If you are hosting an event with sponsors or even a service provider who wants to showcase clients, I would recommend using the Links Library. It is a native content type to WordPress and for the non-bloggers out there it’s rarely put to use. Using this method allows you to template the Links Page as logos with perfect spacing and consistency. If you try to do it with a bucket of images within a page or post, it gets rather cumbersome to edit and aligning things can get messy.

If you are into WordPress, you’re into blogging. And if you’re into blogging, you’ve heard of guest posting. Depending on who you speak to, it is not worth your precious time, or it is still a very worthwhile strategy for increasing your blog’s exposure.
It’s time for the finale, the big one, the 100th offering from WPMU DEV Premium, and one I think you are goiing to like.
Introducing the WordPress MU affiliate plugin!
This plugin comes direct from our work at Blogs.mu.
We wanted to have the facility to offer people affiliate payments for sending us new, paying, users… and that’s exactly what this plugin does.
It allows any user at your WordPress MU (or regular WordPress site!) to simply become and affiliate by filling in their PayPal email.
They are then given a link, for example, http://blogs.mu/?ref=admin-63 which they can then use to promote the site.
