Webmasters ' Corner

This section is meant to assist trained webmasters with basic configuration info. As WordPress offers a wide range of possibilities, a large part of learning is done by searching the web for specific support tips, discussing with peers and experimenting by yourself (in draft mode of course). However for a good start, basic training is required and job-aids / Q&A are also valuable as sometimes we may be a while without performing certain configurations.  This section is a work in progress and will be built based on folks questions and findings.
