Nice article about WordPress in my favourite web design and develpment magazine (issue 217 of .NET). Usual stuff but well written without either speeding or jabbering.
There’s a nice overview of Custom Menus, Multisite, Custom Post Formats, Custom Post types and Custom Taxonomies.

One thing I’d never heard of before was the new ability in WordPress 3.x to enable custom background images to any post. Just add the following to your functions.php file:
. Look up the codex for more. Aparently this allows admin users to change background image properties (as CSS) from within the appearance menu. http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/add_custom_background. Having not tried this – but I think its limited to a global preference per install – so of limited use to theme developers.
Anyway nice stuff Jeff Starr at .Net …
