About WPBeginner

WPBeginner is a WordPress resource site which was founded by Syed Balkhi in July 2009. The main goal of this site is to provide quality tips, tricks, hacks, and other resources for the WordPress community. Because most other WordPress sites are maintained by developers, there was a lack of focus on beginners. Here at WPBeginner, we try to explain each tutorial thoroughly, so users of all levels can understand it.

We answer any WordPress questions that beginners may have via social media networks, and emails. WPBeginner is a community based site therefore most articles are requested by our users. If you do not find something on our site, use the Suggestion form and write to us. We would be happy to cover the subject for you. If you are interested in contributing to the community, then we welcome you to write for us.

There is a misconception that WordPress is only for blogs. WordPress is a publishing platform which can function as a robust CMS as well. Another goal of this site is to attract other users to get started with WordPress. If you are not convinced that WordPress is the best solution for you, then you must check out our article: why you should use WordPress.
