS

Smashing Magazine Logo

Smashing Magazine has put together an interesting article that describes what RSS is and why it’s a good idea to have an RSS icon on your site. It’s interesting to note that not long ago, RSS icons were merely graphics with XML on them, which was wrong. XML is the markup language, not the syndication itself. SM also goes into detail regarding the different RSS icons that exist and the different ways to tell your visitors that you have an RSS subscription feed without always having to use the STANDARD icon.  You can check out the article here.

By the way, I thought it was hilarious to see a page that contains the world’s LARGEST RSS icon on the planet. I am REALLY tempted to place it on this page to see what sort of reactions I get!

This article makes me think that perhaps my RSS button is not clearly defined enough. What do you think?
