Project Argo: A collection of tools and best practices for building topic focused sites in WordPress

On this site you’ll find tools and best practices developed by our team of bloggers, editors and technologists over more than a year of daily, full-time blogging on twelve websites. Our aim was to build a system that would help a single blogger produce a robust, attractive website day after day. If you’re building a website that will feature frequent topical posts in a variety of media types, the tools we’ve built and the lessons we’ve learned are yours to use and extend.

Sites across the Argo Network are powered by WordPress, an open-source publishing platform. The technology was chosen in part to ensure that the themes, features and functionality of the Argo Platform could be easily used by individuals and others wishing to quickly build and launch topic-focused blogs. We encourage you to download and extend the tools in the Argo Platform, read through the tips and lessons we provide, and let us know what you think. Additionally, you can also explore the different niches of WordPress such as how to design or build a website using WordPress or starting a blog page using WordPress, etc. you can find several videos on the internet which you can view here, or on other video resource channels that may help you in getting the best knowledge on the exact topic you are looking for.

Overall, the sites share several key characteristics: frequent publishing, often with several posts a day; robust use of images; and a mix of curatorial and original material. Any topic-focused site that matches these criteria might benefit from our methods, themes or plugins.” Source:
