Contribute to Simple WP Guide
We welcome your help. As active members of various webmaster forums and online communities we know what it means to share and share alike to improve knowledge and skills that benefit everybody.
We made this website public for the benefit of other web design firms and freelancers so that it may free up some of their time spent teaching clients how to use WP. If you appreciate our efforts you can support this project by contributing in these ways;
- Point your clients to the site so they can use it as a reference. You should still spend the time to briefly walk them through the admin panel for the first time. But this site should allow you to greatly reduce the amount of time you have to spend tutoring your clients after that brief initial tutorial.
- Comment on our pages. If you feel something was missed, or not explained simply enough, or spot horrible typos, then write a comment.
- Write new Pages. Are we missing something here? Is there a common task users would need to be guided on that we missed? An essential plugin that everyone should be using? Write the page we missed for publication on this site.
Before going ahead and spending the time to write new pages you should contact us to propose what you feel the site needs. If we think it would be a benefit, and is not an advanced topic better covered by the WP Codex, then we will give you the go ahead to write and submit it for publication. In return you will get some link love from us.
Page Contribution Guidelines
Keep it Simple Stupid. Seriously, we are not out to turn the users of this site into instant WP pro’s. That takes a fair bit of time of just using it. We simply want to give people a good base to work from and allow them to quickly get up to speed on using WP. Remember that this is intended for those who are using the WP admin panel for the first time and likely it’s their first website.
Include Screen Shots
Use screen shot images to point out where features are located in the WP admin panel. Crop your images down to view just that feature. Look around the site and you will see how we tend to use images.
