About This Workshop Series

Wordpress is awesome, but often misunderstood. What is it? How can it be used for website development? What are plugins, themes and widgets? What do we look for when choosing a template? What is WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org?

In this course we will develop a custom WordPress website in class, from scratch. We will take an empty domain, install WordPress through a server, and go through all of the necessary magic to have the site running live and dynamic using WordPress -- complete with a blog and content!

Topics we'll cover are: requirements for a WordPress installation; recommended best practices and settings; how to publish, organize and leverage WordPress's content capabilities; recommended plugins; and how to research, install and customize WordPress themes.

Afterwards, you will be able to edit content on a WordPress website, manage a site's backend admin navigation, and leverage an array of existing plugins and themes that will help take a site from a simple blog to a fully functional content management system (CMS). All customizable; all on Wordpress.
