Does anyone know where I can get a good PLR report to give to my website customers that walks them through simple wordpress basics??

    I don't have any, but would like to add my vote for this request. The only PLR I can find is hopelessly out of date

    Any PLR manuals or videos for Wordpress versions 2.5 to 2.92 would be appreciated.

    And of course, the OP would like latest 3.+ versions

    Best regards,
    Jan Gregory

    Why not create your own? There is tons of material all over the internet. If not a report then create a "Hotsheet".

    or you can go here A Beginner's Guide to WordPress Basics

    In your own words write what you've read and what you know from experience.

    Peace and Success to you

    You can also try those Flash based tutorials/videos for WordPress that most people get through WebHost companies and use it for your own business.

      I am using this for all my clients, who don't want to buy monthly website maintenance package from us: Sign Up for WordPress 101 Tutorial Videos
      It will cost you $19, but that's one-off payment. You can even use it for yourself

      If you just want your clients to post new blogs, or simply update content on inner pages, I would simply recod a couple of short videos using Jing (free screen recording software - you can recod videos up to 5 mins length).

      Hope this will help

    The problem with WordPress and instruction manuals is that they update so often that detailed instructions are hard to come by. At least ones which are in date. Live help is often the answer.

      is why this looks so tempting to buy. Thank You!

      Dominica do you happen to know if WP101 has Wordpress 3.2 videos?
      I was only seeing 3.3 samples (I hate 3.3's new javascript tabs in left-sidebar).

        They update videos on a regular basis... whih is good, but when the new version of Worpress cames up, they update/change the old ones

    Rather than "train" WP 3, using the menu options and plugins like "adminimize" I actually try to idiot-proof the interface as much as possible before turning it over to a client.

      So what do you actually do to idiot-proof the interface?

      Thank you to all the posters with links to training. And Mr Barnhart has contributed the best idea for me at least. Remove all the clutter.

      The link to the plugin he referred to is WordPress › Adminimize « WordPress Plugins

      Any more plugins or advice on removing clutter and simplifying the admin panel for clients?

      Best Regards,
