WordPress forums are a great way to find the help you need for your WP website. As support forums go, the WordPress forums are probably the most robust out there with the exception for StackExchange which has a WordPress extension. This is why WordPress is one of the most popular CMS platforms out there. The support of the community is what helps users from beginner to advanced go further faster in their development and content creation.
WordPress has many forums on a variety of topics. Since our company, CloverPressCMS is geared towards the small business owner, we recommend taking a look at the Getting Started section of the WordPress support page.
If you’re using plugins on your website, which most WordPress sites use at least 4 or 5 if not more, then the support forums are a great place to better understand and get the most of your plugins. In fact, plugins are the hottest topics on the support forums.
Getting involved in the WP support forums can lead to connecting with some great developers that may be able to help you on a one-on-one basis. Even the most advanced developer can find other developers who can help troubleshoot an issue or find a solution. In some cases, just talking it out can help self-resolve an issue.
Forums can also save you time and money. After all, the forums are free by signing up for a WordPress account. As a small business owner or a if you’re a small marketing team, we know your time is valuable. Having access to forums where you can post a question and receive replies right to your email is a great way to stay efficient.
The power of WordPress is the community. Take advantage of the forums and help yourself. As always, if you have questions, please feel free to get in touch.
