    WordPress seems like an uncharted territory when you first venture into it. Soon though, when you’ve been there for sometime, it feels easy as a pie. Everything just works. My experience though limited, put a doable notion in my head for anything whenever someone is stuck up in WordPress.
    Seems like you’ve put up a comprehensive list here to train recruits for the WordPress army.
