Although never fully intended as a CMS, WordPress is indeed one of the most widely used CMS in the world.
When working with some clients, you’ll often encounter difficulties training your clients on how to use it properly in order to update the content of their websites.
This is were the WordPress User Manual Plugin comes in really handy. This plugin is a very solid and professional effort by the folks at VideoUserManuals.
They created a very comprehensive video and online manual packaged as a WordPress plugin that you, as a developer, can give to your clients.
The plugin contains over 30 video tutorials and over 100 pages of instructions, always updated and covering from version 2.8 through 3.01 (and updated with every new stable version).
One week from today, we’ll be giving away 3 Lifetime Licenses to the WordPress Manual Plugin (which sells for $24 per month) to three lucky WDD readers.
Here’s a bit more information about the WordPress Manual Plugin:
- Over 30 video tutorials
- Online written manual with over 100 pages
- An updated manual with every stable release of wordpress
- The plugin is fully customizable and rebrandable
Each time WordPress updates, a new set of videos is produced to cover the new functionality and they also update the written manual. The plugin also detects the version of WordPress that you are using and displays the correct version of the manual.
How much is your time worth? Developers always underestimate how much time they spend on preparing tutorials and answering client questions.

The plugin is fully brandable and customizable, so you can replace the default imagery with your own, to give your client a better branded experience.
In addition, in the event that offer only certain pieces of functionality to your client, such as using the pages feature but not posts, you can turn off the specific video sections that you do not wish to show to your client.
Here’s a short video explaining things further:
