WordPress powers roughly 40% of the sites on the web. It is an amazing tool to help you design and manage your content but it can be daunting to learn until you get to “thinking like the program”. This class and the ones to follow are designed to be hand’s on so participants can be building or working on their own sites as we go along. In this class you’ll learn the pros and cons of using the self-hosted version of WordPress vs. the online WordPress.com version. Learn how to choose and register a domain name, how to choose a hosting provider, how to install WordPress onto your self-hosting server and begin to explore a theme or look for your site. Upon completion, you will know the steps to be up and running for the start of the WordPress Level 1 class. You are welcome to bring a WiFi capable laptop or use one of the college’s computers.
Prerequisite: Basic computer and Internet skills.
