WordPress help

The following videos will give you a quick guide to some of the basic functions of your Learning blogs. You might like to watch them to get an idea of how your site will work, how to post, how to add images and change themes. But the best piece of advice we can give you is to play! You won’t break your site, so get started by playing with the different options.

    Hi IFN612 team,

    My site has completely gone down. From the error message, there appears to be something wrong with the zerif theme coding. @admin is there anything you can do from the back end or is it time for a new site?

      Hi Steve,
      I was getting the same thing. Must be everyone trying to submit at the last minute! Not to worry. You’ll be fine.
