New Year’s WordPress Housekeeping Tips

WordPress Attachment Details

I wish I had seen this in December as I like to do year-end cleanup and new year planning during the holidays. Since it was only published yesterday, I’ll share it with you anyway because it has such wonderful information.

These things should be done on a regular basis, not just at the start of each year. It will serve as a good reminder checklist. Here are the thirteen items it lists:

  • Better Image Data
  • Optimize Your Installation
  • Optimize Your Images
  • Find and Learn Great Tools
  • Automate Your Workflow
  • Optimize Your Interface
  • Taxonomies Are Your Friend
  • Remove Unnecessary Plugins
  • Use Rich Content
  • Perform a Security Overhaul
  • Start a Blog
  • Contribute Back
  • Start Learning to Code

I see a number of things that I’ve been meaning to do and think that perhaps 2015 will be a good time to start. Things like the last three items on the list.
