Speed up WordPress theme development with dummy content

If you develop themes for WordPress you usually focus on aesthetic part of the job, forgetting about typography.
This behavior turns into a poor readability for the end user and could pauperize the layout itself.

As we love to say, content is the king. And you should make your content nice and easy to read.

In this post, we suggest you a few useful resources created to speed up your theme development, filling your WordPress installation with various content (pages, posts, comments etc.).

You’ll be sure to stylize everything from headings to links in a proper way.

WP Dummy Content Plugin

WP Dummy Content is a plugin that creates new content automagically.

You can chose how many posts/pages to create, and which category they belongs to.
When you finish, you can remove the fake content with just a click.
