WordPress offers five default roles, which control what users can and can't do on a website, and you're pretty much stuck with them. Luckily, there’s an easy fix if you want to customize the role names. In today's post we show you how.
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.
The countdown to Christmas has begun! As stores crank up the Christmas carols and homes are decorated with beautiful Christmas trees covered in lights, baubles and tinsel, there’s no reason why you can’t deck out your website with boughs of holly.
To help you get into the Christmas spirit, I’ve put together a fun list of free Christmas plugins – all tried and tested with the upcoming version of WordPress 4.1 and the new default Twenty Fifteen theme. All of these plugins are available in the WordPress Plugin Repository.

One of the great things about WordPress as an open source project is that the core code is regularly updated with improvements and security patches.
Whenever there’s a major release available, a notification will display at the top of your admin area, letting you know your version is out-of-date and you need to update the core code.
For many people, this nag can be annoying. And if you developer websites for clients, you may want to hide it. After all, who wants to let their clients know their software is old?
In today’s Weekend WordPress Project, I’ll show you how to easily hide the update notifications.
Styling external links is common practice for many sites containing references, such as Wikipedia.
For users, it’s a simple visual cue indicating that if you click a particular link you will be taken to another site.
In today’s Weekend WordPress Project I’ll show you how to style all external links on your site.
How Wikipedia Styles Links
In case you’ve forgotten how Wikipedia styles its links, here’s an example from the WordPress page:
Have you ever visited a site and wondered what WordPress theme it’s using?
You could easily take a peek at the source code or look at the theme’s stylesheet, but not everyone knows how to do that.
In today’s Weekend WordPress Project, I’ll show you the quickest way to find out a site’s theme.
What WordPress Theme Is That?
What WordPress Theme is That? is a site where you can simply enter an URL and it will tell you the name of the theme a site is using.
It will also tell you which plugins the site is using, too.
Multisite is a fantastic feature of WordPress that allows you to easily create a network of websites and crown yourself “Super Admin.”
But once you’ve activated Multisite for your WordPress install and set it up, what next?
In this post we’ll look at the best plugins – all created by WPMU DEV – to help you manage your network. Each of the plugins below will extend the functionality of a basic Multisite install, adding features such as domain mapping, cloning, SEO, and analytics.
