Weekly Recap: The Image Widget, Pods CMS, and Interviews with Matt

Happy Halloween!

This week, we took a little break from WordCamp videos to post a couple of tutorials, a couple of interviews, and one introduction to a different way of using WordPress.

We published one tutorial on a newer feature of WordPress.com: the Image Widget. If you’re a self-hosted WordPress user and like the widget in the video, there’s a great suggestion in the comments for a plugin you can use.

Matt Gibbs sent us a great overview of the basic functionality of the Pods CMS plugin. You’ll need some basic PHP knowledge, but if you’re interested in some of the different ways people are using WordPress, it’s definitely worth a look.

We also made available two French language tutorials:

Lastly, we posted more in the series of interviews with Matt Mullenweg, one with his thoughts on the current state of the WordPress platform, and another regarding the role and importance of open source to WordPress.

This week, there’s been some great discussion after the event on some of the video from WordCamp Seattle. Check the list of sessions here, and if you see something that interests you, join the conversation!

Next week, we have even more from the WordPress community, and we’re looking forward to more WordCamp sessions from around the world. If you have a tutorial or other WordPress-related video you’d like to share with the community, please send us a note and we’ll be happy to check it out.

More video to come on Monday!
