When people think about running a WordPress website, they often think of other website owners as top developers, people who both are entrepreneurs and also know how to assess, if not write, code. Well, that's a nice picture and there's plenty of these business owners. But let me tell you the truth here: this segment doesn't represent the majority of WordPress users and WordPress-based businesses. WordPress users are quite heterogeneous by nature, and include many different combinations of experience and technical knowledge.

Thanks to its ease of use, WordPress has been able (and still is able) to succeed by attracting many non-technical users. Among these tens of thousands, there are lots of smart minds that want to know more about how they could leverage WordPress to create their business. These soon-to-be WordPress consultants, marketers, and even web designers will have to learn more about WordPress if they want to earn some money out of what they offer.

And what's the best learning methodology? It's learning by doing. Specifically, it's getting your hands dirty with WordPress.

    Nice! What a helpful infographic for helping WordPress users to diagnose and understand all the common issues that might impact a WordPress website.

    I follow pretty much the same process when helping clients fix their sites with these issues with much success in the past fixing the sites.

    I’ll add on the Syntax error, aside from what was mentioned, I’ve also seen empty line spaces between code or at the end of a file cause syntax issues where once the extra line space was removed it resolved the issue. Cheers!
