11 WordPress One Minute Podcasts

February 8, 2010 | No Comments Yet

Tris Hussey has compiled all the episodes of his show, the WordPress One Minute Podcast, in one page. It’s perfect for WordPress users who are just starting out, covering some of the most popular tips in blogging with the platform. The current list so far:

  • Ep 1: Pasting from Word
  • Ep 2: Disable the default admin account
  • Ep 3: Turbo-charge admin panels
  • Ep 4: WP.com vs WP.org
  • Ep 5: Press this bookmarklet
  • Ep 6: Sidebar widgets
  • Ep 7: CPanel file manager
  • Ep 8: Pretty Permalinks
  • Ep 9: Upgrading plugins
  • Ep 10: WP to Twitter
  • Ep 11: All In One SEO Pack

From dealing with Word-formatted text to acquainting onself with the All in One SEO Pack, consider the list a virtual pocket guide for WP, if not for you then for a friend or loved one who just got into ‘Pressing. It’s an interesting take on the podcast format, which normally contains several different topics and long-winded discussions on each.

It’s also worth noting that Tris is currently writing the book Using WordPress, so keep your eyes peeled for developments on that.
