  • JetPack 2.0: The new version of the popular WordPress.com plugin offers many new features, but two that really stand out for me: automate sharing posts to various social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Tumblr and Photon, which manages image resizing and caching on WordPress.com’s servers (determines what image to display for a device). JetPack provides a range of features including contact forms, stats, WP.me URL shortener, spell, style and grammar checker, and more.

  • How to Add Excerpts to Your WordPress Pages: Though WordPress doesn't provide excerpts for Pages, it's easy to add excerpt functionality with functions.php or via a plugin.
  • WP-Invoice: A Direct Billing and Invoice Solution for WordPress: If you're looking for an invoicing solution, here's one to check out.
  • Using Keyboard Shortcuts in WordPress: In the Visual Editor, select the question mark icon, and you'll see a set of shortcuts you can use for your posts. This post also lists shortcuts for comment management, Windows Live Writer, and links to browser shortcut resources.
  • WordPress.com is Proud to Help Power Red Cross Relief Efforts: American Red Cross’s Disaster Online Newsroom is using WordPress for their hub for photos, videos, and critical information about shelters, emergency response equipment, and how to donate or help.
