- The Power Of The WordPress Codex (Beginner)
When I first started working with WordPress, our main reference was the WordPress Codex – an online wiki that documents all the functionality of WordPress from the developers of WordPress. These days, you can usually find more readable tutorials by simply searching Google, you should still turn to the Codex for a quick reference on how to use and extend WordPress. As a beginner, you’ll probably be more interested in the glossary and lessons. If you’re a developer, you’ll be more interested in the troubleshooting and theme development sections. Either way, it’s an invaluable resource!
