In WordPress workshops and training programs lately, I’m finding people logging into and accessing the Administration Panels of WordPress from a variety of novel ways instead of traditional. A WordPress Lesson article is wanted to describe traditional access points and untraditional. How does one get from the front end of their site to the back in the least clicks?

Learn WordPress at http://learn.wordpress.com is the guide for WordPress.com users as well as a great guide for new WordPress users. We’re working on expanding topics covered by Learn WordPress in the WordPress Lessons section of the Codex, taking the basics and digging in a little deeper to flesh it out, as is appropriate for our online manual for WordPress.
Take a look and see what they have been covering and pick a topic and let’s see what we can do with it.
Recent examples include: http://codex.wordpress.org/Comments_in_WordPress and http://codex.wordpress.org/How_to_Use_Gravatars_in_WordPress

There are several ways to use feeds in WordPress. The articles we have on the Codex need updating and maybe some additions. In general, feeds are used:
- In sidebars from external sites
- In sidebars from internal categories/custom post types/tags
- Author feeds for internal use in sidebars, etc.
- Category specific feeds for external use
- Tag specific feed for external use
- Author feeds for external use (and all the various feeds available)
- Removing WordPress default feeds and replacing them with an alternative
- Replacing content with feeds
And variations thereof.
Current articles are:
Someone up to date on feeds and WordPress want to take on a WordPress Lessons post to cover some of the missing bits and update the rest?
WordPress Lessons needs an article on how to efficiency use WordPress for live blogging events, tips and tricks and techniques for updating a post during an event, fast methods of adding multimedia, live stream video/audio, and tips for live blogging with WordPress in general.
In WordPress Lessons, we need a very simple introduction of the basics of what functions.php is and how it works with WordPress Themes. Assume the person has little expertise on the subject, as well as HTML and CSS or programming. This is just to answer the question “what is it, why is it in my theme and should I do anything with it” kind of article.
One of the most requested simple things people want to know how to do is change the fonts in a WordPress Theme, to make them different, larger, or smaller (ha!). We need a really simple article in WordPress Lessons on how to do this, using the Theme Editor or FTP to the stylesheet. It can reference Web Fonts and any Plugins that might make this easier that are in the WordPress Plugin Directory.
Anyone up for this?
