Building your website with WordPress can be Super-easy but can be overwhelming at first.
Beginners and old hands alike need help to set up and use their website, or sites.
Even if their website has been set up by a professional, people need help to continue to add content.
Once you know how to use it, there is often something you want to change or add, and you just can’t figure it out. It can be really frustrating at times - especially when you know you have done it before but can't remember the detail.

We have discovered there are umpteen ways to word a question and lack of clarity can send you off track - or even result in finding nothing relevant. Wherever possible, we try to include the "also asked" questions, which may help with searching our site.
These tips are the result of questions that have come up and we aim to provide solutions.
