Catch the WP Guru Podcast where Complex Stuff is made extremely simple. I'm Jay Versluis, and I like to help humans get the most out of their machines and cloud services - and sometimes that's not easy. Here are some screencasts that explain how many aspects of the tech jungle work. I will discuss a variety of topics, such as WordPress, Plesk, Web Hosting, iOS Development and a lot of other super complicated stuff.
|1||CleanVideoWordPress Screencast, Part 10: Users, Roles and Capabilities||In this video I’ll show you the multi-user capabilities of WordPress: how to create new users, and what capabilities the different user roles have over your WordPress site.

|2||CleanVideoWordPress Screencast, Part 9: URLs and Permalinks||In this screencast I’ll explain how you can change the URLs for your posts and pages, as they appear in your web browser.

|3||CleanVideoWordPress Screencast, Part 8: Mysteries of the MORE Tag||In this video I’ll show you how the MORE tag works. It’s a “break mark” you can use so that longer posts don’t take up too much space on your front page.

|6||CleanVideoWordPress Screencast, Part 5: Images||In this video I’ll show you how image uploads work in WordPress, and how to embed images into your posts and pages.

|7||CleanVideoWordPress Screencast, Part 4: Widgets and Sidebars||In this video I’ll show you how to use widgets. They usually materialise in a sidebar, but some themes have widgetized areas elsewhere, such as the bottom or the top. I will also show you how to remove unwanted widgets.||8/17/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
|8||CleanVideoWordPress Screencast, Part 3: Custom Menus||In this video I will show you how to use custom menus in WordPress.
