To help get you in the mood, here are some of the tips for […]

WordPress Widgets: The Next Generation of WordPress Plugins

In many respects I think of WordPress Widgets as the WordPress Plugins: The Next Generation. WordPress Plugins which add or change elements in a WordPress Theme can be a challenge to install and configure due to the overwhelming code found within a WordPress Theme. WordPress Widgets overcome the fear as there is no interaction directly […]

2007 Year of the Widget

Newsweek saluted 2007 as the Year of the Widget (print version): …thanks to widgets, taking multiple steps to track down headlines in one place and then check your e-mail in another may seem woefully outdated this time next year. These mini-applications—also called “gadgets”—are simple bits of code, easily dragged onto a desktop or pasted into […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Most Popular Articles on Lorelle on WordPress

As you’ve looked back with me over the past year’s worth of over 800 articles, can you possibly guess which article was consistently number one on my blog? Was it an article about how to design WordPress Themes? How to improve your blogging? How to make lots of money with your blogging? Nope. Was it […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Designing WordPress Themes for the Public

An article I wrote during the past year that got a lot of attention, and criticism, was “WordPress Theme Designers: Slapping You Upside the Head”. It was a rant, but also a guide to help those who design WordPress Themes for public release, and to WordPress.com and those who choose and prepare WordPress Themes for […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Designing WordPress Themes

WordPress Theme design is fairly unique in web design techniques as a WordPress Theme isn’t just about the design of the website, it is about web design based upon generated and controllable content. Programming code helps to create each page on a WordPress blog, influencing the look and feel of every element of a WordPress […]

One Year Anniversary Review: WordPress Tips, Tricks and Techniques

This is a blog about WordPress and I’ve written a lot about how to use WordPress from every angle. Part of the challenge of writing about WordPress over the past year has been the issue of writing about WordPress, the full version program where you can do just about anything you want, and writing about […]

One Year Anniversary Review: What are Feeds?

As I review this past year’s worth of articles I’ve written, I find that two topics were probably the most life changing for me and many other bloggers: social bookmarking and feeds. In Don’t You Know What a Feed Is Yet? Get To Know Your Feeds!”, I explain what feeds are: Feeds are an awesome […]

One Year Anniversary Review: The Power of the Link

<a href=”https://lorelle.wordpress.com/&#8221; title=”Lorelle on WordPress” rel=”tag bookmark”>Lorelle on WordPress</a> Nestled inside of that simple HTML link is the power that makes the web the web. Like the spokes of a spider web, links connect each part and piece with another part and piece, making the part critical to the whole. You followed a link to […]

One Year Anniversary Review: In the Beginning WordPress Begot WordPressMU Begot WordPress.com

The dream was “how to make WordPress available to everyone, no matter what level of experience or expertise they had”. Individual WordPress blogs are great, but the popularity and ease of blogging got the corporate world interested in providing blogs for their employees as a way to communicate with the outside world on what they […]

One Year Anniversary Review: WordPress Plugins

I would love to be one of those sites which does nothing but review WordPress Themes and WordPress Plugins. I love them both, especially WordPress Plugins. And I’ll admit it publicly: I’m a WordPress Plugin addict! WordPress Plugins are tools, utilities, and add-ons that extend your capabilities on WordPress. They come in so many colors, […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Helping WordPress.com Users

WordPress has won very high marks and reviews for awesome customer service and documentation in the past two years. It was only natural when things got going for WordPress.com bloggers to provide similar top quality help and support. It took a while to create a WordPress.com Support Forum. Before it arrived, I pitched in with […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Blogging Tools Analysis and Reviews

I’ll admit it right up front. I’m prejudice. Totally. Completely. When it comes to blogging tools, I think it’s pretty easy to detect my bias. Yes, I choose WordPress. In case you couldn’t tell. 😉 That didn’t stop me from blogging about what other people had to say about WordPress and other blogging tools over […]

How to Avoid the New WordPress.com Interface

For the past three to four years, WordPress.com users have been “experimenting” with the what is known as the “new” WordPress.com interface. A drag-and-drop-meets-wysiwymg interface (What You See is What You MIGHT Get), it is designed to make interaction with WordPress easier. I’m still waiting. What it continues to do is make my students and […]
