Part 1 in a series of 2 video tutorials.. an introduction to the WordPress WYSIWYG Content Editor Toolbar. The tools are pretty much self explanatory but not all minds think and operate alike. This video introduction to the WordPress WYSIWYG content editor covers the first row of tools and introduces the kitchen sink button which opens a second row to the editor / toolbar.
I hope this WordPress video tutorial isn’t too dry. If you have comments or questions, please post them below.

The Widgets panel is located under the “Appearance Tab” in your WordPress site Dashboard. Widgets make it easy to control the layout of your sidebars without having to know any code. To learn how to use WordPress Widgets please check out this short little video I created to demonstrate using WordPress Widgets.

I was asked recently on how to make rollover or hover text appear when you run your cursor over a hypertext link . The answer to this is quite simple, the title tag.
To create a link with a title tag in your WordPress page or post;
- highlight the text you want to link.
- click the the chain link in the first row of the visual editor.
A window will open where there are a couple of fields and a couple of drop menus.
- insert the desired link into the link field
- insert your search engine optimized hover text into the title field.
- and if you want the link to open in a new window, just check the box.
The title tag also works in the img tag as well. Some think the ALT tag of the old days is what controls hover text on an image but that really only pertains to Microsoft IE. If you notice in the image upload interface there are fields for both ALT & TITLE. You should always fill these 2 fields in for SEO reasons.
