Products for WordPress by Ron & Andrea Rennick
In August 2010, Ron & Andrea consolidated their commercial plugin, documentation & support offerings into WordPress eBooks. At WordPress eBooks, we offer a range of free and commercial eBooks for WordPress networks (multisite). All plugins in the commercial eBooks include lifetime support and updates.
In addition to more than 20 years experience as a professional developer, Ron has worked extensively on the WordPress network functionality. This combined experience enables him to design and develop efficient and easy to use WordPress plugins. The ebooks themselves are written in Andrea’s clear and concise style with plenty of screenshots and extensive directions and tips.
GenesisConnect was developed for use with the Genesis Theme Framework from StudioPress, GenesisConnect is a commercial plugin which provides BuddyPress theme support for Genesis and Genesis Child Themes. This is sold and supported through a partnership with StudioPress.
Ron and Andrea are both on hand in the StudioPress forums to answer any questions relating to the plugin, and to help direct new BuddyPress users to the appropriate documentation.
In February of 2008, Andrea started the WPMU Tutorials blog to help pass on information learned about WordPress MU. Focusing on the how-to for both new users and more experienced developers, it quickly became a go-to source of information.
Even though WordPress MU developed has ceased as a result of the merge of WordPress and WordPress MU, the site is still relevant, but has undergone a slight name change. It is now known as WordPress “Must-Use” Tutorials, this is a nod at the mu-plugins folder which was heavily used in WordPressMU, and now in WordPress networks (multisite).
Ron has been a programming professionally since the late 80s and a WordPress user since 2005. He has been actively involved in the WordPress community over the last seven years.
Ron was added as a guest WordPress Core Committer for the 3.0 development cycle. While working on WordPress 3.0, Ron focused primarily on merging the WordPress and WordPress MU codebases. He has written well over 100 plugins and has collaborated on several plugins with other members of the WordPress community. Some of those are available via WordPress eBooks, his profile and WordPress "Must-Use" Tutorials.
Andrea has been a long-term user of WordPress, since 2004, and plays an active role in support and documentation for the community at large.
She was a moderator on the WordPress MU forums before they were closed to posting. Since then, she has been a moderator on the WordPress support forums. Her wordpress.org profile shows her abundant activity in the community at large. She is also one of the co-authors of WordPress All-in-One For Dummies, out now.
