WordPress 101: "Getting Started" (Half-Day Seminar)

An introduction to WordPress. The basics, and "hows" & "whys" of WordPress with an in-depth look at the main features, files, and plugins.Learn to install, configure, style and extend your WordPress site using best practices.

Learn how to update a WordPress site and master the art of blogging.

Learn to enhance your WordPress site with plugins (WordPress "add-ons" or "extensions" that add functionality to your site).

Note: We have good WiFi, and you can bring a laptop to follow along and work on your site, or just take notes online. (This is not a laboratory class where you do online exercises, this will be show-and-tell of the WordPress system.) If you learn better by taking notes on paper, then do that instead.

Morning coffee available, delicious hot lunch (Dominos Pizza) and snacks (chips/cookies) will be served.

Includes free admission to afternoon WordPress Meetup (2pm-4pm)—a $10 value.

Presented by Tony Cecala, Ph.D. WordPress consultant.
