Real-time, voice-guided WordPress training and support straight from your dashboard.
Sidekick is a platform that provides real-time interactive tutorials from within any web application or CMS.
A Walkthrough is a real-time, guided tutorial that takes you step by step through a task from start to finish. When you complete the Walkthrough, you’ve completed the task!
While a video speaks to you about a feature or completing a task, a SIDEKICK Walkthrough walks you step by step through to completing your goals. Walkthroughs are interactive and in real-time, which means they happen live, on your dashboard while a video takes you out of flow and doesn’t work with you to get things done.
When we say “WordPress Basics”, we are referring to any Walkthrough that has to do with features and functions provided by a fresh, default install of WordPress, downloaded from WordPress.org. Basically, if a walkthrough is helping you complete a standard WordPress function like creating a post, it’s part of our WordPress Basics Library.
You can view all the Walkthroughs available in our library here.
SIDEKICK builds, maintains and updates the WordPress Basics Library.
Plugin and theme specific Walkthroughs are called Third Party Walkthroughs and are created and maintained by the plugin or theme creator, unless otherwise mentioned.
You can build Walkthroughs for your plugin or theme by joining our WordPress Developer Program. Your Walkthroughs will be available for free to anyone with SIDEKICK plus your plugin or theme activated.
