WordPress: Beyond the Basics (WP-ADV)
When you are ready to really “own” the power and versatility that WordPress has to offer, then you’ll want to take this workshop. There are a vast number of free and low cost features available to customize your website… WordPress allows you to change color schemes & page layouts; add calendars, contact forms & multi-media sections, include e-commerce tools, create social media links and much, much more!
In this workshop you will learn how to: Find and install WordPress “Themes” to customize the overall look and feel of your website; Use “Plugins” to add a wide range of functionality to your pages; Adapt “Widgets” to manage the content placement on your site; Work with “Shortcode” to easily embed elements into your pages; and other tricks & techniques to make your site unique and interesting to your viewers.
You will work online on an actual WordPress website, (your own or a practice one we will set up for you) so that you can get real experience using and manipulating these tools. By the end of the class, you will have a very strong understanding of the wide range of options that are open to you in customizing your site.
