Do you work with WordPress? (If not, you know you should, but that’s besides the point.) If you work with WordPress in any capacity, you should keep WP Engineer in your regular reading, whether that is email subscription or RSS reader.
I am a firm believer that if you are a blogger, especially on a relatively small scale (like a one-man show), you need to be able to fully manage your site. In WordPress-speak, this means being able to implement simple customizations to fit your needs.
WordPress has a very powerful and customizable framework, much of which goes unnoticed by the general public. Because WordPress chooses to only provide options and settings where they are absolutely necessary, many non-coding types find themselves using loads of plugins to fit their custom needs.
The debate over “to plugin or not plugin” is an every continuing one. And at the end of the day, I think there is a time and a place for plugins. But I see a lot of users implement plugins where a very simple customization would do the job more efficiently. Why? Because the site owner doesn’t have the knowledge of implementing simple code snippets to solve small problems.
That’s where WP Engineer comes in.
