I Declare Today WordPress Appreciation Day

Justin Tadlock  

When I first started learning WordPress your tutorials on how to create custom post types and taxonomies helped me immensely. Much of the php knowledge I’ve developed over the past year I can directly attribute to you, and your amazing writing. Your book on plugin development was a joy to read, and your writing is simple, concise, and efficient. I love that.

Even though the support for your plugin is lackluster, it almost doesn’t matter because it helps my content get discovered in a million new ways every day. Your expertise is truly reflected in the plugin, and I can’t thank you enough for not only making SEO easy, but also teaching me a number of things along the way.

Your Smashing Magazine book really helped me get my hands dirty with WordPress theme customization and design. I look forward to reading your book on Tumblr as well.

Gravity Forms Team    

Holy shit balls you are amazing. Every time I think of something I want to do with Gravity Forms I am greeted with a page of documentation showing me how to do it. Not only that, it integrates perfectly with WordPress, and all of the third part providers I use on a regular basis. I would pay for your developer license 10 times over with the amount of time you have saved me by automating all of my routine processes. Thank you… fucking thank you…. fucking thank you a million times.

I use your post type and taxonomy generators ALL THE TIME. It is an exceptional display of what can be done with Gravity Forms, and I can’t thank you enough for putting it together.

Not only that, I contacted you several months ago to see how you put the generator together, and you invested time in giving me a thorough response. I’d like to thank you for that!

Right Here LLC.    

I don’t know how more people don’t know about your plugins, but they should. You have developed some seriously cool shit. If there was ever a company that I believe could code a “build your own” custom taxonomy, post-type, and meta box plugin that didn’t suck, force reliance, and slow your site down to a craw,  it would be you guys.

Your writing has impacted me more than you know, and you’ve shown me so many WordPress tools that I use on a daily basis that I can’t thank you enough.  I read your articles more often than I call my mom. It’s sad, but it’s true.

Keep writing your phenomenal articles.


I use your WP-Clear theme for my site The Campus Companion. Much of what I know about building WordPress themes comes from observing your extremely clean and well-commented code. Your focus on simplicity and following WordPress best practices makes me happy every time I edit one of your files.

Your whole team deserves a pat on the back, or possibly a cake party. I have many code snippets that I can toss your way if you are interested!


Your plugin increased the average number of page views on my site The Campus Companion by 300%.

I am about to roll out a database of 7,400+ US colleges this coming week. I will be using YARPP to calculate related colleges using the new custom post type and taxonomy features. It’s remarkable how well it works!

Keep up the fantastic work.


You are my supply chain, and I rely on your for quite a bit of work I do.  I would like to thank you for creating marketplaces that help my business thrive.

I don’t know what I would do without you.


You changed my life.
