My name is Jeff Chandler and I’ve been writing about WordPress since 2007. In 2009, I created WP Tavern and sold it to WordPress co-creator Matt Mullenweg in 2011. I stayed on as a part-time and then full-time employee until August of 2019. After a six month break and some motivation by a few folks, WP Mainline is my next project.

This site is a collection of commentary, news, and community related to WordPress. It’s a place where people can gather to build each other up instead of tearing each other down. I enjoy watching trains as a hobby thus the many visual and text references to trains throughout the site.

Please join us me as we take an awesome train ride through the WordPress ecosystem.
