We’ve had upgrades and site improvements since I started recording tutorials. You may see some differences between my recorded screen and your screen. If you see a tutorial that looks a lot different than what you see, please let me know. When plugins are updated, sometimes their look changes.

As of January 2015, the widget area looks different than in some of my tutorials. New sites as of January 2015 have all video code in the widget area.
