WordPress Tips for the Bewildered
I’m starting this page because I just started to use WordPress and once you learn something “obvious,” it becomes more difficult to explain. Most of my math teachers had this problem. “See? See?,” they asked, pointing at an equation. Well, no, I didn’t. That was why I was in a math class rather than joyfully outside, playing with a stick. And because what was complicated for me had become obvious to them, they could no longer see through my eyes.
