Recently found a list of WordPress tutorials on the Creative Bloq website, that has a vast range of well explained “how to” articles, for the beginner as well as the more experienced WordPress user.
some examples of the WordPress tutorials on offer
I am still working through the list myself, and sometimes find that links are not working (for articles linked to Smashing Magazine in particular. The link has wp. at the very beginning, if you replace this with www. then it tends to work as expected).
