New Facebook Group For WordPress Users – All About WordPress

I get tons of questions on a daily basis on Facebook regarding WordPress. Of course, there are a lot of groups on Facebook that are WordPress-related, but frankly, a lot of questions fall through the cracks, and some of the people I have run into just really have little knowledge about anything.

I am no elitist, but with millions of WordPress powered sites out on the Internet, there is a need for answering questions all about WordPress.

So, to direct people to asking their questions publicly, I have created a new Facebook group called All About WordPress. The group WILL have activities tied to Blondish.net and there will be a #WordPressWednesday issue started where I will share questions recently covered, and a little WordPress mashup.

If you use WordPress, design with WordPress, or develop with WordPress, please come on in. I have already started a Quick Reference document for anyone that may have a question that has been answered, or if they wish to jump into a discussion. There is also a document to list your WordPress site. One other document is topics you would like me to cover here on Blondish.net.

Again, please feel free to come over and join the Facebook group All About WordPress.

What other WordPress related groups are you a part of? What WordPress topics have you been wanting to hear about on Blondish.net?


This is where YARRP will go

  5. What an excellent resource, Nile! I find the WordPress help facility useful, but often it gets into too much detail and can be hard to follow.

    I also enjoy Terry Anglin’s sessions “WordPress/Blogging from the ground up” every Tuesday evening which you can access from http://alanjenkin.gvoacademy.com/#schedule. He is very patient in answering questions at all levels, from installing WordPress to the settings for the most useful plugins.

    Thanks for forming this group – I’m looking forward to following it.

  13. Hi Nile,
    I know of another blogger that did something similar on Facebook. He deals basically with blog theme design and I had a question about tweaks with my theme.

    He answered my questions the same day.

    • Yes, I do that often, but I needed something more focused since it seemed to be a very common thing. I answer in many different places, but Facebook, I end up being contacted with a lot of questions…sometimes by the same people. This will at least give it that community feel so others can respond as well.

  14. Great Information………Keep It Up…….!!!!

  17. You have said it right. We use wordpress but we don’t know much about it. Most of the times the people claiming to be seemingly all knowing don’t really know much. I for sure will definitely head out to clear my doubts in this all about wordpress group. Thanks for sharing!

  26. Nile,

    Nice to know there is a resource out there for when we get stuck with WordPress… and there are those times. So much more fun interacting with humans rather than in the WordPress Forum.

    I’m in.

  29. I joined your group the other day :) Yeah I know what your talking about some people don’t really know much in some of those groups…lol. I sent you a PM on Facebook asking if I could link drop one of my comp in WordPress. I will actually be giving away a free WordPress plugin shortly, again. Honestly I would like information on having someone build a custom plugin that would be useful for bloggers. Do you do that type of programming. I will probably need it later on down the road.

    this is great! You are obviously a go-to person with regards WordPress. I realize that as a wellness blogger, there is no way I can keep up with all the features and changes to wordpress.

  39. Hi Nile,

    Yeah WordPress can be a bit difficult to work with for new users who don’t have any technical knowledge. I’ve also had a lot of things I didn’t know how to configure or set up.

    It’s good to have someone to give you directions, especially if you’re a DIY person. I always try to learn new stuff by experimenting with settings but unfortunately because of this I’ve managed to crash my blog a couple of times.

    Now I always create a backup before I try something new.

    Have a great day Nile, take care.

    great idea, creating a group for WordPress questions.

    Thank you for taking the initiative in creating this!
