I don’t know about you, but I am always on the lookout for ways to customize WordPress, either with a cool plugin or just a customized template. Pixelita Designs uses premade themes only on rare occasions; we prefer to “roll our own,” since we feel that in most cases, this gives the client the best experience, bang for his/her buck.
So here, in no particular order, are ten really great resources for code and techniques that will make your next WordPress project shine.
- WP Snippets
- Tips and Tricks HQ
- WP Recipes
- WP Engineer
- WP Hardcore
- WP Snipp
- WP Code
- WP Function Me (specifically for code that goes into your WordPress
- WordPress Codex (the richest resource of all, with examples given at nearly every turn)
Joni Mueller has been designing web sites for hire since 2003, when she first blew up her web host’s server by insisting on running Greymatter. Since then, Joni has designed for Blogger and Movable Type, TextPattern, WordPress and CMS Made Simple. She lives with her cat and shoe collection in a bucolic old section of Houston called Idylwood. For some strange reason, Joni likes to refer to herself in the third person. When she’s not working on web design, she’s ordering lawyers around. And blogging about it. Or both.
