WordPress Wednesdays – tips and tricks for WordPress

UPDATE: This post is outdated. Here is the updated tip.

Matthew Snider usually occupies this space, but I (Herb) thought I’d share a WordPress tip this week. Here at GeekRev, we use Standard Theme. It is an excellent theme with tons of built-in features.

This WordPress Wednesdays entry is a re-post from Matthew’s old blog as we resurrect them here at GeekRev.
