I just got into WordPress and have been surprised at how simple it is to set up and configure..but I've only installed it using Microsoft WebMatrix, which has php/mysql/etc. all bundled together and basically pre-configured. The purpose of my post is to ask about:
A) How to do a few more things in WordPress
B) Suggestions on where to Host the site based on reliability/ease of installation.
So how to do things:
1) I figured out how to set up categories and sub-categories and make those categories show up as menu items, but I want the archives to go by month but to also mimick the existing category structure instead of just lumping everything into months.
2) Is there a plugin that will allow simple embedding of audio/video into posts that don't require short code html? Everything I found requires some sort of short code. I don't mind typing the short code but there are other less computer savvy people that will be posting and I'd like to make it as easy for them as possible. If it just doesn't exist then what's your recommended plugin for easy embedding of audio/video in your posts? We'll also be attaching powerpoint files.
And about hosting
1) Is there a hosting site that is anywhere near as simple to setup WordPress as WebMatrix was to set up locally?
2) What is the file upload limit on this hosting site and it is a royal pain to change? Since I will be uploading audio I'll need more than 2mb!
That's all I can think of for now..I'm sure I'll have alot more!
