Computer Skills Workshops

 Introduction to WordPress

Date and Time TBA. Drop us a line to be notified of the next session

A step by step demonstration of how to use the free site building platform at WordPress.com to create a quality web site no coding knowledge required. Your WordPress site can be set up with:

Your own color scheme and background images
Gallery or slideshow
Event calendar
A Blog
Social networking links (Facebook, Twittter, etc…)
Paypal buttons to sell goods and services or accept donations
A Contact form

WordPress.com offers all of these things free of charge and is a great starting place for an individual or small business web site. If you want to use your own domain (yourdomainname.com) it costs only $18.per year. Additional features such as custom fonts are available for a low annual fee.

If in the future you find yourself outgrowing your WordPress.com site and needing more robust functionality such as a full-featured shopping cart, you’ll be able to export your site and and install it on a private hosting service using the code offered at WordPress.org.

Bring your wireless enabled laptop to the workshop and you can have your own site set up when you leave.
