WordPress Resources

As one of the many volunteers who help out from time to time with WordPress on the WordPress Support Forum and WordPress.com Forums, I found myself repeatedly giving out link references so I started keeping notes and have put together a list of some of the link references most needed and asked for on the forum.

Some of these are links to articles on the WordPress Codex, the online manual for WordPress users, but others are answers posted on the forums, or other sites with the answers to common problems or situations that arise when using WordPress.

The WordPress Lessons on the WordPress Codex are really expanding, providing extensive step-by-step information to help anyone at any level.We hope these help you and others find their way around WordPress.

For help on using , check the many articles I’ve posted here in the WordPressdotcom category, and on the WordPress.com FAQ blog, as well as within the WordPress.com Forums.

Also check out the Site Map on Lorelle on WordPress for an extensive table of contents listing of the many helpful articles on this blog covering WordPress and WordPress.com tips, techniques, and tricks, as well as extensive information on website development, web design, and blogging.


New to WordPress: Beginners

Learning anything new can be overwhelming but there are a lot of resources that will take you through the process step-by-step.

Themes and Template Files

WordPress uses Themes to handle the website design and layout elements. Template Files and template tags are the files and tag tools that generate the results of each web page within your WordPress site. WordPress Pages are web pages within your site that feature information like “About Us”, “Contact”, “Schedule/Events”, and “Site Map”. The following resources will help you to learn how to use these to design your site.
