In Detail

Take your HTML and CSS skills to the next level, by mastering the World's most popular content management system for building websites: WordPress!

Master WordPress from scratch in a fun, project-based approach. This course is for anybody looking for a career building WordPress websites or themes, or even hobbyists looking to learn a new skill.

We begin the course by getting you familiar with WordPress and looking at how to install it using a localhost. We then look at WordPress essentials such as blog posts, pages, navigation menus, and installing themes-all while you build your very own blog website.

Once you have the basics covered, we move onto customizing our blog using sliders, widgets, and header images, and work with the customizer. You will also optimize your WordPress website for search engines and create backups.

The second project takes your WordPress knowledge even further. We create a fully functional eCommerce T-Shirt store. More techniques are introduced throughout this project such as child themes, dealing with products, categories, shipping, and taxes-all while building a beautiful, customized website.

After completing the first 2 projects, we move things on even further by introducing you to WordPress theme development and converting an existing HTML and CSS website into a fully functional WordPress theme. This section involves coding in PHP; however, if you are new to PHP a dedicated PHP basics section will get you up to speed.

This project introduces new techniques and you will gain a deeper knowledge of how WordPress themes are created. You will learn how WordPress templates are used and employ various WordPress functions to build your theme.

Finally, the last section focuses on useful techniques to enhance your WordPress knowledge. Here we will cover exporting localhost websites to a live server, various plugins, and more.

So, are you ready to take your web design or WordPress skills to the next level? Join and the author looks forward to having you onboard!
