Wordpress tutorial

Can someone post a wordpress tutorial?

I don't know if I should use themes or build my own. At bare minimum I need to be able to manually edit my HTML because I need to use some JavaScript and PHP for this first assignment.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There's only about a million WordPress tutorials out for the Googling.  Try it based on the additional info below and you should be okay.

If you are new to WordPress, I would recommend you use existing themes and learn to make Child Themes from theme.  The TwentyFifteen theme is a great starter theme for this and the official documentation is located at:


From there, you should be able to Google multiple resources related to child themes.

Using a child theme would result in more security holes, correct?

What about directly editing html. This is possible in Wordpress, right?

I'm about to try this out, thanks.
