Moving to WordPress is a really good decision you have already made, however have you made sure to change all the settings for your installation? The WordPress Codex document on Installing WordPress is something you should refer to prior to installation, but there are things you need to do after installing WordPress.

Here is a checklist that you can fallback on whenever you install WordPress for the first time or for that matter on a newer blog, the list is not exhaustive, so please feel free to contribute and add things that I may have missed out on.

These are just a few links, however they will go a long way to help you optimize your WordPress setup from day 1, you can also test out these changes on a local installation before you move out to a real blog, here is some help to get WordPress setup on a local environment before you decide to move it to your blog.

What else Help? You can find appropriate help when you face problems or require help with getting started with WordPress.

And this is not the entire list to fall back on, there are really tons of great resources on the Internet that will help you get started, need help with anything, just ask and more than 1 person will be willing to help you.

    I can’t believe that nobody had “create favicon” in their list of things that they do when they install WordPress.

    Websites just don’t look right unless they have a favicon.

    I use the generator at http://www.favicon.cc

    Cheers,
    Stu.

    yeah, I got my WP “post-installation tweaking” down to a fine art… such as it took me 5 minutes to get a WP blog the way I like it. I manually copy a plugs and themes folder, with my favourite add-ons in it, between different WP installs too, so they’re ready to activate when I set up a new blog – works just fine, much quicker than searching for the plugins, etc, from the admin panel of each blog.
