This workship will show you how to set up a self-hosted version of WordPress and create awesome blogs or web sites. This workshop would be useful to someone wishing to set up an entire WordPress site or to add a WordPress blog on to an existing site.
This workshop is a little more involved and shows how to get the most out of the self-hosted version of WordPress. AYou'll learn how to get a web host, set up a domain, and download, configure, and upload WordPress to your newly hosted site. Then we'll cover the many tools in WordPress, showing how to set up your profile and create content to share with your audience. The course also includes tutorials on everything from adding images, video, formatting, and links, to installing plug-ins, creating custom themes, and attracting readers with permalinks, social sharing, and more. We'll also cover migrating a blog from WordPress.com to a self-hosted account.
What else? We'll cover profiles, publishing posts and pages, using page templates, inserting images, video, and other media, working with themes, understanding widgets, creating child themes, search engine optimization (SEO), and site security.
