WordPress Customization Tutorials - WPCompendium.org

Here are some of our most frequently asked questions:

Do You Provide Support For WordPress?

We {are a free WordPress training site|provide free WordPress tutorials for beginners. As a result, we do not have the resources to provide support for WordPress users.

Can You Help Me With XYZ?

The short answer is “no!”

Our goal is to provide WordPress users with tutorials that will help them “connect the missing dots” on how to grow a business online effectively using inexpensive non-technical solutions. To achieve this goal, we often publish tutorials on using third-party plugins and solutions that will integrate with WordPress in addition to tutorials on how to use core WordPress features.

WordPress is constantly evolving . This means that thousands of people are not only improving the WordPress software,  but also working on existing and developing new plugins, themes and other third-party services and solutions.

No one can keep up with these changes. Some of our tutorials, therefore, will contain outdated information and some of the “best”solutions we recommend here will no doubt run into problems or have newer and better alternatives. If you experience any issues with WordPress plugins, WordPress themes, or third-party solutions, please visit their websites and contact their support teams for help. If you purchased something that we recommended on WPCompendium.org and it doesn’t work for you, please let us know and contact the developer for support. If they cannot offer you support, then ask for a refund and look for an alternative solution.
