St. Louis WordPress Showcase

Do you create WordPress websites – or run one? Are you from the STL area?

If you answered yes, then we want to show you off!

St. Louis has an amazing community of WordPress users and enthusiasts, and it’s time to be recognized by the region and showcased to the world. Of the sites you’ve worked on, run or otherwise been a part of, enter your favorites in the comments.

We especially want:

  • great blogs
  • sites that tell a story / are for a cause
  • sites that don’t look like wordpress
  • sites that are for big names/companies
  • sites with special functionality
  • sites that are… well how do we put it… awesome!

We’ll showcase the best sites at the WordCamp afterparty. Then, after WordCamp, ALL the submissions we get will go into a Google Slideshow you’ll be able to find on our site.

Strut your stuff in the comments.

    Cool stuff. My site at http://www.hikingmike.com is my personal site dedicated to hiking/backpacking, with trip reports, a little bit of blogging, and some articles. I made a child theme off of Thematic and also made a plugin to rotate my banner images every x time interval. Cheers, everyone.

    I definitely would like to strut my own – http://blondish.net. I’m using quite a few unique hooks on Genesis and also use custom post types and a few special templates… well and its a great blog… old one too.

    – a really cool small biz from Nashville, Illinois that emerged last year because Illinois got their brain together on the CCW issue AND these people promote gun safety – http://ontargetfirearmsacademy.com

  5. I really enjoyed working on this site for Insight Theatre Company. They have such phenomenal shows and everyone there works hard – from set design, lighting, costumes, and actors. We used WordPress with Advanced Custom Fields and Custom Post Types to make adding and managing shows and seasons a breeze. Check it out!

    Main Page:
    http://wp-brasil.org/

    Additional pages:
    http://participe.wp-brasil.org/ (p2 page for open discussions)

    Everything has been built in community and has been controled and developed in our GitHub repository:

    https://github.com/wpbrasil

    We are still learning on how to engage our WP users/developers to be more organized and we would love to exchange experience with all of you in St. Louis and US.

    Thank you!

    I’m not a tech person–I’m a journalist. I have a website but I am still learning (and finding it a tough learning curve) and would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
