WP101 Video Tutorial Plugin


The WP101® Video Tutorial Plugin is simply the easiest way to teach your clients WordPress basics, cutting your support costs while providing an invaluable resource for your clients. It delivers a library of professionally-produced, WordPress 101 tutorial videos directly within your client’s own dashboard.

In addition to video tutorials for WordPress (both Gutenberg and Classic Editor), we’re continually expanding our library with video tutorials for the most popular WordPress plugins, including WooCommerce, Elementor, Beaver Builder, Ninja Forms, and WPForms.

Simply enter your WP101Plugin.com API key to display our WordPress tutorial videos within your client’s WordPress administration panel.

You can choose which tutorial videos to show in the list, or even embed your own custom videos.

Stop wasting your valuable time teaching WordPress to your clients. Let the WP101 Plugin free your time to do what you do best!


  • The video tutorial selection and viewing interface.
  • Add your own custom videos and deploy them to one or more sites.
  • Choose to hide or show individual videos—or an entire series—on a per-domain basis.
  • Manage all your client domains remotely, from one dashboard.
  • With an Agency Plan, you can also embed the 31-part WordPress 101 video series on the front-end of your membership site.
  • Use one API key across all your sites, or generate unique API keys as needed.


  1. Go to WP101Plugin.com to get your API key.
  2. Copy your API key from your WP101Plugin.com dashboard.
  3. Install and activate the WP101 Plugin in the ‘Plugins’ panel.
  4. Go to the Video Tutorials menu item and click the Settings button to enter your API key.


How do I get an API key?

Simply go to: WP101Plugin.com and follow the instructions to set up an API key in less than a minute.

Can I choose which video topics are displayed?

Yes! You can selectively hide or show individual tutorial videos (or entire courses) through the app at WP101Plugin.com.

Can I add my own custom videos?

Yes! You can add your own custom videos, and they’ll appear at the bottom of the list of tutorial videos. Visit the “Custom Videos” page in the WP101 Plugin app.

What if I have the Classic Editor installed?

If the Classic Editor plugin is also installed and activated on your site, the previous version of our WordPress 101 videos for the Classic Editor in WordPress 4.9 and older will also appear in the list. You can hide or show these videos in the Settings.

Why aren’t the videos for WooCommerce, WPForms, etc. showing up?

The tutorial videos for WooCommerce, Ninja Forms, WPForms and other plugins will only appear in the list if the plugin in question is also installed and activated on the same site. No sense showing videos that don’t apply to a particular site, right?

The plugin was installed by my developer, but their API key has expired. What do I do?

You can ask your developer to renew their subscription, or you can go to WP101Plugin.com to start your own Personal subscription and get access to all of our videos.

Can I hardcode my API key into the plugin for use across multiple installations?

Yes! Simply define the WP101_API_KEY constant within your wp-config file:

 * API key for the WP101 plugin.
 * @link https://wp101plugin.com

This plugin is incredible for my clients. I usually make custom training video and this cuts those down significantly. (And they took sooo much time to make.) The ability to add a few custom videos is fantastic. I especially appreciate the thorough and clear documentation for using the block editor, which many of my clients have found intimidating. They also provide FABULOUS support. Not that you’d usually need it — usually it works straight out of the box — but I had an odd hosting scenario and they took the time to carefully debug the situation and tell me what was wrong with the server setup. I can’t recommend them enough!

I’ve been using the WP101Plugin to support my virtual assisting and project management students for a couple of years now, and I’ve been blown away by the quality and detail of the videos. I appreciate that I can trust the WP101 brand to exhibit the same quality I strive so hard to provide to my students and clients.  In addition, my interaction with support (Shawn!) has been nothing short of stellar. He was able to turn what I thought would be a complicated request into a smooth transition as I upgraded my plan. I can’t tell you how much of a relief it is knowing that I not only have quality resources for my students and clients, but that I also have access to wonderful support whenever I need it. If you’re looking for a way to provide excellent WordPress training to your audience without the headache of actually producing the training, then WP101 videos are a MUST. They’re worth every cent!

I’ve been a customer of WP101 for a couple of years now. They provide professionally made, high quality training videos for WordPress, WooCommerce, Yoast, JetPack and more… I always wanted a way to provide training videos to my website clients so they can administer their own website. I used to train every single client on how to use their website and besides being time consuming, most people can’t absorb everything you teach them in one sitting. So this Plugin is the best solution!! Now I can give each of my clients access to these professionally made training videos that they can watch right in the backend of their own website, whenever they want. I don’t have to provide one-on-one training anymore (unless of course they want to pay extra for it), and everybody wins. This plugin is a great solution. You just have to pay for the membership you want and it’s definitely worth it! I highly recommend!

Professional, comprehensive videos for your clients on how to use WordPress. Saves hours of support time. As an added bonus, you can record your own training videos for the custom functionality you’ve built and make them available right in the WP Dashboard.
