Both classes will begin at 10AM. We’ll have a one hour lunch break and 2 15 minute breaks each day. Class will end at 5:30 PM.
What You Will Need For This Class
I will provide you with a WordPress site to practice what you learn.
Eventually you will want your own web hosting service to set up your site. I recommend that you use Bluehost, so let me tell you more about this service.
Circle America is the site I use to demonstrate many of the features of WordPress during the class. It may not look like much but it is loaded with goodies to get us started.
Download this zip file which provides some the copy, images and videos needed to make the Circle America site.
My Super Duper Resources
The first two of these resources I have created so you know they are really good. 🙂 The last two are services that I love and yes, I do get a small commission for making the recommendation. But I would make the recommendation even if I didn’t get any moolah for it.
- My Plugins List
My more or less up to date list of plugins that I have used.
- Beginners’ Guide To Using The HTML Text Editor
I write this baby so you have to LIKE it.
The web hositng company I have used for over 5 years.
- WP Apprentice
Learn more WordPress beyond this class with high quality professional videos. I also work with the owner of this service, Kirk Biglione.
The Standard Stuff
The net is choking with a gazillion WP resources. Here are a few that I picked for you and that I use too.
The WordPress Mother Ship
- Getting Started With WordPress
A PDF that I did not create which is as good a starting point for learning WP as I’ve seen.
- WordPress.org Support
Includes the online manual for WordPress which is a must if you are serious about learning WP. Where I started years ago.
- WordPress TV
Sort of a YouTube site just for WordPress. I’m in there somewhere.
THE place to go for WordPress Themes
- Elegant ThemesThe name says it all.
You hardly need to use the free theme I am using in our class.
These are the names of some great free themes you can use to experiment with:
- GeneratePress (what I sue in class)
- Times Square
- Zerif Lite
And there are thousands more to choose from at WordPress.org Themes and elsewhere.
These are the main plugins I’ll demonstrate or discuss during the class.
- AddToAny/Share Buttons
- Akismet Anti-spam
- Atomic Blocks – Gutenberg Blocks Collection
- Broken Link Checker
- Maps Block for Gutenberg
- NextGEN Gallery
- Ninja Forms
- Per page ahed
- Title Remover
- Update Notifier
All of these plugins are available at the WordPress Plugins Repository.
These aren’t free unless you’re having a very lucky day.
