Well, I gotta say, when I first launched Easy WP Guide back in May 2011, I never thought I’d see the downloads tick over to 100,000! A big thanks to those folks who have supported & shared the site with your colleagues, friends & clients. Also, a big thanks to those that have donated some coinage. One of the big costs with the site is the hosting, due to the traffic that goes through it. Last, but never least, thanks to everyone who’s downloaded a copy (or two) of the guide. It’s fantastic getting emails from people telling me how much they love the guide and how useful it’s been.
WordPress version 3.9, named “Smith” in honor of jazz organist Jimmy Smith, is now available for download from the WordPress website or by clicking that big ol’ update button within your WordPress Dashboard. You’ll find there’s a number of great updates in this latest version.
I’ve got some fantastic news! The Easy WP Guide is now available in Spanish!
Huge thanks must go out to one of our lovely readers out there, Ana Ayelén Martínez, from Caribdis Web Design in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I received an email from Ana recently thanking me for my work on the Easy WP Guide, which is great in itself as I always love hearing from people who find my guide useful. Ana works with a lot of clients that use WordPress and for much the same reason that I originally wrote the guide, Ana wanted to give something back to the WordPress community by translating the Easy WP Guide into her native Spanish.
It’s finally here! A completely revised Easy WP Guide! Check out the WordPress 3.8 goodness, with all new screenshots showcasing the refreshed User Interface that was released with this latest version of the world’s most popular content management system.
It’s live! WordPress 3.8, named “Parker” in honor of Charlie Parker, bebop innovator, is now available for download from the WordPress website or by clicking that big ol’ update button within your WordPress Dashboard.
Once installed, you’ll see the gorgeous, redesigned interface. The clean, fresh new look is modern and easy on the eyes. I’m sure you’ll love the new look, just as much as I do! It uses the Open Sans typeface which provides simple, friendly text that is optimized for print, web, and mobile interfaces, and has excellent legibility characteristics.
