    Very good for total beginners on WP

    If you are just starting with WP this tutorial will give you good info to hit the ground running asap.

    • Franck Rafiou

    It's Good for Novice to start being self sufficient

    I really enjoyed the course because it allowed me to really understand where to find stuffs in WP or how to install WP on bluehost. I don't understand people saying the course is boring. Come on guys have you ever been in school? Rate the course by it's content not by your emotional attachment to it. If you search some kind of shortcuts on how to create a website and some sort of hand-in-hand how to guide, this course is NOT for you. It basically shows you how to host a website & how to start using wordpress. After the course, you start being selfsufficient. Philip Ebiner, Thank you for the values in your course and I unfortunately already had a domain so I couldn't start by using your affiliate Link.

    Very good for Wordpress Newbies, especially if using BlueHost

    I was prompted to purchase and view this course for two reasons. 1. I am from the Joomla CMS platform but very recently decided to switch over and focus on Wordpress, and 2. I just purchased a Bluehost account only days before seeing this course, and so I figured this would be helpful. I was right, it was very well paced, iformative, and overall helpful for a person new to Wordpress. I appreciated that the instructor spoke clearly, and concise and and at a very good pace. Admittedly on your part you mention how you did not exactly go into extreme detail, but honestly, you accomplished the purpose in the title, in my opinion. I would recommend this course to a new Wordpress user even if he/she were not going to be using Bluehost. Now, if I may say this one thing, which prevented the five star rating. You really need to be a bit closer to your screen. At times it was a bit difficult to see exactly the things you were clicking on such as when you were discussing pages and posts. I managed but it was a little difficult. Overall, great job! I look to see more of your courses.

    • Desiree Lauterbach

    Covered a little bit everything in setup of Bluehost & WP.

    Good overview of the setup process of Bluehost and WP. Even explained WP.com vs WP.org that so many leave out. Not a comprehensive WP course but perfect for setup and the basics.

    • Sandy Dobbs

    Just what I was looking for!

    I already had Bluehost (which is a great hosting service), and had previously used Dreamweaver to create a basic site for something else. I wanted to create a blog site with WordPress because of how easy I had heard it was. This tutorial was GREAT - showed me how to it install it and get it going. I particularly liked the explanation between paid and free themes.
