I love ton ten lists. Here is mine related to all things WordPress, CSS and Web design and development. Feel free to post your favorites in the comments.
- WordPress Codex: I’ve learned virtually all my WordPress tricks from the codex. It also contains some great examples, which you can apply to your WordPress themes for infinite customization.
- Blueprint CSS: A great CSS framework that can greatly reduce design time by giving you “a solid CSS foundation to build your project on top of, with an easy-to-use grid, sensible typography, and even a stylesheet for printing.”
- Printable Graph Paper: This is probably my favorite resource to date. The paper is made for visual designers, interaction designers, and information architects who do wire framing and design sketch ups.
- Web Designer Wall: Some really great tutorials and inspiration for building visually engaging Web sites. Heavily read, big community, lots of great info.
- Lightbox Clones Matrix: A useful list comparing various scripts that display images and other multimedia objects.
- Protect your CSS Modifications: If you modify your theme’s css, you might want to consider using this approach to help future proof your theme design.
- Smashing Magazine: Everything from icon sets, theme reviews, tutorials, with lots of freebies thrown in for good measure.
- A List Apart: If you make Web sites, you must bookmark this site. The Web Gods tell me it is mandatory.
