WordPress 101 – Build and run your own website easily
WordPress has become the world’s most popular open source content management system for websites claiming to be installed on over 11% of the total websites today on the internet. Starting as a humble blog back in 2003, WordPress has now become a powerful tool to create a website and become the hub for your businesses’ online marketing efforts. This 101 workshop will introduce you to the ‘Wonderful World of WordPress’ including how to create your own starter website in minutes, working with themes, and becoming friendly with plugins, posts and pages. You’ll be introduced to WordPress managed hosting and be taken on a behind the scenes everyday users tour of WordPress. To finish off we’ll bust some common WordPress myths and point you in the direction to continue your WordPress journey.
This session will be presented by Todd Wright from Threesides. Todd started using WordPress in 2007 and is now a self-declared fan-boy of the platform. His business works with operators from across the Canberra region to help them develop and drive results for their business using their WordPress sites and will share what he has learnt (and continues to learn) from many other passionate WordPress users and nerds.
