Description

Do you have a project that you want to get online?
Ready to make your own website but don't know where to start?

Get online in one day by learning how to make a simple website with WordPress.com

Why WordPress?
Because it's free, open source, and easy to use.

You'll learn to:

  • use the WordPress dashboard
  • publish posts and pages
  • set up a navigation menu
  • add images
  • find the right theme and install it
  • set up widgets

We'll also go over:

  • website design
  • website accessibility
  • how to find great images and make them web-ready
  • SEO best practices

You'll leave with a solid foundation in WordPress and the beginnings of a simple website.

No experience necessary. This is a hands-on beginner's class.

Please bring:

  • a laptop (no computers provided)
  • an idea for your website
  • some content for your site (home, about, blog posts, etc.
    not necessary, but this will get you up and running faster)

FAQs

I already have a website but want to learn how to use WordPress so I can update and maintain my site. Is this workshop for me?

Yes. We will cover everything you need to know to update and maintain a WordPress website, so this workshop is perfect for you.

I would like to make my website on my own server using WordPress.org. Can we go over that in this workshop?

We will be setting up on WordPress.com (the free, hosted version). If you would like to learn about the self-hosted WordPress (often referred to as WordPress.org) please contact me before signing up. Once installed both versions of WordPress are similar enough that this workshop will likely be right for you, but we won't go over installing WP.org in this class, you'll need to do that before attending. Lynda.com has a great video that can walk you through that process (free for anyone with a VPL card).

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Feel free to email hello@kunstudios.com with any questions.
