WordPress 101 is a hands-on session for those new to WordPress. The goal with this two part class is to get everyone comfortable setting up and building a basic WordPress website or Blog. We can’t guarantee you’ll have a professionally built website in just 4 hours but you should feel empowered to take the skills you’ve learned and build out a site you can be proud of that can continue to grow and evolve.

Are you new to WordPress (or know someone who is) and want some hands-on support in setting up your website? WordPress 101 is designed to take you from a blank slate to a fully functioning website before you walk out the door. We provide almost everything* you need to get started.

If you’re a beginner who is wondering if this is the right place for you – the answer is YES! You’ll be guided through the steps needed to get your first website up and running.

We’ll take you through:

  • Initial settings and basic security measures (what you need to do first thing to ensure a clean site)
  • Getting content on your website – basic pages used on most websites (Home, About, Contact, etc.); your first Post, how to use Categories (vs Tags) to group similar content
  • Theme Selection for the “look” you want, Sidebars and Widgets, and Social Media connections with your website
  • Plugins to enhance your websites functionality and appearance

Make sure to sign up for Part 2 in the afternoon!
