I’m a huge WordPress fan. If I’m building a website it’s usually the first thing that I stick on the webspace, the power of the CMS features in WordPress’ means that it’s my programming choice.
However, despite all it’s brilliance, it does have one fault, the WordPress Official Support forum is terrible. Questions get unanswered, and moderators work behind the scenes, so even if there is a problem, you’re not sure where to go.
“This is probably the most popular blogging service but without technical help it can cause a few tears (or was that just me?). “
There are places to look though. Here’s three places I look.
I’m a huge fan of the Sitepoint Forums, although they’re not specifically about WordPress, they do have great CSS & PHP forums. There is also a WordPress subforum which is far more useful than the parent “Blogging” forum, who’s posts are all “how to make money blogging?”. It’s not great for plugin support, or more specialised WordPress help, but for general PHP & CSS help, it’s great.
One forum that pops up time & again for specialist queries is WordPress Tavern, which seems to be a community of developers with in depth knowledge of WordPress. Seems to me that the discussions are a lot more specialised than both on the Sitepoint forums & the official forums.
These are the solutions I use, how about you? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
