WordPress Website Tips

When creating or operating a WordPress website there’s much to learn and remember. Then, about the time we think we have a reasonable understanding, WordPress releases new updates, resulting in even more to learn.

I’ve heard the phrase, WordPress is really just a pretty face on a database. WordPress stores each bit of content in the database and makes it relatively easy to retrieve all the bits and pieces using PHP to display in a variety of ways using html and css.
