What is a WordPress Workshop?
WordPress is the world leading open source content management system. In short, we think it’s the best platform for building websites. However, this feature-rich platform can be intimidating if you’re not familiar with website management, and this workshop will help you to get started.

What does this Introduction to WordPress Workshop include?

In this session we’ll be your one-to-one guide, teaching you how to create pages and posts, how to format your content using the built in tools and themes; how to troubleshoot in the event that something goes wrong on your website; and how to effectively update your website for optimal performance.
During the workshop, we’ll discuss best practices for optimising your website for search engines using WordPress plugins and other techniques. We’ll take you through important safety and security aspects and talk you through the best way to protect your website and your visitors from cyber threats.
There are many important elements to managing your website using WordPress, and we’re the first to admit that you can’t learn it all in a day. However, we’ll work with you to understand your needs and put together an agenda that incorporates as many elements as possible, to make sure you get the most out of your time with us.
