WordPress for Beginners - with Mike Little (WP co-founder)

Thurs 6th & Fri 7th February, 2014

10am - 4.30pm

If you've never had a website or blog, or never been happy with the one you have, start here. Over two days you'll learn everything you need: planning and setting up a site, publishing content, getting a polished look with themes, adding functionality with plugins, and how to make conversations with your readers effortless. The course includes a month's free hosting for your site so you can practice your skills. After completing the course, you'll have a website, and you'll know how to look after it. WordPress is the publishing platform of choice for more than 73 million websites and blogs – including some of the most high-profile sites in the world. It's quick to install, and simple to get started on, with little configuration and setup. But, as an incredibly powerful web publishing platform, it takes some knowledge to truly get the best out of it. This course will give you a great start. It will take you from the installation of the software, adding content (including multimedia), interacting with your reader, through customising the look and enhancing the functionality of your site.

Who is this for?

This class is ideal for someone who wants to set up their first website, whether you have heard of WordPress or not. If you have heard about blogging and want to start your own blog, this course will get you started. If you have a small business, organisation or charity, this course will be ideal for you. You might be a freelance journalist wanting to show off some of your writing, an acupuncturist hoping to attract more clients, or a gardener finding small ads in the free paper less and less effective. You may have already tried to set up WordPress but got lost in the technical stuff. This course will set you back on the right track.

Your tutor: Mike Little

Mike is the co-founder of WordPress. He’s also the founder and CEO of WordPress consultancy zed1.com, has a portfolio including prominent government sites, is a published author, technical editor and member of the Usability Professionals Association… but let’s face it, we had you at ‘co-founder of WordPress’.
