Organize Posts with Categories

Categories are a great way to organize your posts.  To help your visitors find groups of content (without relying on keyword searches) categories are just the thing.  In this video we show how to create make curated lists of posts that visitors can access on a page or menu item.

Securing WordPress Content with Passwords

It’s easy to protect a post or page with a password in WordPress.  It’s harder to protect uploaded media files.  Many people fall into a trap where they protect a page full of links to PDFs, not realizing that the PDFs are freely available to people without a password.  In this video we explain the issue and use the Download Monitor plugin to solve it.

WordPress SEO 101

The best, fastest, most beautiful web site in the world is worth nothing if the world can’t find it.  “SEO” is the art of convincing search engines to send people your way.  In this video we show how to use a WordPress plugin to add some “google juice” to your site, and do it without spending hours updating your site.

Anatomy of a WordPress Page

When you view a page on a WordPress site in your browser, it is constructed of many dynamic parts.  WordPress assembles all these pieces behind the scenes on the web server and shows you the finished product: a beautiful web page.  In this video, we show all the parts that make up a page and where to go in the WordPress dashboard to change each one of them.

The transition to the new “block editor” in WordPress 5 can be jarring.  In this video we show how to quickly re-install the classic editor if you need to Get Stuff Done Right Now!

Tennis / Chess Club Fund Raiser This Saturday!

This was a test post used in the making of our Gutenberg 101 video.

The combined Tennis and Chess club fund raiser is this Saturday, April 23rd. The presidents of both clubs have announced the following fundraising activities:

  • Car Wash
    • Bake Sale
    • Lemonade Stand
    • T-Shirt Sale

Your Support Helps!

The Tennis club is involved in many events throughout the year.  This funding supports travel, team uniforms, practice and tournament equipment, and the occasional celebratory pizza party. Last year our very own Sally Smith made it to the state finals, and this year we plan to do even better!

The Chess club hosts a school tournament on the 2nd Saturday of each month.  The club also travels to district and regional tournaments around our city and state.  The fundraising proceeds help pay for travel, equipment, and team T-shirts.   The club significantly improved tournament results after providing practice sets for all the team members to take home.
