Do you want to customize your blog? Really customize it? Four freshly installed themes give you more control than you ever dreamed of.
They all offer menus, custom layouts and/or colors, widgets, multi-columns, color schemes; and each has its own special tweaks – icons, sliders, fonts, mobile versions. The possibilities to make your blog unique will grow exponentially.
Some details on what they offer…
Do you have a lot of external links on your site, but you don’t have the time to review them all to make sure they haven’t broken? Activate the Broken Link Checker plugin.
This handy app lets you post and edit pages, moderate comments, work with categories and tags, and upload media straight from the camera.
The JoeMobi app generator lets you compile your WordPress blog into a downloadable app for your Android or Blackberry.
Upload files that are too big, and readers will get frustrated and simply cancel the download. Or, they’ll get the file but it will be cumbersome to work with and hard to navigate through. Here are some tips to make your blog posts a little lighter on their feet.
We’ve installed a slick new plugin across the blogs we host that provides a very clean interface for mobile phones and tablets. With it you get your choice of many custom icons — or you can create your own — and lots of flexibility with colors, backgrounds and menus.
We like this new guide at Edudemic, which covers all of the basics and a lot of the more advanced things you’ll need to know to effectively run your WordPress blog.
