Most of the websites I have worked on over the last couple years have been built using WordPress, one of the best Content Management Systems available. It is extremely flexible and powerful, with great tools for Search Engine Optimization already built in.
For a new user, however, it can be a little overwhelming once they log in for the first time. The WordPress backend is a little bit heavy and offers so many tools that it can be confusing for those new to the system.
At first I was spending a lot of time on the phone talking clients through the same basic issues over and over. How do I add a new post? How do I create a new category? While these were new issues for them, I had to repeat myself over and over. So I put together a document that provides basic instructions for using WordPress and I have been providing clients with a .pdf version to help guide them through their new site.
Now I am making it available through DocStoc. Feel free to share it, embed it, pass it on, whatever you want.
Keep an eye out for my next one, a .pdf version of my Optimizing WordPress post.
