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!

What’s the difference between a video and a SIDEKICK Walkthrough?

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.

What is WordPress Basics?

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.
