Wordpress Workshop

Wordpress Workshop
November

Hosts:
- Nicole Paton
- Dee Teal

Have you ever wanted to know how to make your own website or blog but didn't know where to start? Our Wordpress workshop will show you how to create a website from scratch and you will leave the workshop with your very own website! So come along and bring your ideas and dreams.

Prerequisites:

Please bring along an idea for a website or blog you would like to create. If you have some ideas of colours or images you would like to use that would be great too!

Sushi will be provided for dinner.

    To be honest, I thought we'd get further into the process - from the write up of the event, it gave the impression we'd be going home with a site (not just WordPress installed).

      I'll respond anyway :)
      I make websites, but I usually get my husband Warren to do the WordPress installation, so I can totally understand the time delay in learning how to do it if you've never done a manual installation before.
      Perhaps an option in the future could be to provide a pre-attendance checklist (to ensure everyone has the necessary components/software/host­ access details in place ready to go) and then have the group follow along step by step with you as you create the installation.

      Then, show how to do some basic customisations (using in built wordpress features - header/background) of WordPress 2013 & 2012 theme (depending on the type of layout the participant might want).
      And allocate 3 hours - do you think with some pre-prep, this could be done in 3 hours?

    Thank you so much! This was fantastic. Amazing to see the people on my table come to the workshop and create their first ever website! Great work for a small 2 hour workshop.

    Is this going to be suitable for intermediate level self-hosted Wordpress'ers or mainly an intro for beginners?

    November 20, 2013

    • Nicole P.

      This is an intro to setting up self hosted wordpress websites. If you have more knowledge we would love for you to come along anyway and be of assistance to others. And who knows, you may learn something yourself as well.

  • kittybaroque

    Hello lovely people. Just checking if I bring my laptop to this session or are the ideas/sites we are to come with to be used as examples only? i.e. Are we working on setting up our site on the night? Thx in advance, Sharon

    November 25, 2013

    • Nicole P.

      Yes please bring your laptop. You will be working in small groups on setting up a very basic site on the night. Hopefully you will then be able to take away what you have learnt and continue on with your own site.

      November 25, 2013

  • Laura H.

    Probably a silly question but do we need to bring a laptop and have wordpress installed? Or will you start with the installation process?

    1 · November 20, 2013

    • kittybaroque

      I just asked the same Q....Already have mine installed but need to figure out set up of. Not a silly Q since I asked it too :-D

    • Nicole P.

      Installation on a cpanel server will be covered on the night.

    Unfortunately I can't come along anymore. Would be great if another session could be scheduled next year, looks like there is definitely enough interest.
