About This Workshop

The well-being of our employees, students, clients, instructors, and guests is our number one priority here at General Assembly. We are monitoring COVID-19 very carefully and are adjusting delivery of our programs.


Due to the current health concerns, all GA short-form events, workshops & bootcamps will temporarily be held online - including this one.


Registered participants will be notified 24 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and other tools you’ll need for the session. Registration for this offering will close 2 hours prior to the session start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.

WordPress is the premier content management system for those seeking an easy, user-friendly way to set up and maintain a website. In this class, you’ll walk through the basics of getting your site live quickly and discover various free templates as well as premium resources that require little to no coding skills and will have your site looking polished and professional. Once your site has gone live, you’ll learn how to update and maintain it using the WordPress dashboard, as well as common problems and pitfalls to avoid. Plus you’ll find out how to customize your site to get the exact look you’re going for.


General Assembly’s classes, workshops and events are recreational and for avocational purposes only. No certificate is awarded.

  • Create and update content (pages, blog entries, photos etc) in WordPress quickly and efficiently
  • Discover different themes, what they are, where to get them, and how to customize them
  • Master plugins, widgets and settings

Preparation

  • You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection.
  • This course will occur completely online using Zoom and Slack.
  • Course set up information will be emailed to all students signed up around 24 hours before (and again an hour before) your course launches.
  • Each individual course participant must have purchased a ticket

  • This is a beginner to intermediate course which is designed to be helpful to those who have never seen WordPress before or those who have been using WordPress but without a formal understanding of the mechanics behind it. We only require students to have a familiarity with navigating websites and the internet. You can also bring a paper and pen to take good notes, and bring questions! This class is a broad overview with time for answers on each topic.
