Learning How to Use WordPress

Learning Wordpress for beginners and for those who have not really used it much.

Brief Intro

Wordpress is Content Management System (CMS). If you have not heard this term before it just means that it is a System for Managing Content which, you manually put into the system and can update, delete or add new entries to by using the Administration Panel (Admin Panel) to upload pictures or type in new information for new or already saved Website pages. It appears daunting at first but becomes your best friend after a few tries and you become more confident that you are not destroying or changing anything in the system. I taught it to my Father in a few minutes by showing him and he is 83 years old.

Wordpress, definitions

WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. > From Wordpress.org

WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content-management system based on PHP and MySQL, which runs on a web hosting service. Features include a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by more than 18.9% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013. > From Wikipedia

Do not worry: PHP and MySQL are not part of this tutorial, they are merely programming structures.
