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?

    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.

    I think most people who visit your article have really little knowledge about WordPress related Facebook groups. And I’m one of them. I’m glad I’ve seen this post, thanks for the link.

      Thanks Shalu! It seems to be going well and I hope to introduce some pretty cool activities that will only be available to the members of All About WordPress.

      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.

    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.

    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.

      Thanks Jeremy! I missed speaking at WordCamp Louisville 2012, was at 2011’s event as a speaker. WordPress is 100%. You are welcome to join the community… we have a few active people that are big players in the WordPress community and always welcome questions, thoughts, and even love to see people participate and share their WordPress related articles.

    Hi Nile,

    great idea, creating a group for WordPress questions.

    I see it has quite a few contributors, so it will have a great variety.

    Thank you for taking the initiative in creating this!

    Cheers,
    Yorinda
