The WP-Mix site is hosted at Media Temple on a VPS/(dv) server running CentOS, Apache, PHP, and MySQL.
The WP-Mix theme is designed with shapeSpace, which is a free starter theme for WordPress. The design is minimal, responsive, and focused on content. Behind the scenes, the site runs on the latest version of WordPress, and utilizes 10 plugins, including:
- Dashboard Widgets Suite – Awesome dashboard widgets
- Prismatic – Code syntax highlighter
- Simple Ajax Chat – User chat forum
- Simple Feed Stats – Tracks feed statistics
Three other plugins are used simply to disable unwanted WP cruft. Also use plugins for database backups, XML sitemaps, and checking broken links.
