How to Log In To Your WordPress Site

Logging in to WordPress is pretty fundamental to the whole editing experience. But I’ve always found it a little confusing and complicated, if I’m honest.

Do the WordPress Wiggle

WordCamp Denver was last weekend. And it was a really great event which I would recommend that everyone try to get to in future years.

So below are our succinct notes on WordCamp Boston 2013, starting with the “second keynote” by WordPress 3.7 lead developer Andrew Nacin.
