Ryan Imel, Editor-in-Chief of WP Candy transformed what was once a tutorial site for the past years into a face-paced breaking WordPress news site. Ryan is a serial entrepreneur having created projects like COMMENTbits and others. On the show we review Ryan’s goals for the transformation and how he feels value is provided to the readership. Upon visiting WP Candy, users will find the latest and greatest news, WordCamp recaps, reviews, podcasts, interviews, podcasts, plugins, themes and of course tutorials as always. Among the interesting goodies tucked away in the site is the theme finder. We also discuss mechanics of getting a new site started including site structure, taxonomies and uses of tags and tag clouds.
We invite everyone to submit reviews and tips at WP Candy and help Ryan and his team continue to help us all stay up-to-date with WordPress news.
