Back in March I wrote an article for the WordPress section of Smashing Magazine. Please check it out if you’re interested in the history of the Toolbar, how it works and how you can interact with it.
As one of the developers here on the CUNY Academic Commons, I have the opportunity to see quite a bit of what WordPress has to offer. I routinely work with themes, plugins and the core code that ties everything together. I’ve developed my own themes for personal use, and I’ve created plugins that are used by many others. It is this experience, and my affiliation with both CUNY and the Commons, that led Matt Gold to ask me if I’d be willing to share my knowledge and experience with the members of the Digital Fellows group.
