Buzzfeed-esque headline aside, WordPress has more or less reached 25% market share, but just how many of the world's top sites actually rely on it to deliver their content? We did some digging into the details and the results were surprisingly shocking.
<p>WordPress has blown past its competition in the CMS space in the past five years, and most readers will be familiar with the statistic that it now powers nearly a quarter of the modern web.<br /> The platform is unlikely to plateau at the 25% mark either. WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg is on record as saying the next goal is 50%+ market share and, while that may be a stretch goal, it certainly can’t be ruled out as a potentially achievabl...

This week marks 10 years since our CEO, James Farmer, started Edublogs and became one of the earliest WordPress entrepreneurs. Ten years, five offices, six products and lots of #wpdrama later… This is his story – warts and all.
<p>This week marks 10 years since I started Edublogs and became one of the earliest WordPress entrepreneurs. Ten years, five offices, six products and about a bazillion WP dramas later… This is my story.<br /> I think it’s fair to say that I’ve got issues. Issues with authority, popularity, inclusivity, regular-ways-of-doing-business, independence and, erm, polite society.</p> <p>Along with unfairness, corruption, bullying and the stinking mess t...

If you’re serious about getting that eye-catching look from your site that begs visitors to do a double-take (and ideally scroll down or click on links), you shouldn't be afraid to invest a bit of money in a great responsive theme. Yeah, our Upfront themes are responsive, but it doesn't mean we can't appreciate other themes! Tom Ewer rounds up his favorites for this post.
<p>When it comes to WordPress design, the possibilities really are endless, and some of the themes you can get nowadays are nothing short of spectacular.<br /> Now that we’re living in a culture where almost everybody browses the web from a mobile device, having a site that looks just “okay” on a smartphone or a tablet doesn’t cut it. Responsive design is in, and you should be taking advantage of it (if you’re not already).</p> <ul class="bo...

Tired of the typical “X Tips for Speeding Up WordPress” posts? In this definitive guide, developer Daniel Pataki goes through the 22 general and development-related improvements he applied to a recent website rebuild that reduced load time from 26 seconds down to just 800ms.
<p>A few years ago, I played a big part in building a client website that’s still successful enough today but has become frustratingly slow. The database is full of clutter and there are some pages that take as long as 26 seconds to load due to the number of images and other requests it makes to the server.<br /> We decided it was high time to do something about this and recently rebuilt the site, applying tried and tested speed techniques, which...

Why spend time carrying out routine and often boring admin tasks for WordPress like updating plugins, managing users, and even setting up Multisite when you don't have to? (You know you don't have to, right?) WP-CLI is a brilliant command line tool that isn't just for developers. Here's how to use it to make your life easier.
<p>If there’s one thing WordPress developers hate, it’s plodding through unnecessary manual grunt work that could just as easily be automated.<br /> And if there’s one thing developers love, it’s using the power of the command line to blast through tasks with just a few keystrokes without disturbing the overall flow.</p> <p>WordPress hasn’t exactly been blessed with a huge range of power tools for developers over the years, but that situation is ...
