This page is specifically for guidance with client’s websites, there are videos of how to make changes, modifications and updates. Some will only be relevant to individual sites and themes so please choose carefully. They are mostly hosted on Youtube and there are various options for screen quality, most have my terrible monotone voice over them so consider yourself warned!
Worth noting is that WordPress and your themes have regular updates (which is good) and as such the look and feel of the WordPress Dashboard and the theme interface has a habit of changing, most of the time you won’t notice and items can move location but the core is always the same. If there is a major change I will outline it below or re-record the video.
