20 Things the New WordPress Person Should Know

I’m heading out to WordCamp Philadelphia tomorrow. I can tell the organizers are excited, and this is promising to be an awesome conference.

My talk is called 20 Things the New WordPress User Should Know (PDF). I tried to think of the stuff that confused me at first, and things that may not be obvious immediately. This is a basic introduction type thing, explaining:

  • WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org
  • Themes
  • Plugins
  • Editing tips
  • Using WordPress as a content management system
  • Uploading media
  • Hosting
  • Taxonomies
  • Slugs
  • Revisions
  • Security
  • other stuff

Now, I’d better get to bed – it’s going to be a looooong day tomorrow.
