Get the Most from WordPress.com


You’ve got a blog: huzzah! Now, it’s time to make it the next internet sensation. Whether you want to be a WordPress.com pro or just need to get the hang of the basics, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got you covered from sign up to custom design to publishing your first post — and then some.

To go from gumshoe to guru, make your way through the tutorials section by section. If you need help with a specific task, menus at the top of each page let you know what you’ll learn there so you can hop right to the topic you need. Jam-packed full of screenshots to help you get oriented, each section is designed to help you find the information you’re looking for quickly, absorb it immediately, and apply your new-found prowess to your site or blog.

A few stand-alone sections get you up to speed even faster:

  • Get Going Fast — A Checklist: A Quick-Start Guide to get you right to the info you need, stat, or to use as a checklist to make sure you’re covering everything you need for your site or blog.
  • Get a Home Page: The nuts and bolts on using WordPress to build a website — create a home page, custom navigation, and much, much more.
  • Get Lingo: Stymied by all the new terms? We’ll demystify any words you’re not sure about in this handy glossary.

If you want more detail on any of the topics covered here, head over to WordPress.com Support, home of helpful documentation for every WordPress.com question you can think of (and some you can’t).
