What you'll learn in this wordpress training:

Wordpress is awesome, but often misunderstood. Is it a blogging platform? A CMS? Should you buy a custom theme or develop your own? Wordpress.com vs. Wordpress.org?

In this course you’ll develop a custom site starting from scratch. Basically, you’ll take a static front-end HTML/CSS template and do all the necessary magic to have that site running live and dynamic using Wordpress.

Afterwards, your clients will be able to edit content themselves, manage the site’s navigation, and leverage an array of existing plug-ins that will help take the site from a simple blog to a fully functional CMS. All customizable; all on Wordpress.

Question from Angie
Hello, I would like to learn how to build a Wordpress site through my Bluehost account which is where my URL is hosted. It seems the setup for this is a little different to get it started, would this be covered in the class? Thanks! Angie
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Angie! This would be an OK fit. The goal of the boot camp is to give a holistic approach to many use cases with Wordpress. Hosting through a host like Bluehost will be covered as one of several scenarios. As long as the student understands that they may sit through more material than just that, they will probably get a lot out of the class. If they are only attending to get their site up and running, there may be a lot of extra material that doesn’t apply to them. Thank you.
