New: Beginner Guides to WordPress

As keen readers may well have already noticed, over the last few months we’ve been putting together a number of brand new beginner-level guides to WordPress — note the new link in the site’s main menu (here’s a direct link).

Starting off with a lengthy introductory article on what WordPress actually is and when to use it, before moving on to topics like how to choose the best hosting, themes and plugins for your site, and finishing up with a few slightly more advanced topics like troubleshooting and monitoring your site, there’s hopefully something for just about everyone here.

In early 2017, we’ll be continuing to add a few more guides on various subjects, but here’s a complete list of what’s available to date:

  1. An Introduction to WordPress: What is it and When to Use it
  2. WordPress.com vs Self-Hosted WordPress.org – Which to Choose and Why?
  3. How to Choose a Great Domain Name for a Website
  4. How to Choose the Best WordPress Hosting Service
  5. How to Install WordPress – All You Need to Know
  6. How to Move WordPress to a New Host – Everything You Need to Know!
  7. How to Choose the Ideal WordPress Theme
  8. Where to Buy Top-Quality WordPress Themes
