To operate within WordPress, you’ll need to learn how to use WordPress’s Dashboard. It isn’t too difficult, but I advise everyone to become familiar with the Dashboard and WordPress using videos for initial guidance. Videos are an excellent way to learn WordPress as you can see exactly how to operate within WordPress by watching an expert work in WordPress.
To be honest, one can waste A LOT of time browsing the internet and YouTube for videos showing how to use WordPress. I have used all of the below when I was getting started, and have come to truly value these videos after watching many, many others that I haven’t been too thrilled with.
Below are some video resources to help get you started:
WordPress Apprentice Free Tutorials – Great starting place for getting to know WordPress.
WordPress Apprentice Essentials Video Course – This video series is more in depth and I highly recommend using these if you will be adding content to your website or building your own WordPress web site. The price is $47, and well worth it.
Kirk Bigleone, the gentleman who created the above videos, gives a clear and concise explanation of the many features of WordPress. The production quality of the videos is excellent.
