Week in Review
This week’s main post was the second part of the WordPress Thesis Theme Customization, which focused on plugins to enhance the functionality of my theme. With exception to Thesis Openhook, the plugins listed work for any theme.
Preview for the week of 6 July 2009
Next week, in continuation of the WordPress Thesis Theme Customization series, I will cover the actual coding in the Thesis OpenHook, custom functions and custom styling section that create the menu, Tweetmeme, layout and more on Kikolani.
