You may not realize it, but you need a WordPress cheat sheet or two in your life.

The holy book for all things WordPress is the Codex. Its strength lies in the fact that it contains masses of information on the mechanics of the platform. Unfortunately, however, its strength is also its major weakness, as finding what you are looking for can be a time-consuming and rather annoying affair.

Enter cheat sheets, your new savior. As the name implies, these are handy sheets containing the most frequently needed information relating to the WordPress backend, all gathered into one place. So, if you are looking for the template hierarchy, HTML, CLI, RGB color codes, CSS, etc., a cheat sheet will have you covered.

In this post, we’ve gathered together a ton of examples that will without a doubt be handy to you at some point in time. For convenience, we have included only those that are downloadable (PDF or image files), but there are plenty of web pages available on the internet with even more cheat sheets. So, let’s dive straight in.
