User Management

I’m often asked to add, remove or change users on my clients’ WordPress sites. But it’s actually really easy to do this yourself.

We also look at deleting and editing users, and re-visit the password reset process.

What’s new in WordPress 4.8

WordPress 4.8 contains lots of “behind the scenes” stuff that you probably won’t notice.  But these changes will make your website editing easier, either now or in the future. However, on the surface there’s not so much to see.  This “what’s new” video is only three minutes and shows you just two main new features.  Enjoy!

WordPress Loops and Queries – A guide for developers

This video is a screencast for WordPress developers describing the different types of WordPress loops and queries:

  • WP_Query
  • query_posts
  • get_posts

I outline the different uses, show code examples, explain the pros and cons and so on.

 

Confession: this was a bit of an excuse to try out some recording kit and to try doing a more in-depth screencast tutorial. It’s a bit long and rambling (despite editing) and far from perfect, but isn’t so bad for a first go at this kind of thing. Do let me know what you think!

What’s new in WordPress 4.3

This is LONG overdue, but WordPress version 4.5 is now on the horizon, so it’s time I did my update tutorials for WordPress 4.3 and 4.4.  The first of these tells you what’s new in WordPress 4.3.  There’s some really useful tips and tricks for both content editors and site administrators.
