WordPress Tutorials for Artists

About the WordPress Tutorials

The WordPress Tutorials for Artists is a member’s site for artists, or anyone who wants to learn WordPress. Inside you will find detailed step by step instructions for adding, managing and modifying content and image portfolios for your website and/or blog with WordPress.

Artists are visual people; therefore presenting concepts via images with descriptive bubbles and instructional text fits more with the artistic process. Images are road maps with everything laid out as it actually exists in the real world, or the virtual world, as the case may be.

With the WordPress for Tutorials Artists you will learn how to use WordPress with a multitude of instructional images and videos.

Artbiz Customized Theme and WordPress Plus clients are automatically registered for the tutorial site for free.

Tutorial Organization

The tutorials cover the basics in each section, trying to take a progressive approach so that each section builds on knowledge and skill acquired earlier in the tutorials. That said, you can access any section of the school as needed to accomplish specific tasks or simply to refresh your memory.

All the screenshots and usage come from WordPress installed on this site or others, but they apply equally to WordPress installed on any site. Since WordPress periodically upgrades its functionality and adds new features, this course will be updated whenever there is a new WordPress release. As a member of this site you will be automatically notified by email when ever there is a new or update tutorial.

Even if you feel you have it all under control, check back from time to time for information on new features, tips and tricks.

Objectives

The intention is for you to learn how to manage your online portfolio and text content, as well as administer your WordPress site. By using the tutorials, you will be able to:

Your tutorials are very well written and illustrated. While some assume a moderately knowledgeable user, they make sense to a neophyte such as myself. You have given me the tools to learn how to highlight the visibility of my website to search engines while protecting my web images from appropriation – and so much more. I would strongly recommend your tutorials to all artists.
