Many of the websites we have created in the last year of so have been built on the WordPress platform. WordPress is more than a great blogging platform it is also a very powerful content management system (CMS) and for those clients who wish to maintain their site themselves it is a good option.
Once we complete a WordPress site we don’t just turn it over to the client and let then figure stuff out for themselves, we provide an interactive training session. Here is what we generally cover.
- How to login
- The anatomy of the WordPress dashboard
- Writing a new blog post
- Adding and assigning blog categories
- SEO techniques for blog posts
- Dealing with comments, approving, editing and trashing
- Adding links
- Uploading photos
- Uploading documents
- Viewing and editing website pages
- Adding new pages
While this is not a comprehensive list of the all the things capable from WordPress, it is the perfect collection of “need to know how’s” for clients who want to edit and update the content of their sites.
