As a popular WordPress resource, we get quite a few requests for 1-to-1 WordPress support, but unfortunately don’t have the resources to help everyone directly. We would love to help everyone out with specific questions and technical support, but really it’s just a matter of time that’s required for our own work, etc. So as you might suspect, we frequently see emails like look like this:
I understand that you are not able to give 1:1 support, so I would like to ask: where (web, forum, IRC) do I get answers about this?
So people are out there looking for a place to get hands-on, one-to-one help for their self-hosted WordPress-related issues. Apparently these days it’s not easy to find. As one reader recently lamented:
The WP forums seem to be pretty dead, I asked some questions there and never got responses or not in a reasonable time. I tried the IRC chat, but no-one seems to know something about SVN there too
Whether or not that’s true, we wanted to put together a solid resource for folks to use for finding good WordPress help, much like we did with our list of WordPress Designers and Developers, where readers could leave comments with their information. In this case, we’re focusing on one-to-one WordPress help, so feel free to shout out any names or resources you might know of (including your own).
