About this class series

Wordpress is awesome, but often misunderstood. Is it a blogging platform? A CMS? Should you buy a custom theme or develop your own? Wordpress.com vs. Wordpress.org?

WordPress is the premiere blogging and content management system for those seeking an easy to set up and maintain blog. In this workshop we will build a simple blog using free Wordpress themes and we'll also walk through the basics of getting a polished site live, quickly and cheaply. With an emphasis on the non-coder, we’ll look at free templates as well as premium resources that require little to no coding skills. We will also cover some key blogging and social media strategies that will help you get your blog off the ground and noticed online. Basically, you’ll take a static front-end HTML/CSS template and do all the necessary magic to have that site running live and dynamic using Wordpress.

Afterwards, your clients will be able to edit content themselves, manage the site’s navigation, and leverage an array of existing plug-ins that will help take the site from a simple blog to a fully functional CMS. All customisable; all on Wordpress.
