    Wordpress for Tutorial Site?

    I'd like to implement Wordpress for a tutorial site but am clueless as to what is needed. Anyone know of a free WP tutorial template or know what plugins are necessary?

    I don't see why you need any special plugins for a tutorial site. What functionality are you looking for exactly?

    Thanks! I was under the impression that the standard templates needed some plugins to make it functional for a template site, but if that's not the case, that's great!

    You don't need anything special, but I've found a few useful ones...

    http://www.soderlind.no/archives/200...agemanager-20/ - An image manager, can make adding tutorials easier.

    A social bookmarking plugin could be handy, too and a custom smiley plugin is useful if you want to, for instance, do something like "Now take the pen tool en_tool: and draw a path around...." and have an icon of the pen tool pop up there. Much faster than adding an images of the various buttons all the time.

    And not an icon of a ... Hehe.

    Really, though, I ran a photoshop tutorial site on wordpress for, almost 8 months I guess (just sold it) and didn't really find I needed any plugins specific for tutorials. Depending on how you want your site to behave, or what you want your users to be able to do (comment? rate? bookmark? etc.), you'll want to use plugins to accomplish those goals... but treat it the same as any other blog.
