WordPress.org Theme Review Process is Broken

Update: The Eru­dite 3.0.2 is now live on WordPress.org. I’ve already crit­i­cized the WordPress.org Theme Review process when it first launched. Things seemed to be improv­ing, but either the team is poor­ly orga­nized, severe­ly under-pow­ered, or both. The Eru­dite 3.0 has been in review for 3 months, 3.0.2 since Sept 28. The review tick­et was assigned […]

Seth Godin Chooses The Erudite

Seth Godin should need no intro­duc­tion to any­one on the web. What might need intro­duc­tion is his new ven­ture called the Domi­no Project, in which he’s part­ner­ing with Ama­zon to rethink the fatal­ly flawed cur­rent pub­lish­ing mod­el.

The Erudite 2.7 Released

I also did the long-over­­due task of combing […]

The Erudite 2.6.1 Released

First off, it’s been a wild ride since The Eru­dite was made a fea­tured theme in the WordPress.org themes direc­to­ry. It went from about 20 down­loads a day to over 200! With it has come an increase in bug reports and a some help with more trans­la­tions. I hope that all of these down­loads means […]
