WordPress Crash Course: Build Websites and Blogs in Minutes

Video description

If you want to build professional websites, WordPress, the popular and free open-source website creation platform, is a great tool to have in your back pocket. This course teaches you the conceptual framework of a WordPress-based Content Management System (CMS), as well as the practical steps for building a modern website or a blog.

We start with WordPress installation and building blocks, the principles of the WordPress CMS, and a tour of the admin panel. Next you learn about posts, pages, and forums before jumping into a unit on using plugin management to add cool galleries and videos to your website or blog. You will also get to know about SEO and meta tags. The WordPress Crash Course winds up with a unit on WordPress themes, which make your sites and blogs look professional. You will also learn to customize and design your own themes.

Get up and running with this easy-to-follow guide to everything you need to know about WordPress, from installing your first blog to maintaining a website after launch.
