About This Workshop

WordPress is the premier content management system for those seeking an easy, user-friendly way to set up and maintain a website. In this workshop, 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. 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.
