WordPress Video Tutorials
This post will be updated as more WordPress video tutorials are created. The first list of videos (10) simply outline some of the main tasks required to upload the WordPress blogging platform to a hosting server, configure it, and make an initial post. Note: I will also be including video tutorials from other sources.
Included in this first batch of WordPress video tutorials are; changing file permissions, installing WordPress plugins, completing a WordPress trackback, embedding Adsense code in the WordPress default theme, and how to setup a Feedburner datafeed link.
Many beginners get confused when viewing the WordPress videos on uploading. In the list below, there are two videos on uploading. The first one in the list assumes you already have a web site, and you just want to add a Wordpress blog to the domain. In other words, you end up with a link off your existing home page (index page) to your new WordPress blog. The second uploading video assumes you are using WordPress as your main site. In other words, your blog IS the site and there is not an existing web site or domain.
I’ll be adding many more video tutorials designed to help beginners optimize their WordPress blog. I will be doing a video showing how to use a .htaccess file to allow the use of “pretty urls” (search engine friendly permalinks). I will be doing a WordPress video showing users how to ensure their blog has an edge over most other blogs (by customizing meta tags). I will be adding a video that takes beginners step by step through the Google sitemap process. I have a long list of videos to do, so you may consider bookmarking this particular permalink.
Ten Wordpress Video Tutorials (these video tutorials use the WordPress Default theme)
(Note: for optimum video quality download the videos to your computer and play them with the Google Video Player. You can download the Google Video player by clicking any of the links below. Once on the Google Video web site, look for the Google Video Player download link on the L/H side of the page. Download and install their player and then download the videos to your computer for viewing. All video tutorials are presently free to view and download.)
