Re: WordPress for dummies

When I started using wordpress in 2011 I mastered the php editing I had to do for my themes with a little help from google. I would save my edits or book marked pages with the code blocks I needed to edit and apply them to every install of wp. It was and is quite easy to use. All you do is install plugins, activate them and you pretty much have a website going in about n hour, 2 hours, depends. But if you google the wordpress codecs you will get a indepth manual on how to run self hosted sites. It's well worth the read.

Hi Jackie,

Sorry for doubting your expertise. I'm really just floundering around in WordPress. Suddenly pressing tab has begun to take me out of the editor. It goes to a button called Toggle Panel, not to the Publish box. I have quite a number of comments on the few posts I have been able to make.

I need a tutorial on blogs. Frankly, I don't think WordPress is very friendly to beginners. A mailing list would be much more appropriate for that than the forums.

Let's hear feedback.
