FreelanceFolder has brought together this great collection of good resources when you want more WordPress:

WordPress has become one of, if not THE, most popular open source blogging and content management systems around. With over 25 million websites and blogs powered by this award-winning web software and a continuously expanding community of developers, designers and contributors, freelancers who have the skills and knowledge to create WordPress websites are in high demand. Over 90% of my own freelance business involves the use of WordPress somehow, and I have found a niche for providing clients with quality, affordable, custom WordPress websites that has grown my business at a rapid pace.

In this post, I am sharing 13 sites (in no particular order) I find myself visiting often for tips, tricks and tutorials that will enhance and expand your WordPress knowledge and abilities. Some of them you may already know and others you may not. Regardless, these are my own personal haunts when it comes to getting more out of WordPress.

WordPress.org

This one is obvious, and anyone who is using WordPress has visited this site at least once. The home of the software provides everything you could possibly need for its use, including a support forum for everything from plug-ins to templates and more. Of course, the Codex is the mother lode of info for creating custom WordPress websites.

Digging Into WordPress

Not only the home base of the extremely helpful book

by the same name, this site is also a wealth of tips and tricks from basic to advanced. I learn something every single time I visit this site.
