Dartmouth WordPress is intended to be a self-service website tool, so training and personalized help is very limited.

General Questions about Dartmouth WordPress
Please contact the Dartmouth WordPress team. We can help you determine whether Dartmouth WordPress is the right tool for your needs, but cannot provide one-on-one support on specific functions of the tool (“How do I use x plugin?”, etc.)
Lynda.com has some excellent WordPress resources [login with your Dartmouth NetID]. The “WordPress Essential Training” course is a good introduction to WordPress; start on section 3, “Starting WordPress for the First Time.”
Please be aware that many of the courses discuss installation, creating custom themes, and other functionality that is not supported by the installation of WordPress hosted at Dartmouth.
WordPress Support Documentation
WordPress.com provides a plethora of knowledge in their support section. As with the Lynda.com courses, not all the functionality discussed on WordPress.com is available on Dartmouth’s hosted WordPress.
