This basic WordPress course is perfect for anyone getting started with WordPress. We cover all of the basics from A-Z, with plenty of time for Q&A, as well as working side-by-side with you on your own site. Topics covered in this course are:
What WordPress is, and how it works

How to manage images
Pictures make a site more interesting. And while WordPress makes it easy to add images, it may not be clear how to get the image to show up the right size, in the right place, with the right caption, and whether it should link (or not) to a page, the full size image, or show the full-sized version in a lightbox.
How to manage comments
Comments are usually used for blogging purposes, and can be turned on or off at any time. Learn whether you should or shouldn’t use comments, how to enable them site-wide or on a post-by-post basis. Get the inside scoop on how to remove comments site-wide quickly and easily.
Sidebars, Widgets, and Themes
One of the most flexible, and confusing areas of WordPress are sidebars and widgets. Understanding how to use your sidebars and widgets will greatly empower you to add more functionality to your WordPress website and do more over time. Themes are the design and the look of your website, and often include specific functionality.
Your site settings can either work against you or for you – we’ll walk you through how to set the site settings so that you understand what they are, and what they should be set to for your site.
