  24. Ok that’s very good. I knows only The WordPress Theme system is a way to “skin” your weblog. Yet, it is more than just a “skin.” Skinning your site implies that only the design is changed. WordPress Themes can provide much more control over the look and presentation of the material on your website.I am very new to WordPress and have just started to use it for my design projects. At the moment I am just using it for news feeds but I will be using it more and more in the coming months. This is why I am spending time looking at tutorials like this one so it can give me an insight and guide to how I can create certain things in WordPress. I thought this tutorial had great detail and great comments to go along with it. This is a tutorial I will be spending time going through and will be a great help in me understanding what WordPress can do for me. Tips for Maintenance 1) Backup your database and your files. You can use a number of plugins (Backup buddy is a good one) to do this, or if you trust your hosting company, there is often a file and database backup utility within your cpanel.2) Update plugins. This one is easy. Go to your plugins and look for any that need to be updated. All you need to do is click the update button and you
