The True Power of Twitter – Marketing Essentials

The best way to be successful on Twitter isn’t by posting, it’s by listening. You should spend as much time as possible in Twitter search, helping people out.
BUT, don’t try to sell to them, just try to be helpful. Search keywords in your niche and reach out to people with useful and helpful information.

The Editor Tab: The Sidebar and Footer Sheets

The last two sheets that you should know about are the sidebar.php and the footer.php. I don’t have much to add to these sheets since my theme allows for a fair amount of customization without playing around in the code and for the sidebar, since widgets are very flexible. That being said, you should still…

The Editor Tab: The Single Post

The next sheet we will look into is the “single post” sheet. The name can vary based on the theme, but the actual name will be “single.php”. In this sheet you will see the layout for every post (not page) on your site. Depending on your theme there will probably be code in here already,…

Appearance: The Widget Tab

The next tab that we will cover is the Widget Tab. I really love the flexibility of widgets. Much like menus that we spoke about in our last post widgets are totally customizable. There is a plugin that you can download that will allow you to make as many sidebars as you want, then you…

Appearance: The Customize Tab

The next tab inside Appearance that we will explore is the Customize tab. Clicking on the customize tab will take you out of your dashboard and you will be shown your site with the customization sidebar.  The top option is the Site Identity. This tab has the site title and tagline which we already discussed…

WordPress Settings: Permalink Settings

The next setting we will look at is Permalink Settings. Before we talk about permalinks I will give you a strong word of caution. If you have a lot of posts already created, sites linking to your site, or you rank on search engines then I highly recommend that you do not change anything on…

WordPress Settings: Reading and Media Tabs

  The next section of the Settings tab is the Reading Settings. This is a really important tab, it tells WordPress which page you want to be your home page and your blog page. By default WordPress creates a page with the last 10 posts on it. You can create a Home Page in the…
