This guide is intended to be a simple guide to using WordPress (WP) for those new to managing a WP powered site. It covers the common tasks of writing and managing content and basic site maintenance. It does not cover how to customise WordPress or any advanced coding, which will need to be done by a Web Developer.
WordPress is a pre-built Content Management System (CMS) so there is already a lot of help information out there on the web. However, after installing WordPress onto websites for clients we quickly realised that there is a bit of a learning curve for those new to running a website. Often, these are small business owners who need the ability to update their own website but have no technical web skills, or new bloggers who struggle with using the handy but sometimes overwhelmingly extensive user manual available on the WordPress website.
We plan to keep this WordPress User Guide as simple as we can. There is no need to re-invent the wheel as the WordPress Codex (The online WordPress User Manual) covers all the advanced stuff very well, but we understand that it can be difficult to know where to start. This document aims to cover the basics of writing and managing text content, and adding and formatting images.
