CoSchedule: A Closer Look At WordPress Editorial Workflow Management

The best thing I ever did for my blogging career was to start using an editorial calendar.

Oasis Workflow Plugin Is A Powerful Editorial Workflow Manager For WordPress

Monetizing A WordPress Site With Memberships

There are many different ways to make money from a successful publishing venture, but the two most popular are advertising and subscriptions. Of these, advertising is by far the most popular.

White Labeling WordPress For Cohesive Branding And Improved User Experience

Most WordPress users don’t care about WordPress. The name of the content management system, the majority of its functionality, its community, and the underlying framework don’t matter one whit to them. They care deeply about publishing content, about making sales, about generating leads — WordPress is just the tool they use achieve those goals. The […]

WordPress 4.2 Beta Now Ready For Testing

Every four months, regular as (slightly creaky) clockwork, the WordPress developers produce a new release. The first release of the year traditionally lands some time in April, and this year, all being well, will be no different. But before WordPress 4.2 hits the servers next month, the developers need a bit of help ironing out […]
