What's it all about?

Create a website that can do just about anything, without any technical coding! In this course, you'll learn how to build content management websites and blogs with WordPress.org, the world's most popular Web page publisher.

Content management lets you control your own site by providing an easy-to-use online administrative area that makes creating and updating content as simple as sending an email. Your online visitors will be able to comment on your articles, fill out forms and applications, buy your products, and even make appointments.

You'll master each step, from selecting a domain name and a hosting company to installing WordPress and creating pages. You'll discover how to insert images and multimedia, create a user-friendly navigation system, and take advantage of the dynamic add-on features known as plug-ins. You'll explore how to turn your website into an ecommerce powerhouse and improve search engine page results. And you'll also learn some HTML and CSS coding to customise your site's look and feel.

If you want to build or maintain a professional WordPress website with all the bells and whistles, this course is for you.

What do others think?

‘This course is extremely well written, step-by-step, with visual examples of before and after so the student knows what the change should look like. Questions were answered quickly and concisely. The course content gave a solid understanding of setting up and running a WordPress website which is exactly what I wanted from this class. I already have a four year undergraduate degree and took many classes, most in classrooms but several online. Therefore, probably the highest praise that I can give is to say that "I could hardly wait for each lesson to be released.” I looked forward to learning more about the subject and knew that the information would be presented in a way that it would be a pleasure to learn!’
