The WordPress community is a large and helpful one, there’s no doubt about that. The facts and information available are extensive in order to enlighten all bloggers on the ways to improve their blogs and websites. The people involved only mean to look out for one another and together, as a community, blogging becomes an absolutely fulfilling experience.
There are four sections that make up the Community – Support, Forums, WordCamps and WordPress.org.
The WordPress.com Support page encourages users to search and ask anything related to WordPress.com. There is a huge search box on its Support page for users to type in topics or keywords of things they would like to know more about.
There is also an orange button at the bottom of the page that says ‘Get Help’ when you need to ask an actual person questions about your blog. The ‘Happiness Engineers’ as they are called, will be glad to assist you with your queries.
Perhaps you want to start a discussion or just looking to engage with other WordPress users. The Forums would be a good place to start. Here, you can ask questions regarding WordPress.com and all its features. You will be sure to get an answer or two from the helpful forum members there who are also there to make friends with other WordPress.com users.
There’s nothing like a sense of community when all the users there are helping one another.
Want to attend events that only focus on WordPress? Try WordCamps! As they have explained on its page, WordCamps are informal conferences for people from all walks of life to gather, share and learn. It is great that these events are open to all levels of the WordPress community.
The WordPress.org website would be the place to download the WordPress software for users starting a self-hosted site. The software, which is an Open Source project, is the work of hundreds of people worldwide. It is mentioned on the website that WordPress is created by the community for the community.
