In the last few years the powerful open source WordPress software has become very popular, not just for basic blogs but for full blown web environments. This has been made possible to a large part by the extensibility provided by the WordPress Plugin API interface.

How To Create A Website or Blog Using WordPress

http://pcmichiana.com/how-to-create-a-website-or-blog-using-wordpress/

This video shows how to create or edit WordPress pages, posts and widgets using the standard dashboard included with the WordPress software. For those who haven’t been following this video series so far, we have been going over how to create our own website or blog using the popular WordPress software package.

WordPress has been around for quite some time now and specializes in creating incredibly powerful websites with very little time or programming knowledge. This offers a great opportunity for individuals who are looking to learn how to build their own professional looking and working website.

This particular video covers pages, which are essentially what everyone is used to seeing on a website. Pages simply show up in the top of the navigation bar, and compromise links such as “About Us” or “Contact Us” – it also usually contains the main topics of the page so people can visit different areas of the site.

Posts are content that show up underneath certain categories of a website. These may be blog posts or images shared with people who regularly visit the site, but aren’t necessarily important enough to show up in the navigation. Downloads are also a very popular topic to create posts with.

Lastly are widgets, and widgets are used in WordPress to modify the overall theme’s layout. While widgets are extremely powerful, it is important to realize that many of the themes you will download and install will have completely different widget layouts. The only real way to get good with widgets is to select a theme and start playing with them.

On with the show!

131 Text to Hyperlink Filter Example (Video) – ‘How to Write a WordPress Plugin’ Series

0 131 Text to Hyperlink Filter Example (Video)   How to Write a WordPress Plugin Serieshttp://kingsolutions.org.uk/wordpress/wordpress/how-to-write-a-wp-plugin/

Welcome to this tutorial series from King Solutions on How to Write a WordPress Plugin.

In this series we’ll take a look at exactly what it takes to build plugins for WordPress.

In this lesson we’ll continue the hooks, actions and filters topic with simple demonstration filter. This continues the previous lessons where we introduced plugins, built a basic plugin template and created a plugin class.

The task for this lesson is to search all your posts and convert specified keywords to hyperlinks? How long do you think this would take you? If you have more than just a few pages, quite a long time I would imagine. The good news, this is an ideal task for a filter. The even better news, the method we’ll employ changes the text as it is displayed (on-the-fly) so the underlying data is not modified.

So, in this demonstration we will write a text to hyperlink filter which will search all posts for the stipulated keywords and convert those keywords to hyperlinks.

In the last few years the powerful open source WordPress software has become very popular, not just for basic blogs but for full blown web environments. This has been made possible to a large part by the extensibility provided by the WordPress Plugin API interface.

How To Download, Install and Activate Free WordPress Themes

0 How To Download, Install and Activate Free Wordpress ThemesThis video is brought to you by: http://pcmichiana.com

This video covers one of the most important topics related to the WordPress website and blog development software. WordPress is one of the most powerful and popular web development software packages because it allow users to completely customize the look and feel of their website with little to no understanding of actual programming code.

Themes are basically website or blog layouts that have been designed by third party companies that they give away for free. Many of you may wonder why they do this. The primary reason is many of them actually post a backlink to their website in the footer of the theme, which improves their overall search rankings and offers free promotion of their website. The second reason many of them do it is simply free promotion, and they offer a free theme with limited functionality so people who really fall in love with one of their themes can purchase a license to the full version with more features.

In either case, knowing why WordPress themes are free doesn’t really make any difference if you don’t know how to download, install and activate a free WordPress theme. There are basically two ways a WordPress developer can do this. First, they can go through the theme installation tab right in the WordPress installation directory and upload the theme directly. The second, and faster method, is to drop all of the themes directly in the WordPress theme folder on your server.

Since we installed the server ourselves in a previous video, this video will show you how to perform both methods.

How To Create A Website or Blog Using WordPress

0 How To Create A Website or Blog Using WordpressThis video is brought to you by: http://www.pcmichiana.com

Prerequisite for this video: http://pcmichiana.com/how-to-turn-a-computer-into-a-web-server-to-build-websites/

Today’s video will illustrate a very clear example of how to build your own website or blog using the WordPress web development suite. WordPress is a completely free package and developing your own website doesn’t require you to drop a dime of your own money.

Many people still think creating a personal website or blog is an extremely complicated or expensive task, but this simply isn’t the case anymore! WordPress has become one of the most popular website building software packages because it actually allows individuals of all backgrounds the opportunity to create extremely powerful and complex websites without ever even writing a line of code.

Web programming has been automated by the WordPress software to the point of being able to use simple text editors, upload buttons and other fantastically simple methods for rendering even the most complex websites.

I will show you in later videos, you can even utilize the plug-in feature of WordPress to completely optimize your website for search engines, without even writing a line of code! Of course, you need to make sure you spend the right amount of time choosing keywords and such, but it is hardly backbreaking work that no one can do, it’s just busywork.

Anyways, I digress.
