Posted: 16 Aug 2012 05:38 PM PDT

Like most web designers, I didn’t go through school education to learn how to use WordPress. The process of learning went through reading books, trying tutorials, studying great designers themes, and finally checking some images, charts and infographics that visually gave me a better understanding of WordPress. Following are some infographics that will give you a better understanding of WordPress.

Having a good understanding of WordPress’ template hierarchy can help you save a good amount of time, at least this chart did this for me. I chose the version created by WPtuts+ because it seemed more appealing visually to me, but the WordPress Codex contains a more detailed and up-to-date version of this chart.

6. The WordPress loop
