If you haven’t already, in some point in your WordPress-coding/designing life, you’re going to come across a WordPress bug or something you just don’t know how to fix or get working. So what do you do? If you’re like me, you’ll first ask your coding buddies, then hit up Google to see what you can find, then maybe head over to the WordPress Codex, if all else fails. Here are some alternatives to getting WordPress help so you don’t have to bother your coding buddies.
I usually hate forums. Especially when I’m looking for help. But nonetheless, they do the job most of the time. Some of my favorite WordPress support forums are listed below:
Google, believe it or not, is one of my favorite places to get WordPress help. Google knows a ton of junk. If there’s an answer for your problem, Google is most likely to know where it is. If there aren’t any great search results for your search, it probably means you’re one of the few people having that problem, so don’t be shy, go to a forum and ask!
When using Google, you can use specific keywords to search a specific site. As Hafiz Rahman commented below, you can use “site:codex.wordpress.org” to search WordPress’s Codex directly from a search engine, and it’s more accurate! Click here for more on search engine tricks.
