New Tutorial- Beautiful WordPress Post

Agent Genius Style

9f07095dccabd91bc9086db10f8ed2cfA lot of folks have asked me about the next tutorial I’d be doing, and I know I said I would demo the backend of wordpress, however, the only way to do that and not do a 14 day screencast or a 700 mile long post would be to break it down bit by bit.

Today I begin the series with simple posts and how to create posts style. I hope you enjoy it. My next tutorial will be out very quickly now that I have a format setup.

    Benn, Bless you!!! This tutorial is just what I need. I have a blog and blog regularly, but I do struggle with wordpress. I learned a few useful things from your tutorial. I’m still not able to figure out how to put in a picture, maybe I need a plug-in or something. Adding a plug-in is also an area of confusion for me. I look forward to your next lesson.

    Sue –

    I highly recommend using a blogging client. I use ecto; allegedly this is the ultimate list” of blogging clients.

    In addition to providing a place to do wysiwyg editing and previewing, it also enables you to keep all of your posts – and drafts! – in one place.

    I don’t have to worry about too many pics cause I cannot figure out how to get them in there. Benn you made it look so easy in the tutorial. Must be a plug-in. Waiting anxiously for that tutorial. 😉

    I hate IE – The screencast was playing with no narrative – Did make it a little less informative then it was when firefox showed me the light! Great Post thanks for the help Benn-
