Last night’s meeting went pretty well I thought. And my talk “Just how far can you push Twenty Eleven without code” was well received. I said I would publish links to the plugins and resources I mentioned , so here goes:
- The WordPress.com showcase page for Twenty Eleven — http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/twentyeleven/
- Spectacu.la Page Widget — http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/spectacula-page-widget/
- Custom Sidebars — http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-sidebars/ (I loved how excited some people got about this one!)
- WordPress.com Custom CSS — http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/safecss/
- Twenty Eleven Theme Extensions — http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/twenty-eleven-theme-extensions/
- Upper Menu for Twenty Eleven — http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/upper-menu-for-twenty-eleven/
Another plugin that a few people expressed an interest in was CMS Tree Page View
We also mentioned StudioPress themes — http://www.studiopress.com/ which I wholeheartedly recommend (affiliate link).
Finally, someone asked about being able to remove the original full size image after WordPress has resized it to create the thumbnail and intermediate sizes. I thought I’d seen a plugin that did this, but couldn’t find it. I did, however find this snippet of code in answer to a question on WordPress Stack Exchange. That code could be turned into a plugin, but I would add a little extra code around it, including a check that the original size is actually bigger than your designated largest size.
If I forgot to mention something else we talked about, please leave a comment.
If you came to the meeting last night, let me know what you thought.
