WordPress 101 + Plus
Monday, June 4th 6:30 to 9:30pm
Evening Workshop, 3 hours hands-on WP website instruction,
Are you wanting to do your own website cheaply and easily without having to rely on an expert? Do you have your own domain? Have you already looked at WordPress and wondered if it is as easy as they say? With a little help even a technophobe can make a beautiful looking WordPress website. Join Joe Griffith for WordPress 101 PLUS to make it fast and easy and hands on! See more specific details below.
THE +PLUS TO THIS WORKSHOP is it works on two tracks, two speeds, all for newbies, but also a little faster for the keeners in the group. You will also have follow along handouts and modules for easy learning.
This workshop requires you to:
- Bring your laptop (fully charged)
- NOT necessary to have already downloaded the free and basic WordPress open source software at http://wordpress.org/download/ but beneficial if you do.
- NOT necessary to have a domain name with all your passwords and full administrative access (so you can work on the site), but beneficial if you do.
WHEN: Monday June 4th, 2012, 6:30 – 9:30pm
WHERE: #300 – 755 Burrard Street PLI (1.5 blocks from Burrard Skytrain Station) room 6
COST: All this for an amazing price of $57 before May 23rd
After May 23rd = $77, less than the cost of many a web expert’s time.
More details about WordPress 101 +:
You must have a fully charged laptop that is WiFi enabled. You should have WordPress already installed on your hosting service. You should have full access to your site and be able to manage it. If you do not have hosting, or you do not have WordPress already installed, don’t worry we have a solution.
and the Settings area. And yes, even though I promise to keep the techie jargon to a minimum, we’ll need to
learn some basic terminology — after all, what the heck is a plugin anyway?
