Want to create a website but aren’t sure exactly where to get started?
In this series of workshops, you will learn from industry professionals in clear, non-programmer terms, how to use the tools provided by WordPress to build and manage a website to help draw in an audience.
Since these are hands-on workshops, be sure to bring in your laptop as it will be needed for both sessions.
WordPress Essentials for Beginners - Thursday, November 5: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Want to dip your toes in the WordPress waters but unsure where to start? This session for complete beginners will get you comfortable with the basics of using the WordPress content-management system to build and manage a website. In easy-to-understand language, we’ll introduce you to fundamental WordPress building blocks and take a tour of the dashboard. You’ll come out of the session excited and ready to dive into your first WordPress project, whether it’s a personal blog or a company site. Bring your laptop to start setting up your test site at the end of the session.
WordPress Essentials for Beginners: Diving Deeper - Thursday, November 12: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Bring your laptop for this hands-on session as it is required to complete this workshop. You’ll create a small WordPress.com website with a custom menu and widgets, set up pages and posts, categories and tags, and explore different themes. We’ll share tips and gotchas we wished we knew when starting out, and delve into key topics for those running WordPress on their own hosting, from plugins and hosting, to domain names and security. Participants should be familiar with WordPress basics.
Speakers: Kathryn Presner, Theme Whisperer, Automattic & Alex Ruaux, Web Designer and Developer
