A New WordPress, A New Guide, A New Site

Oh hai there! Welcome to the new Easy WP Guide. If you’ve been here before I’m sure the first thing you’ve noticed is the brand-spanking-new website!

A New Site

As much as I loved the old site, it was starting to get a bit tired and dated. It was time for a change! You should find this new site much cleaner and easier to navigate, especially if you’re browsing on your phone or tablet.

I’ve been hard at work over the past few months putting together the new site in addition to updating the guide for WordPress 4.0 which was released recently. Have you updated your site yet? If not, why not?? It’s always a good idea to make sure you’re running the latest version of WordPress. The same goes with your themes and plugins. …Continue reading

A Handy Guide for Publishing With WordPress

A Handy Guide for Publishing With WordPress

Late last year I wrote a post about a great guide that I was referred to for setting up WordPress on Amazon Web Services. The guide was written by Jeff Reifman, who’s an extremely talented technology consultant living in Seattle, Washington. He’s a longtime ex-Microsoft Group Program Manager, freelance writer and activist.

Well, Jeff’s written up another handy guide that I’m sure more than a few of you will be interested in. It’s called Publishing with WordPress and in it, Jeff steps you through all the important (& sometimes technical) steps in actually getting your WordPress site online and managing it once it is. He even talks about some of the various ways in which you can earn money from your site (I’m making sure I read that section myself!). …Continue reading

Helpful WordPress Resources

Helpful WordPress Resources

I get a lot of emails asking for advice on which plugins or themes to use, or which hosting service is best. There’s a huge number of hosting services out there, some better than others, and at times it can be hard to distinguish between them before signing up. When it comes to themes and plugins, it’s even harder because there’s even more to choose from. With over 30,000 plugins in the official Plugin Directory, and over 2,500 themes in the Themes Directory, it can make for even more difficulties. And that’s not taking into account the thousands of theme and plugin shops that are all over the web.

So, to try and help you with this task, I thought I’d share with you some of the more common plugins, themes and services that I use on a regular basis, both on my own sites and when I’m building client sites. …Continue reading
