Pearsonified’s Chris Pearson takes us inside his redesign of the new look for the Blog Herald, pushing WordPress to the max.
Yesterday marked the long-awaited launch of the new Blog Herald. Along with a new set of clothes, the Herald received a complete re-write of the WordPress back end that controls the content presentation. If you can’t dig the spartan design, then maybe the geek in you can dig on how I extended WordPress to precisely control things like post display, WordPress pages, and even feed lists. Without further ado, let’s take a little tour of the new Blog Herald!
With the use of post queries and conditional tags, Pearson was able to create excellent featured posts and took full advantage of WordPress custom fields. If you want to turn WordPress into an ezine, news, business, or CMS styled blog, then you need his tips and techniques.
