Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this wordpress class:

Learn to create and manage websites or blogs with WordPress.

Make Websites Using WordPress

WordPress enables you to create and maintain a website, even if you have no web design background or knowledge of the code that makes website works. WordPress is built with HTML, CSS, and PHP, so web developers who do know code have even greater control over WordPress sites. Whether you want to create a new website/blog or manage an existing WordPress website, this class is for you.

An Essential Skill for Web Developers: 40% of Websites Use WordPress!

If you design or code websites, knowing how to use WordPress is essential as many of the websites you design or build are likely to use (or should use) WordPress. WordPress drives over 40% of all websites because it provides loads of functionality and the ability to create themes (templates) to control the look and feel and and functionality of a website. The people you build websites for will want to edit the content (text, images, etc.) and WordPress will enable them to do so without having to know coding.

In this class you’ll learn how to create pages, edit content, and see how your clients will interact with WordPress when creating and editing content. You’ll also learn how to control the layout, appearance, and functionality of WordPress sites using easy to use tools that don’t require coding knowledge, as well as when to use code for even greater control.

This course has a Prerequisite

  • You should have basic HTML and CSS coding experience equivalent to our Web Development with HTML & CSS class.
