44 Websites to Help You Improve Your Knowledge of WordPress

Posted in Showcase, WordPress • Posted on 18 Comments

We recently did a round-up of some of the leading design blogs that you need to follow in order to stay up to date with the latest trends in the design world. In this article we take a look at some blogs and websites that cover WordPress.

Most, if not all, design blogs have WordPress-related articles. However, these blogs deal specifically (and, in most cases, ONLY) with WordPress. Also, not all of the websites below are ‘blogs’ – some of them are feed aggregators, some are design showcases and wpMail.me is an email newsletter. However, they are all related to WordPress.

    Been all there at some point. Every site has a different set of tips and/or tools that could be used. However, recently I more and more tend to go directly to Trunk for more advanced features I’ve been working on in my recent coding. Great resources nevertheless:) Also Hook Database is worth mentioning, maybe not a direct source of learning, but definitely great source while developing (and learning in the process): http://adambrown.info/p/wp_hooks

    44? That’s an odd number. In any case, I should find at least one of these to be very handy. Thanks!

    Hi Sufyam,

    This is a list of great WordPress sites indeed.

    I would like you also to know that I have a WordPres site at the link in my signature above. Although not as large as some others on the list, I hope my articles are just as helpful to some people.
