Suggestion: Basic Coding Tutorials
We all know the codex needs updating and some of us know keeping it up to date is like rewiring your house without turning off the power. Anyway, when the good people at BP get around to it I think they should include some basic coding tutorials. Things like how to use tools like Firebug to fix/adjust css etc. along with other basics.
As you know there is a flood of questions by users everyday that can be solved easily with a little basic knowledge. Of course few of these people will ever read those first, but at least you can just paste a link instead of wasting time answering the same basic questions over and over. When 1.7 rolls out I believe this problem will only increase as BP becomes more popular. It’s better to teach them to fish than keep buying them lunch.
Perhaps you should bring in some contributing writers to the blog to write some tutorials. There are a lot of talented people here that are writing these type of articles for their own site. I think it would be good if you tapped into that.
