    Hi

    Is Wordpress easy to use and make websites pages with?
    Can you do the fake video thing that links to ppi and do Blackhat stuff like that? Can you make logos with WP?

    Coz I never used it before see.
    Thanks

    No I do not.
    Why you ask?
    Is this needed for Wordpress sites?

    It's not needed but it makes installing WP-blogs a matter of 3 to 4 clicks.

    And for the ease of use.
    WP is aimed at the Net-newbies to get a blog running in no time.
    That's why it's so popular.
    The best thing about it is all the plugs that makes tasks go on autopilot.
    And don't forget the tons of free themes, no need to design yourself.

    All my blogs are on auto, the only thing I do now and then is checking the stats for the traffic it gets.

    True, they give you simple and detailed instructions on how to do it.
    Just takes a little more time than through Fantastico.
    But not having that is no reason for worry.

    Lots of them. jacobs has already said Hostgator. Another cheap but decent one is Bluehost. Both well worth checking out.

    Hostgator is no good to me as the form does not work for UK postcodes.

    Also what are the best plugins to er plug in?

    I got WP now on webhost installed but no Fantastico they just said

    I think everyone has posted their thoughts... I believe there are many programs and reports on WP in the download area that can help you move on :)

    Do also try to search for the Blog Buzzer and watch the videos, it does cover many aspect on blogging :)
