Unfortunately, WordPress’s wp_nav_menu function does not output the classes Bootstrap is looking for, and we need to add more markup than is possible via the options for wp_nav_menu. This is a perfect time to use a custom Nav Walker Class . (more…)
We love using WordPress to build and maintain websites with a lot of posts and pages. However, the stock WordPress interface leaves a lot to be desired when you need to create or manage a lot of content.
Thankfully, there’s a bunch of awesome free plugins that you can add to your WordPress installation that will make managing a large WordPress site a breeze. We’ve compiled a list our favorites here. These plugins will give you shortcuts for everything, from generating content quickly to zooming around the admin interface.
Once you’ve tested out these free plugins, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. (more…)

Its functional, but if you’re building any kind of customer facing site, you’ve really got to change the “Register For This Site” text to something a bit friendlier. Thankfully its an easy change to make, via the functions.php file in your theme.
