Event description

Description

This workshop will teach you the skills to build, manage and run an awesome website or blog using WordPress.

As well as being a powerfull Content Management System, WordPress is used by over 80% of the internet including The Rolling Stones, Marks and Spencer and Facebook.

The day is designed for absolute beginners and will take you through...

  • What is a CMS, and what happened to HTML?
  • Differences between self hosted and wordpress.com
  • WordPress installation and configuration.
  • Differences between page and posts.
  • Media and content management.
  • Effective use and management of Themes and Plugins.
  • Publishing the site.
  • Basic analytics and SEO

Do I need any previous experience?

None at all, just be eager to learn and have plenty of questions. If you can competently use a computer and the internet you'll be fine.

Do I need to pay for any specific software?

No, all the software we'll use on the day will be completely FREE and provided to you. You will however, need a laptop to work on during the day.

Which version/type of WordPress is this applicable to?

We'll be working with the most up-to-date version of WordPress on a self hosted install. However, the lessons are applicable to WordPress.com too.

What do I get?

During the day we'll work on a real life project and you'll have access to a real, working website. Thanks to our friends at DIGLAB you'll also be able to use the website and hosting for FREE for 12 months afterwards. They'll also provide online support after the workshop too.
