wordpress-1This week's roundup is WordPress-focused. See below for everything you may have missed in the last week in the world of WordPress news. We even threw in some World Cup news...
  1. 3 best WordPress alternatives for serious business owners (AllBusiness)
    Wondering if a WordPress site is your only option? Not so, my friends...Check out AllBusiness's breakdown on the top three alternatives to WordPress - and they break it down even further by segmenting the top options for content-based sites, eCommerce sites and blog-only sites. 

  2. 11 WordPress plugins for customer support (PracticalEcommerce)
    Bad, untimely or an entire lack-thereof customer service can KILL your business. Take a look at PracticalEcommerce's article on the 11 best WordPress plugins for customer support. 
  3. Spambot targets WordPress with spray and pray (InfoSecurityGroup Magazine)
    Seems we've all been just a teeny bit World-Cup-Obsessed over the last month...it's OK, you can admit it...and you can bet that hackers didn't miss a beat in preying on that interest. 

  4. Is WordPress becoming the SAO of CMS's? (Diginomica)
    Den Howlett offers a thoughtful overview on the relationship between WordPress and Systems, Applications and Processing (SAP). While admittedly very different in functionality, there's an interesting connection between the almighty WordPress and SAP.

  5. Best market for WordPress Themes: TemplateMonster or ThemeForest? (SitePoint)
    Transparently leaning toward TemplateMonster (who partnered on the post), SitePoint seeks to make you aware of the differences between the two platforms by detailing TemplateMonster's EasyJet and ThemeForest's Argenta templates. While the post is openly slanted, it does give a seemingly honest breakdown of the two, so you can read and decide for yourself .
