All, Wordpress

WordPress.tv just launched

Article written by Jeeremie

Matt Mullenweg and his team launched WordPress.TV a few days ago, a “home to tutorials for both WordPress self-installs and WordPress.com to help you get blogging fast and hassle-free”. Their tutorials cover most of the WordPress basics plus some advanced technics to get the most of your Worpress blog.

I picked up some very interesting tutorials for you to watch:

The WordPress.com dashboard – introduction

The WordPress.com dashboard is easy to set-up, customize and use the way you want to. This video walks you through it’s features.

Writing and publishing a post

The thing you’ll probably be doing most with WordPress – writing and publishing posts – is covered in this short flyby tutorial.

Setting up the Gravatar plugin for WordPress 2.7

In the third of three videos on Gravatars, Derrick Siu of the Net Experiment explains how to add the Gravatar plugin to your self-installed WordPress blog. While Gravatar is now included in-core, the plugin offers some extra functionality.

Previewing and activating themes

If you’re not sure about a theme and want to try it on for size before wrapping your live blog in it, that’s easy enough to do. Here’s how.

Moderating recent comments from the dashboard

If you want to get a quick glance at your latest comments, or moderate them right from the dashboard, this video will walk you through the feature.

How to create a static frontpage for your blog

If you’d rather have your landing page display something other than your latest blog posts, WordPress makes that easy. This video walks you through the process of setting up separate blog and front pages.

Using the WordPress.com Video Player – A DemoGirl Tour

The awesome DemoGirl (AKA Molly McDonald) takes us on a tour of the WordPress.com video player, available for WordPress.com users via the optional Space upgrade.

… and many more tutorials on WordPress.TV.
