The Ultimate WordPress Guide For Beginners

Are you looking for the ultimate WordPress Guide For Beginners? If so, can help you!

The Ultimate Guide About WordPress For Beginners - WPCompendium.orgHere at, our aim is to build “The Ultimate WordPress Guide For Beginners.” We’ve spent years creating the detailed tutorials on this site to take you step-by-step through the process of building, managing, and growing a WordPress-driven website … all at minimal cost and with no coding skills required.

This post explains the challenges we’ve addressed to turn into the “ultimate” WordPress guide for beginners.

The Ultimate WordPress Guide For Beginners

In order to create the “best guide for beginners about WordPress available, we’ve tried to address the challenges of training new WordPress users.

Some of these challenges include:

  • How to educate an audience of non-technical end users about the benefits of using WordPress,
  • How to keep all of the tutorials organized and up-to-date,
  • How to present the content in logical, step-by-step sequence with no missing steps,
  • How to deliver the information in a practical format that users can easily follow and readily apply to their own websites,
  • How to make the information instantly accessible to users as they work through our WordPress training curriculum.

The Challenges Of Educating, Teaching And Training New WordPress Users

Many blogs, forums, and discussion groups provide WordPress tips and tutorials online, but most of these resources typically tend to be:

  • Aimed at a technically-savvy audience (i.e. people who sell web services or want to learn how to write and edit code), not non-techie types like business/website owners who have no interest in learning how to code and just want results online, and
  • Delivered in a format where the information is hard to keep up-to-date (e.g. PDF guides and videos). Without a proper document management system in place, it’s difficult to keep information organized and up-to-date, track which sections of the content have been updated, and know who has received which version of your content.

We have recently published a guide on Amazon called WordPress For Beginners: The Ultimate WordPress Guide For Non-Techies!In this guide, we explain that if we were to include the hundreds of detailed WordPress step-by-step tutorials available on, the guide would be thousands of pages long and it would be extremely difficult to keep the information up-to-date.

Instead, we provide a special link at the end of the guide giving users access to WPTrainMe – our private WordPress training membership site, which contains links to all of the tutorials on, plus hundreds of video tutorials and a plugin that lets you access everything from your own WordPress dashboard.

All written tutorials on are free. The WordPress video tutorials can be accessed for a very low fee by downloading the WPTrainMe PRO edition of the plugin. Together, the written and video tutorials and plugin form a comprehensive and well-organized WordPress step-by-step training system for beginners that addresses all of the challenges we’ve described above.
