Devlounge has a series on customizing WordPress that has some interesting tips and tricks that they used to customize their WordPress blog.
- Customizing WordPress: Advanced

Be warned that Devlounge uses the WordPress pages feature to break posts up into multiple pages. Why? Who knows, but they implement it poorly with tiny links at the bottom of the posts which indicate that this is page one of more than one page in the artcile. You have to click through the pages to get the full story, or click the “print article” link to see the whole thing. Look closely so you don’t overlook the page links.
