WordPress Help

One of our many tools that we use is WordPress. Now WordPress is more than just a blog tool, it can be used in a Flipped Classroom model too. It also doesn't need to be a one way communication with students, it could be used to continue classroom discussions online or communicate classroom activities with parents. Anyway you use it, it is still technology and as we all know technology can break and ruin our day. Information I gather about what people are looking for in WordPress or issues that come up I will post here to try and create a solution base. Should you encounter an issue with your WordPress site please comment or email me.
