How to Update WordPress Plugins [VIDEO]

We created a YouTube page where we’ll be hosting video tutorials on doing various different things — both beginner and advanced — in WordPress. In our first video, we walk you through keeping your WordPress installation up-to-date with plugin updates. Watch below or head over to our YouTube page so you can subscribe to updates. We recommend taking a look at the WordPress Codex article on Updating WordPress in addition to watching this video, as it goes into much more depth and provides some information on how to create a backup of your database before performing any updates to your site.

WordPress Theme Development 101 – Test Run

WordCamp SLC is in one week, and I am speaking.  In order to prepare myself, I have been talking to myself (which I refer to as “preparing my presentation”) and decided that filming myself might also be helpful.  For the sake of anyone interested in the subject matter, people who might not go to WordCamp Salt Lake City, who don’t want to wait until the official session videos are uploaded, or who simply want to heckle in the comments, I’ve provided this video of a practice run of my presentation.  Enjoy.  You can also find the full presentation slides here.

Bean Hollow is a rocky beach on the California coast near Pescadero.  It’s an awesome place for climbing on rocks and checking out tidepools that isn’t overrun with people.  We didn’t post a new wallpaper last month, because we were too busy going to beaches like this along Highway 1, so we thought we would share a tiny bit of that with this grungy wallpaper for your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet.  As always, this wallpaper is available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial-ShareAlike license in the following resolutions:
