What this website is all about

It’s about WordPress, the popular website publishing software freely available for everyone to use and modify to fit their own personal and commercial needs. I’ve been using WordPress to build websites for businesses and individuals for five years. With each website, I learn something new and this is my platform for sharing these tips, techniques, template mods and hacks that are my WordPress toolkit.

In addition to posts about using and modifying WordPress themes, you’ll find articles about HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery here, as well as some general articles on strategies for planning, building and launching websites. Some of these articles are recycled from my company website, LarryAronson.com and have been re-edited to fit the style and purpose of this blog.

What you can do

You can learn something interesting and/or useful and make me happy. This probably won’t happen unless you already know something about WordPress. As a guide, each post has a Skill level assigned to it as follows:

 Skill Level Knowledge Required Privilege Needed
 General  Using the Web  none
 Beginner  Some HTML and CSS  author or better
 Intermediate  HTML, CSS, JavaScript, WP fundamentals  admin
 Advanced  HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, WP internals  root

General level posts cover stuff you can understand with just basic knowledge of the Web and what blogging is all about. Beginner material covers techniques you can use as a WordPress author or editor whereas intermediate level assumes knowledge of the WordPress Dashboard and admin functions. Advanced posts are for Webmasters and designers and assume that you have the privileges and knowledge to manage files on a web server and understand WordPress theme structure and configuration settings.

Contribute — That’s the other thing you can do that will make me happy. Please leave your comments, corrections, suggestions and gripes on these pages and posts. Send me an email if you are interested in guest blogging. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
