When I was a (self-hosted) WordPress newbie, I searched the internet high and low for tutorials, plugins, themes and WordPress resources to help me better understand the software and how it can help me build a better blog. There is a lot of information out there so I thought it might be helpful to start keeping an ongoing list of WordPress Resources.
Please note: While have used some of the resources on this page, I have not tested out all the linked tutorials, plugins and resources. YMMV.
