How To Organize Your WordPress Blog With Categories

Categories make it easy to direct the flow of your Blog and focus on key posts.

Duration: 15 Minute Screen Capture

Description: Organize your WordPress Blog with categories.  There’s a number of special considerations when using WordPress Categories that revolve around assigning multiple categories to individual posts.

There’s also a limit to the number of categories that you add and how deeply they are nested.  The easiest way to make the best use of the WordPress category function is to spend time BEFORE you add content mapping out the flow you want your visitors to take as they consume your information.

Structure your content first, then assign the content to a corresponding category.  Here are some things to think about while you’re organizing your posts:

  1. Do I want flat categories or nested categories?
  2. Am I linking menus to categories that are nested or flat?
  3. Do I want my listings of individual posts from nested categories to be displayed in the root category blog?

Beyond The Basic Options In WordPress

Duration: 9 Minute Screen Capture

Description: Tweak your basic WordPress blog with this video. Configuration and settings are all over in WordPress. Take the time to understand what each setting is for and how to use it in a way that supports the goal of your Blog.

I go throught each setup tab in this video and cover many of the variations that you might need to get the best performance from your site.

How To Create and Place WordPress Menus

A well structured Blog Menu means the difference between giving your visitors a detailed map or asking them to discover all your information for themselves.

A WordPress Menu is a powerful tool if used correctly.

Description: This WordPress video tutorial goes over the creation of WordPress menus and more importantly how to display the multiple menus in various locations in your WordPress powered Blog.

Each WordPress theme includes one or more locations for menus to be placed.   Depending on which theme you have active on your site you may be limited….

If you’re stuck we’ve got additional plugins that will allow you to display a menu as a widget in selected sidebars.  Placing what ever menu you have widgets, removes the themes menu limits. You should definitely watch this session twice, the first time to get an understanding of how menus work and a second time after you’ve written down some ideas for menu links and locations on your site.

MME-16: What Is A CODEC

What Is A Codec

Running Time: 20 Minutes

Description: This is about as technical as it gets! A Codec’s is the software built into your computer that COMPRESSES your raw audio files when you encode them and then DECOMPRESSES the audio file when your customers play your audio files with.

For example if you use RealNetworks Helix Producer Basic, you will be encoding your raw file with Real Networks Version 9 CODEC.

When your customer listens to the audio file with the RealONE player, the RealONE player DECOMPRESSES the audio file and the customer hears your audio. The bottom line is that your customer’s machine must have a player that has the "same CODEC installed" as the one that you encoded it on. The current version of RealOne’s Codec is Version 9. If your customer has an older version of the Real Player they won’t be able to listen to your file because the version 9 codec isn’t installed.

To fix this problem, media player software has the ability to download new CODEC’s as they become available. You shouldn’t have to worry about updating your customer’s media player software.

Today, you might run into problems when your customer’s media player doesn’t support the CODEC you encoded with. A good example is people who only have the Windows Media Player installed on their machines. If you send them an Apple QuickTime .mov file, they can’t play it. If you send them a Real .rm file they can’t play it. Microsoft only wants you to use their Windows Media CODEC.

Before you decide on how you are going to encode your files, do some with your potential customers and find out which players they have installed and if they are able to use an alternative player if they need to.

Of all the media players, RealONE is the most flexible. The Realnetworks strategy is "play every CODEC". If you have RealONE installed you can watch QuickTime and Windows media files and all of the latest Real Codecs.
