WordPress Provides Its Own Documentation. Why Do I Need WPTrainMe? +

WordPress Provides Its Own Documentation. Why Should I Buy WPTrainMe?

WordPress Codex - WordPress For Web Developers

The WordPress Codex is the official repository for documentation about WordPress.

Although the Codex provides extensive documentation on WordPress, most of this information is geared toward web developers. As such, WordPress users who lack skills or interest in areas like PHP or editing code generally find the information too technical and difficult to follow.

One of our main objectives is to help non-technical people like small business website owners understand what they can achieve using WordPress and to show them how to get better results online.

We provide tutorials for WordPress end users, not web developers.

WPTrainMe is not designed to compete with or replace the official WordPress documentation, but to provide users with practical step-by-step tutorials that are easy-to-follow, immediately actionable, and that will help users learn how to manage and grow their web presence while also saving them considerable time and money.

If you're looking for practical information on how to run your WordPress website or blog effectively you will probably find our tutorials more relevant than the official WordPress documentation. To use an analogy, we are like a driving instructor teaching someone how to drive a vehicle, not a vehicle manufacturer providing specifications to auto part dealers and auto repairers.

WordPress Is Huge! Does WPTrainMe Really Cover Everything There Is To Know About WordPress? +

WordPress Is Huge! Does WPTrainMe Really Cover Everything There Is To Know About WordPress?

WPTrainMe

We recognize that there is almost no limit to what WordPress can do. As such, we have defined the scope of our tutorials as follows:

To provide tutorials that will enable people with little to no skills or interest in coding to build, manage, and grow an effective web presence using WordPress. We will not include tutorials on technical areas that require general WordPress users to have web coding or programming skills.

We provide hundreds of detailed step-by-step tutorials about WordPress and we will continue to adding new tutorials on a regular basis.

Our tutorials are organized into the following training modules:

  • Introduction To WordPress
  • WordPress Installation
  • WordPress Configuration
  • How To Use WordPress
  • WordPress Plugins
  • WordPress Customization
  • WordPress Management
  • WordPress Optimization
  • WordPress Security
  • WordPress Strategies

Note: Some advanced tutorials include references to editing code in WordPress files. We try to keep these tutorials as simple as possible for non-technical users.

Where editing code is required to help you complete a task, we will either provide you with as much detail as we can using screenshots and practical examples to guide you through the process, or add links to useful resources and information for further reference. We always recommend backing up all files before making any changes to your site (and provided step-by-step tutorials on how to do this), or recommend that you ask a professional or more experienced WordPress user for help.

help To view all of our tutorials, go here:

redarrow Index Of WordPress Tutorials

 

Our systems allow us to keep adding new tutorials and link these to existing tutorials where relevant to ensure that all of the information remains organized and easy to find when you need it.

We guarantee that you will not find another WordPress training system as comprehensive and helpful to new WordPress users as WPTrainMe!

Do I Need Web Skills To Use Your WordPress Tutorials?

No.

Do You Promote Any Web Development Or Web Design Services In The Tutorials? +

Do You Promote Any Web Development Or Web Design Services In The Tutorials?

No.

We only provide WordPress training. We do not provide web development or web design services of our own, and we do not provide or advertise anyone else’s web development or web design services in our tutorials.

If you provide WordPress-related services like web development, web design, web consulting, etc., our goal is to partner with you and be your clients’ WordPress training provider. We have no interest or desire in competing with you for other web services.

In fact, if you provide any WordPress-related services (e.g. web development, web design, web consulting, web hosting, etc.), we want to help your business get more exposure online and hopefully help you attract new clients. We have some ideas that we will be developing later to help give WordPress service providers who use our plugin to train their clients additional exposure to potential new clients.

Please note that, as part of providing useful training content, we do recommend many free and paid solutions in our tutorials. We also try to provide alternative recommendations wherever possible.

For example, we list a number of reliable web hosting companies in our WordPress Installation training module. We also provide dozens of tutorials on essential, useful and popular WordPress plugins (free and premium), WordPress theme providers, and third-party services that integrate with WordPress.

If you provide a high quality WordPress-related product such as a plugin or theme that you have created or developed yourself and would like us to review it for possible inclusion in the training content, then feel free to get in touch.
