These videos are fairly old now but some of them still have parts that are relevant today.
Installing plugins and configuring your settings really isn’t any different and how you create a post or page is still pretty much the same.
There are, of course, parts that are very not relevant, when these were made there was no “block editor” in WordPress.
There are also some things I would do differently now, for example, some of the plugins are no longer active, or I’ve found ones I like better, and I’ve made do with less.
But the basics of setting up a blog are still pretty much the same.
These videos are designed to walk you through how to do various things using WordPress. If you would rather watch them on Youtube then you can go directly to my WordPress How To channel
