WordPress is the most popular website software that allows you to build beautiful websites without any programming or coding.
This course shows you how to use the building blocks of WordPress to build your fully functional websites that you control and can update anytime by using any of the thousands FREE themes and plugins.
Having total control of what happens to your content, your followers or customers is the most important aspect of having a website.
This is why, I do not recommend anyone to have a FREE hosted website, because the hosting platform decides what happens to your website, in other words, you don't own your website.....they do.
If you learn to create your own website, the only costs for having a website will be for buying your own domain and the cost of hosting your website files with a web hosting platform.
This course is designed to show you step by step how to install WordPress, customize your website and create posts, pages and a navigation menu. It is designed to introduce you to using WordPress quickly without having to learn everything.
You will learn how to add a contact form so your website visitors can send you a message by email, it shows you the basics of creating your very own website that you can change the look of just by replacing one FREE theme with another.
With over 50 thousand free plugins, you can expand your website functionality beyond your needs.
If you can dream it....you can make it happen with WordPress.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone interested in learning WordPress to create their first website fast.
