Weekly Recap: Site Planning—and WordPress.tv Needs Your Videos!

Three more French-language tutorials and one video tutorial make up this week on WordPress.tv:

First, our friends at WP Channel have produced yet another great set of WordPress tutorials: Configurer les clés de sécurité secrètes dans le wp-config.php, Optimiser la base de données MySQL de WordPress, and Intégrer un module Facebook Connect sur votre blog WordPress.

Also, Scott Ellis has provided us with another nice tutorial. In Building The Ultimate Website Content Map, Part One, he discusses some of the work that happens before you get going in creating a WordPress site—figuring out how you’re going to organize it. Past tutorials from Scott on custom fields and using sort order have been well-received, and all are worth your time.

This week, I’d like to focus on the community aspect of WordPress.tv. As with both Scott and the videos from WP Channel this week, some of the best tutorials and walkthroughs on WordPress.tv are videos that were produced by WordPress users and community members just like you.

As we’re entering a pretty quiet time for WordCamps—approaching the holiday season—WordPress.tv has had some pretty slow weeks recently. It doesn’t have to be so! You’ve seen what others in the community are capable of. Why not take the time to compose your own video tutorial and submit it for publication here on WordPress.tv?

To get you started, you can check out our submission guidelines or a handy list of screencasting resources that Michael put together earlier this year. Then, pick a topic! Find something about WordPress that excites you or that you feel you’re skilled with. Think about how you would teach someone how to do something or use a plugin, theme, or feature as well as you do. Then, get recording!

When you have your video together, contact us and we’ll be happy to take a look. If you have any questions, either contact us through the same form or feel free to leave a comment here—we’ll be happy to help you figure things out!
