Let us know of tutorials that really helped you with your WordPress sites.

This one is very comprehensive and ideal for someone who has not done a Website before. It teaches you step by step how to create a domain and how to work with WordPress, download themes and plugins, and create a fully featured Website including how to use free image manipulating sites, some that I haven't worked with before either.

If you somehow don't know there is two unavoidable sites when it comes to the WP tuts and stuffs for those who are new or not too familiar with WordPress:

First one is : WPBeginner

The second one is: WPtavern

And this is one of my recommended tuts for you about the right way of adding styles and javascript in Wordpress:

Let me explain to you my way which is by the way very simple and effective
Here is what I do when it comes to WordPress based website
First of all, Install WordPress simple and clean ( no plugins )
Second, Check carefully what you want WordPress to do ( all clients have demands , recommendations , notes , likes from other competitors websites ) , Or you may take a good look at competitors webs
Third, Find/Write the code .. So many times I find that adding 2 or 3 lines of code do the magic .
Forth, If you cant or don't find a code available online to do the job, Try explore plugins and make sure to get the one that is 100% compatible with the latest version of WordPress, Also check these comments written about it and see it in action if available.
Fifth, Try it and check how it affect page load time, and/or if it generate errors in your admin page
Sixth, Make sure this plugin do the exact job you picked it for.

Finally do NOT forget to check update WordPress AND plugins
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

I absolutely agree with you when it comes to the WP Plugins. It is always much much better to add a few lines of codes instead of installing many plugins or widgets. Of course if you really need more complex plugins then you should explore the best one that suit you, but in most cases plugins like Recent Posts, Recent Comments or Category or Archives Lists ...which you already have as a part of WordPress core it's easy to modify if you carefully follow good tuts and there are a lot of good ones online. NEVER forget WordPress Codex , it's the probably one of the best online manuals on the Internet generally.
Anyway good Themes comes already with these widgets modified. The plugins that you really need is:
- Seo Optimization plugin, I recommend Seo by Yoast
- WP-Optimize
- Regenerate Thumbnails
- Contact 7 if you have need for contact forms.
- Ultimate member if you need user management system, now they have free recaptcha ad-don.
These are all Free ones.

Adding meta tags or Google analytics is easy to do your self ...
And once again: never forget WordPress Codex.
Do not expect from others what you are not willing to do yourself!

I don't remember which site I learned about wordpress, mostly I found them via google then learned and compared among them. While nowadays my useful tutorial to solve any problems is the discussion at the wordpress support forum itself and some sites like www()wpbeginner()com, www()hongkiat()com and stackoverflow()com

hello,
i want to give some tips:
1. always install the latest update of wordpress and plugins
if a plugin has a security bug, and if a hacker find it using a scanner, then your wordpress website can be hacked easily
2. prevent accessing the login page after several times, when attempted to login
this attack is named brute force and hacker try's to guess your password from a password list and with a cracker software
3. install plugins from just the wordpress plugin directory
wordpress plugin directory is the safest plase for installing the plugins
and of course it has many many plugins to install
4. do not install many plugins in your wordpress website
first, it may slow's down your website
second, if a plugin has a bug, detecting the bug is very very hard
third, the bug may happen du to incompatibility between plugins
5. if you want to plase a code in your theme, first interpret the code yourself, because some codes in internet are buggy

if i remember some others, i'll share it

Hmm.. about this, I liked tutorials from the website wpbeginner.com. It helped me to customize and choose the right plugins for my personal website. Even in critical moments, I still use wpbeginner.com as my main tutorial place when I suffer from problems like 500 Internal Server Error. Most of the time the tutorial helped. But there is a less chance that this website will let you down. So, this is my favourite tutorial site.
