When i first upgraded to 2.7 i was like, ” WoW, a whole lot have changed to the dashboard…”. Hope later in the future they are more ” screen options”.
This was really helpful. Thank you!
Wasn’t sure about WordPress at first but after a quick review of the “well documented” support information, felt confortable almost immideately. Thanks!
Thank’s WordPress.tv, I’m really thankfull for all that you post!

Love the dashboard, but it had not occured to me that I could move things around. Glad I watched this. Thanks.
Because I was seeking a video to introduce the dashboard basics to new users, this video does not suffice. This is more appropriate to WordPress users who already know the dashboard. Perhaps “WordPress – Introduction to Dashboard Customization” is the better title?
I would LOVE to see some beginner or basic videos for WordPress? Its a great program but its very confusing for a new user.
They have plenty of videos here. It’s just that they are not all in one place. Go to Support at http://en.support.wordpress.com/ and click on some of the Topics to find them. If you have a question about WordPress.com let me know and I can try to help you out.
Yes indeed there are a lot of great videos! I just wish they were organized better, like starting with the basics, and going forward from there.
But this is a great start, I am saving the ones that I want to review.
I definitely like your idea here and we’ll have to see what we can do in the future in terms of a guided experience to getting started.
Good for you! If you need help finding something, just post it here and I will help you if I can. Blogging with WordPress.com is so much fun.
Check out any of the Lynda.com training videos, they all start from the most basic and go forward to the more difficult things.
Its really easy to navigate thru their videos. Beginning at the top, and as you progress down thru the links, its more advanced.
The site is free for some of the basics, but to get all of them or see the whole thing, its a paying site.
I sure learned a lot from them!
They cover many softwares, but yours only is for one, so start at the basics and have the links go up from there, not to have them scattered all about.
I am setting up a web page/blog using Ocean Mist template. I’ve set up some pages, a static Home page, About, Contact, and Blog. I don’t know why the site doesn’t show up in color so I can view how it looks so far and what I want to do next. It’s a little confusing. I can view the dashboard and all of the settings. What is next? Looking for help…thanks.
I took a look at your site briefly and everything appears to be OK. If you are still experiencing trouble, please contact our support team at http://support.wordpress.com/.
Ryan, thanks. I still have issues.The site shows up on IE, but not Firefox. So far I cannot find the solution. I followed instructions to clear out the cache and cookies in Firefox tools. Still, the Ocean Mist template/colors and my custom header photo do not show up for me in Firefox. Terribly frustrating. Should I be contacting support at a different address? Thank you, appreciate your help.
Yes; please check with Support at support.wordpress.com.
