How to find Help

Help is always nearby

As long as you are logged in to your website, you can always click the “Help” tab at the top right corner of your screen. This tab has the information you need, depending on which page you are on and what you’re trying to do. Very useful!

If you don’t find what you are looking for, simply click the link for “Support Forums” in the bottom right corner of the Help tab window and you will be taken to WordPress’ Support Forums where you can type in a question or search phrase.

Then there’s also the WordPress FAQ directory where you can find answers to many starter questions.
