How to make a word press blog similar to reddit

Published on

Recently a client asked me to build them a blog that looked similar in nature to Reddit. At first, I honestly thought that the client was off base but the more we talked about it, the more that I came around to his way of thinking. I spend a great deal of time trying to design blogs that have magazine style look and feel or something that in the past I considered more pleasing to the eyes. Once he did convince me that this design would suit him well, I was left with the task of figuring out how to do it.

I used a WordPress Plug-in called WP Category Post List Widget.
