5 Reasons Your Web Guy Doesn’t Want You to Learn Wordpress - Business 2 Community

5 Reasons Your Web Guy Doesn’t Want You to Learn Wordpress - Business 2 Community | WordPress Web Development Freelance | Scoop.it
Keith Lockhart's insight:

Good to have that fan-boy spirit.  You can get a blog up and running quickly, but in my mind WP is less than intuitive under  the hood.  People can easily get headaches looking at things like the loop and hooks.  Bottom line - you get what you pay for.  Parlez-vous PHP, mysql and javascript?  You'll need it.

How to Choose Trustworthy WordPress Themes & Plugins

How to Choose Trustworthy WordPress Themes & Plugins | WordPress Web Development Freelance | Scoop.it
How can you safeguard against poorly developed themes and plugins? There are a few telltale signs. Here are some ways you can identify trustworthy themes and plugins so you can be rest assured the code is of good quality and, more importantly, safe.
Keith Lockhart's insight:

This is a good summary.  Note that WordPress.org has had it's share of problems.  Sometimes bad things are here.  The ratingngs are inconsistent and the search function sucks. (try a search for "twitter" in plug-ins.) WP Plugins A-Z sums it up well - "it is difficult to sort the junk from the gems".

Spring insect threat across Prairies seen as normal -

Spring insect threat across Prairies seen as normal - | WordPress Web Development Freelance | Scoop.it
CNS Canada – Cool temperatures and overall wet conditions should make it tough for most insects and other pests to get an early toehold on Prairie crops, according to three insect specialists across Western Canada. Wheat midge, cabbage seedpod weevils, flea beetles and grasshoppers are some of the early exceptions, however, as they have been … ∞
Keith Lockhart's insight:

The only insect adversely affected would be grasshoppers, which prefer hot, dry periods. Also they are cyclical insects, typically with a 5-7 year rhythm. Don't count on a nasty winter cutting down your regular pests, they haven't thrived this long by being biological wimps.
