WPCompendium.org announces the launch of their comprehensive online user guide covering all aspects of WordPress usage for beginners. In a constantly changing and evolving online space, this is a very useful and essential tool and includes hundreds of detailed and up-to-date WordPress tutorials.

For more information visit https://wpcompendium.org

According to Martin Aranovitch of WPCompendium.org, “over a quarter of all websites around the world are now being powered by WordPress. Many businesses have WordPress-built websites, but may not know this, as it’s not something that web developers or web designers will necessarily educate their clients about. WPCompendium.org provides hundreds of detailed step-by-step WordPress tutorials created specifically to educate non-technical users about the benefits of using WordPress and to help businesses achieve the results they want online with no coding skills required.”

Websites are an essential part of a firm’s marketing and digital business strategy. In the Digital Age, having a successful online presence can mean the difference between business success and failure. Businesses also need training on how to use their websites to get the results they want online. Most website owners, however, are not technical-minded users and many businesses do not receive adequate training on how to get the most out of their websites. As a result, many are put in a situation where they either end up having to hire web developers, web designers and technical experts to use, manage, and market their website, which can significantly increase their running costs, or having to learn how to do it themselves from ‘how-to’ ebooks and guides, which can be very time-consuming and frustrating.

According to Martin, “the problem with buying ‘how-to’ ebooks and guides on using WordPress is that WordPress is constantly evolving and the information can quickly become outdated. Most WordPress tutorials are aimed at technical people with coding skills and the information tends to be scattered in bits and pieces all over the web. All of the WordPress tutorials on WPCompendium.org are online, free of cost, organized in logical sequence, and written specifically for people who don’t want to learn how to code. Having the content online also makes it easier to keep all of the information up-to-date and linked with other relevant tutorials. This is very important, especially when you have hundreds of tutorials with interlinked content.”

WPCompendium.org’s user guides and tutorials for beginners also addresses the dilemma WordPress website owners face when it comes to hiring technical experts to get things done or wasting countless hours searching for information online.

“The Ultimate WordPress User Guide For Beginners helps business owners and their staff get the most out of their WordPress website, saving them considerable time and money in the process. If you own a WordPress website and want to learn how to get things done quickly and inexpensively, the tutorials listed in the guide are an ideal place to start. The guide walks you step-by-step through all of the basics of using WordPress, allowing you to create, edit, and publish your content online without the need to touch code, or hire professionals or technical experts. You can learn at your own pace and come back to the site whenever you need help or more information. All tutorials can also be accessed within the WordPress dashboard using a plugin called WPTrainMe (wptrainme.com).”

The tutorials at WPCompendium.org are the result of over 10 years of expertise with WordPress and six years of content writing. The WordPress User Guide For Beginners can be accessed online or via a downloadable PDF for free at https://wpcompendium.org/wordpress-basics/ultimate-wordpress-user-guide-for-beginners.

Underline And Justify Buttons Removed From The Editor In WordPress 4.7

The WordPress development team has removed the Underline and Justify buttons from the visual editor in version 4.7, as it was felt that underlining text can confuse readers who may interpret it as a hyperlink and the justify button was removed because most web browsers that render CSS and HTML lack sophisticated page layout functions to adjust the gaps left in words by justification and can make text less readable.

Important WordPress Update Tips

WP version 4.7 - Update

We recommend doing the following before upgrading to any new version of WordPress:

  • Perform a complete backup of all your WordPress files and database.
  • Search online for any problems or issues that other WordPress users may be experiencing with the new version. This includes incompatibilities and conflicts with plugins, themes, and other issues (search Google for something like “WordPress 4.7 issues” or “WP 4.7 bugs”, then go through some of the results to see what kind of issues and errors users are experiencing).
  • Once you have done the above, then upgrade to the new version as soon as possible to ensure that your site remains protected against any security vulnerabilities found in previous versions.
