Last month we issued a call for writers to join our team. We received such an overwhelming response to last month’s call for writers, that unfortunately we were unable to reply to each applicant. We have now made our choices and are delighted to welcome these new writers to our team.
To the rest, don’t despair, we had to pass over many excellent applicants simply because we had so many to choose from. We will issue another call in the future so please apply again at that time.

New to WordPress and have no clue where to start from? Wouldn’t it be good if WordPress shipped with a user manual? While there is no official user manual apart from the extensive documentation (which might not be so suitable for beginners), there have been some great efforts at producing such beginners user guides. Here are the best we’ve come across.
