Need help getting started? Find basic WordPress instructions on the LRT documentation available on this website.

Not enough? The WordPress Codex has even more instructions.

Want to hear from a human? Attend a Center for Media Production student-led WordPress training.

Stuck on something strange? Google it! When you google a question, like “how to add a custom header in WordPress TwentyTwelve,” make sure to include the theme you are using (in this case, TwentyTwelve). Tutorials can be theme-specific.

Finding Free-to-Use Images

If you can find an image that you like and you know for sure is free to use – that is always the best way to go. Some suggestions for finding these:

Embedding Videos

Embed Streaming Video. You can automatically embed videos from YouTube, Vimeo, and many other sources just by posting the link. Find instructions for embedding with a link here.

Working with Your Own Videos. If you’d like to embed your own video in a page on this blog, upload it to YouTube, Vimeo, or another service first.
