WordPress School to Launch in February

WordPress School will offer free online courses on all things WordPress. WP School was started with the goal of bringing WordPress education to the masses through online course and education.

Pooria Asteraky (Creator) Classifies WP School as a (MOOC) or Massive Open Online Course, he’s using Indiegogo to raise the funds to make the dream a reality.

WP School is set to launch on the 14th february 2014, I think it’s a great idea and Pooria has my full support.

WordPress 3.6 “Oscar” is released

WordPress 3.6 “Oscar” has been released, and theres a whole host of great features you’ll receive when you update.

As is tradition, theres a lovely blog-centric new WordPress theme for us to play with, the Twenty Thirteen WordPress theme has lovely typography and a nice colourful header, inspired by minimalism and the current in vogue flat design aesthetic.

The autosave and revision system has been vastly improved and is much more intuitive.

I have successfully updated a handful of my WordPress websites and have had no problems as of yet.
