Who is this WordPress course for? 

Have you ever wanted to build a professional-looking website, but didn’t know where to start?  Now you can.  WordPress for Beginners is a complete course for anyone, no matter what your technical ability.  This course assumes no prior knowledge!

At the start of the course, I’ll walk you through setting up WordPress on your own computer so that you don’t need to pay for a web host (or a domain name) while you master WordPress.  When you decide you want to put a website online, you can then watch over-my-shoulder as I buy a domain name and hosting, and install WordPress online.

Whether you decide to host your site on your own computer, or at a web host, you’ll be ready to start mastering WordPress.  We’ll start at the very beginning by logging in to have a look around to familiarize ourselves with the main areas of the Dashboard.

Once you are happy navigating around your new tools, we’ll go through the main features you will need as you create your site, including:

The WYSIWYG Editor. This is where you enter all of your website content.

The Media Library, to manage your images, videos, sound files, and other media you want to share on your site.

WordPress Settings, and I’ll take you to step by step to set those up just right.

-We’ll look at the differences between WordPress posts and pages, and I’ll give you a simple way of knowing which one to use on any occasion.

-We’ll look at post excerpts, categories, and tags, and how to use them on a well-structured site to maximize the visitor experience and search engine ranking benefits.

-You’ll see the two main ways you can set your homepage up.

-We’ll create a contact form on the site so visitors can get in touch.

-We’ll set up an About us page, and I’ll explain why this page is important and what information to include on it.

-We’ll cover the legal pages you need.

-We’ll discuss the navigation system on your site, and how you can set up customized navigation in the header, sidebar, or footer of your site. We’ll also talk about internal site linking.

-We’ll cover WordPress security, and set up a system that will keep the site safe from hackers.
