Adding Beautiful Photo Galleries

Going beyond inserting a single image into the articles you publish on your website, you can also insert beautiful photo galleries and arrange those in a variety of ways.

You can even no so far as to display all your images as circles.  It only takes a few clicks and you’re not stuck with the results either. As I demonstrate in the video, once you create a gallery you can easily change the format to make your article just perfect.

The official documentation has some great examples and screenshots of the different gallery types!  I encourage you to check it out here!

 

 

How To Login To Your WordPress Site

Yes, it’s a basic and crucial step and I try to not belabor the point.

but if you’ve lost the link or this is the first time you’re wanting to do some wordpress training, this tutorial is all about logging in but I do share a cool tip with you about the WordPress administrator dashboard to make it all with the trip.

The login link should be:

ex. “yoursite.com/wp-login”.  

But here’s a nother tip.  After I login and click the “remember me” button.  I often just type in the word “dashboard” after my site name.

ex. “yoursite.com/dashboard”

Yea… it’ll do that.

 

Custom YouTube Channel URL Set-Up

This is a quick screencast that demonstrates how you can go in and and set-up your YouTube Channel’s Custom URL so you can start to market you Channel a bit more professionally.  With all the changes to the YouTube interface it can be hard to find some of the core settings.  I’m not complaining!  I really think they’ve made the youtube administrative interface a lot better for creators, digging down to those core and coordinating your channel setup with your google plus page can be a little confusing to set up when you’re first getting off the ground.

I was completing set up for one of my demo gaming sites, GamesXAnime.com and since you can only go through that process once I decided to doucment it so others could more easily find that essential setting.

The official YouTube documentation can be find here.
