Wordpress Basics - How to Start a WP Site

**FREE MEETUP

Due to popular demand, I'm repeating the "Build a WP site from scratch" meetup.

This is a beginner class that will instruct you on how to start your own Wordpress site and will establish a foundation for you. Half way through the meetup there will be a free wine tasting.

Topics Covered:

What is Wordpress?

Self hosted WP sites vs Wordpress.com blogs

The Dashboard

Permalinks

Pages vs Posts

Themes

Plugins

Widgets

At the end of the session, we will have a 20 minute Q&A Session. The entire meetup lasts about 2 hours. 

Hope to see you then!

Cheers, Tony.
