I've been checking out WordPress themes as starting points for my web design and development projects. I've written about why I want to work with WordPress and with Perch CMS and, as part of that, I need to be able to offer a WordPress theme customisation service for projects that fit my requirements for WordPress.

Yesterday I was working on a WordPress site and a question came up about removing (or hiding) top level items from the Admin Menu (for all users). This is what I've used in other projects.

I’ve been doing more work with WordPress for another local web design company recently and, as a result, I’ve been browsing WordPress themes and marketplaces more often.
Anyway, one of the themes that I’ve seen is the Avada theme, from Theme Fusion, as sold on Theme Forest here [affiliate link]. I was amazed by the amount of layout and functionality options that the theme provides….. and it looks bloody good! No surprises that this is apparently the top selling theme on Theme Forest.

I’ve developed and managed a few WordPress websites for myself (and for clients) and recently I’ve been using the Jetpack plug-in. It’s actually a collection of plug-ins that provides additional functionality for your WordPress blog/website. I like it!
Jetpack supercharges your self‑hosted WordPress site with the awesome cloud power of WordPress.com.
Jetpack is made by Automattic, the company behind WordPress, and was orginally only available if your site was hosted on WordPress.com. Now, it’s available for self-hosted sites as well. So, what does it provide? Here are some of the options in the Jetpack package.

I like to run a few personal websites and really enjoy writing articles for these. The articles are not about web-related technical stuff but describe things I get up to in my spare time. I guess this is a bit of a ‘diversion’ for me and one way to get away from my 9-to-5 job as a freelance web developer/designer.
One of these websites is Clive Goes Cycling …

I’ve been using some WordPress themes from StudioPress in recent months and have been pretty impressed – so I thought I would highlight some of the reasons why in this short post.
Info: I have used the Genesis theme with various child themes on several projects.

One thing that I have been pondering recently is whether to use web templates or (WordPress) themes more regularly in web design projects.

I have run this blog for a few years now with Textpattern as the content management system. I’m pretty happy with it but I am wondering if I might be better off changing to Wordpress.

I have been using Textpattern as blog software and as a website content management system (CMS) for a few years now but my colleague (who shall remain nameless) is a bit of a WordPress fan. We each argued the case for our favourite but both systems seemed to have advantages and disadvantages depending on the website scenario. In actual fact, neither of us has used the other software ‘in anger’ so-to-speak. Until now that is.

I was perusing my Flickr website inspiration photoset and I came across a screenshot of a blog theme that I saved. Sometimes you have to hold your hands up and say 'Wow! That's a great design'.
