One thing new WordPress users struggle with is the jargon–what do all of these words mean? To help, I spent some time digging around and found some great WordPress glossaries. Here are
- WordPress Codex Glossary: This document is designed to offer definitions of various terms, exclusive to WordPress, that users may not be familiar with.
- WordPress Jargon Glossary: It’s easy to forget that in WordPress we use a lot of jargon, so the Marketing Team has created this document. There’s even a handy PDF version.
- Make WordPress Core Glossary: The glossary from the Make.WordPress.Core contributor handbook.
- WordPress Glossary Terms for Beginners (by WP Beginner): Are you puzzled by strange WordPress terms or abbreviations? Are you looking for a WordPress dictionary that explains these WordPress terms in plain
English? Then this is for you.
Whenever you find a term you don’t understand while working with WordPress, chances are the definition is in one of these glossaries. Happy WordPressing!
