When teaching clients how to update their website, I frequently hear the question “Is there a manual for WordPress?”

1. WordPress Core Manual

The folks at easywpguide.com has a written book, and an Online Manual.  There is an extensive Table of Contents, covering WordPress’s core features.

It’s geared toward beginners, and is a useful reference, when you want to understand the various settings and options that come with WordPress.

Manuals are great, but they can be a bit overwhelming.  So I put together a video tutorial, and a written Quick Start Guide help help people get started…
