An ace from Darren Hoyt: “Premium WordPress Themes and Other Concerns” … not just a truly fine over-view of “themes for $$$” but a thoughtful consideration of themes design.
From WordPressGarage: ZDNet says WordPress not clunky, but also not CMS:
“what struck me the most about this article was the Update at the end, where he says that he was corrected by Dennis Howlett, who pointed out that WordPress isn’t actually a CMS. This is something that I really don’t get. WordPress manages content, does it not? Then why isn’t it a CMS?”
HackWordPress.com writes: “There are a few [plugins], however, that every WordPress blog should be using in some form. Here is my list of the top plugins all WordPress blogs should be using, in no particular order”
A fascinating plugin utility: PlugInstaller, “a WordPress plugin-management plugin that eliminates the need to download a plugin archive, upload it to your FTP server and unpack it manually”.
Also from Henning Roland Schaefer, his Plugin Reviews. He writes, “On this page, I am reviewing some of the most useful plugins for wordpress. If you have found a plugin you find especially useful, or if you are a plugin author who wants to “spread the word” about her new plugin, you are welcome to suggest plugins to be reviewed here.”
