WordPress 2.6 User Guide

In Wordpress on September 16, 2008 at 8:46 pm

After weeks of hard work, I’ve finally finished it!  The WordPress 2.6 User Guide is ready for the world.

I’m not going to make it available directly from the blog any more, however, as we’ve decided to roll things like this up into our Spectacu.la WordPress Themes Club as a resource.  Non-members can download and use the pdf, and members get the Word document in case they want to rebrand it.

I guess it won’t be long before WordPress 2.7 turns up, but in the meantime this document represents a significant move ahead of the old.  Revised in many areas, it helps most beginners learn the ropes.  It doesn’t cover things like installation or problem solving, but for the vast majority of users it’s just fine.  We originally wrote it for our own clients, so that they could understand how to manage content on their site.  It’s also designed for printing out – sometimes people prefer it that way, and a website isn’t always the best approach.  At least this way you can choose.

New WordPress User Guide

Please Note – This version of the guide is now obsolete and been superceded by our WordPress 2.6 User Guide which can be downloaded from Spectacu.la

One of the things lacking, in the free downloads world, so far as we could see, was a simple, easy to follow WordPress guide designed for non-techie WordPress users.

There are two versions available – the latest which is for WordPress 2.6, and the previous version for WordPress 2.3 – the latest is only available from our Spectacu.la WordPress Themes Club.

I think the document still needs work, but I would greatly appreciate any feedback, comments, or even offers of assistance. It would be quite nice to GPL this but we haven’t done so yet and I personally am 50/50 about it. What do you think?

If you want to help popularise this guide, please digg it, or add it to your favourite social bookmarking system – it would be much appreciated!
