ordPress, a foundation for your future site? Why not as it is the choice of around 14% of web sites. More than a blogging platform it is a robust CMS (content management system). Easy to edit and to update. Change the content, tweak how it looks, or even give your whole site a makeover.
I have used WP for many years, discovering how solid yet flexible it is. Not only is it fun to work with, but also once some basic techniques are mastered it is also not too difficult to design an attractive and fully functioning site. And if you wish, the learning can go on until you truly become a WP ninja!
So why consider a course in WP development?
There are many reasons and each person will, I am sure, come up with unique reason. There are some very good themes out there that can be downloaded, some for free, some paid for. If you find one that works great, but…
It is very satisfying to develop a site oneself, to start from scratch, change the style of it and add specific functions that work for you. Once you have done that you will know exactly where to go to make any changes.
You might even want to do so to develop skills that could earn you some income. Why not. Do a good job for someone else and be rewarded.
I offer these courses which will take you from ‘I know nothing’ to ‘Wow, look what I can now do!’ You will not just learn how to write a post, or change how the fonts look, but how to add animation such as a newsticker or an image slider. Having taught myself, I know the questions that are normally asked.
The core course
As you can see with the lesson summaries to the right the main course will take you from uploading a copy of WP to your site, adding your base theme and then learning the techniques of customising it until you have it the way you want. This is the course I recommend as it will give you a very flexible theme that is ‘responsive’ to whatever screen it is being viewed on.
I also have on this site a set of FAQs related to WP in general, as well as a few stand-alone tutorials as well as some common snippets (pieces of coding) that you will use from time to time.
If you do get involved with this course I am sure you will benefit enormously and enjoy yourself.
