Do you want to be able to track your WordPress users as they subscribe and unsubscribe from your MailChimp lists?
Of course you do, but your MailChimp plugin is probably no help beyond generating that subscribe form. What you need is MailChimp webhooks.
In this article, I’ll show you how to build a simple plugin to update your WordPress site with all your MailChimp list activity.
Sometimes it just easier to work with a theme that has loads of custom options for making a website look exactly how you want it, especially if you have clients who aren’t tech-savvy.
It’s just as important to have many styling options as it is to have the option of viewing your site from any device. That’s where these themes come in.
The themes below have tons of theme customizations (sometimes even hundreds!), and they are fully responsive, too. You won’t have to worry about messy looking settings pages either. If these themes had artificial intelligence, they wouldn’t even know the meaning of “messy.”

You definitely won’t be using the config file on a day-to-day basis but I’m betting that almost every WordPress install could benefit from adding a couple of things to this file. A well thought out config file can not only make a website faster and more secure; it can add features like more frequent trash emptying, disabling features such as revisions and offer advanced debugging capabilities.
In this article I’ll tell you all about the defaults that ship with your config file and how you can tweak it to make your website more suited to your needs.
In October we committed to contributing 2.5 full-time, dedicated support people to the WordPress Support Forums.
This was in response to WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg’s proposal that companies directly involved in WordPress should give back Five for the Future.
So we put a call out for friendly new people to join our support team, but unlike our regular crew these new people would hang out in the WordPress.org Support Forums all day, 40 hours minimum per week, helping folks out with anything and everything.
After initially trialling 12 people over a few weeks of intense training, we’re pleased to announce our WordPress Support Forums team.
This week’s round-up of WordPress news, views and reviews summarized in our daily email newsletter, The WhiP.
