What I Wish I Knew When I Started Using WordPress

  1. Ask real people questions. If you know someone who’s a bit of a WordPress fanatic, pick their brain. Google can only get you so far and half the time, the question you’re asking has too many answers or means something other than what you’re asking.
  2. Spend time figuring out the basics. Themes require few basic files to work, and the adding the right details to the top of the CSS file is pretty important.
  3. If you’re getting started and on a time crunch: Advanced Custom Fields.
  4. Utilize your network.
  5. Start with a framework like _s (Underscores).
  6. Realize you’re only at the beginning and there’s so much more than the tip of the iceberg.
