WordPress School: Links

I’ve dreamed of teaching a class or workshop on nothing but links. Web links fascinate me.

WordPress School: Addresses and URLs

Someday someone will write a book about the complexities of website addresses, permalinks, pretty permalinks, nonces, preview links, conditional links, and all of the other linky link links that WordPress uses.

WordPress School: Paragraphs and Line Breaks

The previous assignment in Lorelle’s WordPress School covered the visual and text editors in WordPress. In this assignment, I’d like to focus on making paragraphs within both editors.

WordPress School: Terms – Administration Screens

One of the greatest challenges I have in teaching WordPress to clients, students, and in workshops and online courses like Lorelle’s WordPress School is the fact that WordPress keeps changing the interface and the names of the various interface bits and pieces. They are doing it again on WordPress.com with a “new and improved” interface […]

WordPress School: Headings

Many people will tell you that the images you use in a published post are the most important visual elements on a web page. Don’t believe them. It is an HTML content tag that is often overlooked that is the most powerful visual element on a web page: the heading. At this point in Lorelle’s […]
