  1. Why you shouldn't see what you get

    I’ve come across a few articles recently that explain how to make the WordPress WYSIWYG editor look like the design of your actual site. Whilst I understand the principle behind this I actually think it’s a bad idea.

  2. How to make WordPress post titles link to another site

    The web is all about sharing and we all like to share all the new and exciting things we discover every day. It’s not unusual for bloggers to write articles linking to their findings. A recent trend is to make the title of these posts link directly to whatever it is you might be linking to ala Tumblr.

  3. WordPress custom includes

    A brief guide to a handy little WordPress trick I recently discovered. It may be simple but it really is worth knowing about.

  8. WordPress 3.0 released

    This one really did sneak up on me. I was aware that Wordpress 3.0 was in the works and was also available in public beta but did not expect the final release to be ready when I logged in today.

  9. Rydz Design: The WordPress stuff part 1

    I said a while ago that I would write about the Wordpress development that went into the making of this site. It then crossed my mind that it may be a bit too much for one article, forcing me to summarise a lot and skip over the details, so I’m going to break it down into a few articles.

  10. Why I love WordPress

    It will come as a surprise to absolutely no one that this site is powered entirely by Wordpress. Although primarily a blogging tool, over the years many CMS type features have been added. And lets face it, isn’t a blogging tool a CMS, as it allows you to manage content?
