Create Websites with WordPress

Welcome to the Course

The goal of this course is to familiarize you with the WordPress platform from the perspective of a creator, educator or small business person building their first website with WordPress.

Getting a Quick Start with Sites on Our Network

If you are the self-starter type and want to get up and running quickly with your own site on our network you will find WordPress really easy to work with. Placing blocks for text and images and creating layouts is not very complex.

Quick Start posts:

  • How I made a website with Kadence (by Mike Simpson)
  • How to Optimize and Resize Images for WordPress (by Mike Simpson)

These two posts cover a lot of the basics. Within a few hours of playing around with WordPress and using blocks and template elements, you can have a page or two started. For a deeper look at WordPress from a wide perspective continue through this course. After completing the lessons you will have a deeper understanding of how WordPress works.
