Who and What

I’ve been working with WordPress for a number of years now. I don’t claim to be a WordPress guru, but I do think I’m fairly decent at compiling resources and distilling information.

My journey with WordPress has been longer and harder than I would have liked for a number of reasons, my hope is to provide you with a resource that allows you to avoid some of the pitfalls and rabbit trails I have found myself in/on.

As You Need It

This section contains content that is really helpful to know but not content one always needs to know. Depending on what you are building with WP, you may or may not have occasion to utilize this material – so learn it as you need it.

  • Tom Ewer’s How to Build a Landing Page (WPExplorer, 2014-2016)
    • Tom instructs us to create a template file called front-page.php. This is too specific imho, I prefer blank.php (very wide) or landing.php (specifically landing).
  • Jared Novack. What Is WordPress Lacking? A Template Language. Torque Mag, 2013.
    • Jared reviews Mustache, Smarty, and Twig as potential template languages for WP. He reviews several endeavors to integrate a template language currently in existence and goes on to share about their home grown (and now quite popular) plugin called Timber that utilizes Twig.

Big Picture
