About This Workshop

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?

In this course you’ll develop a custom site starting from scratch. 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 customizable; all on WordPress.

Takeaways

  • Understand the capabilities of WordPress as a blogging platform and CMS.
  • Learn basic HTML and CSS
  • Develop a custom website from scratch
  • Learn how to customize navigation
  • Understand how to leverage the WordPress plug-in library

Preparation

Please bring a laptop to class.
