WordPress 101 at UNH

WordPress 101

This workshop is designed to help you get started in creating and managing a responsive website and/or blog using the WordPress web publishing platform.

WordPress 101 will start with a basic overview of WordPress with discussion on installing it for the first time, how it works, and navigating the back-end dashboard. You will learn how to add content and media through posts and pages, how to add functionality with plugins and widgets, and how to change the look and feel with various themes.

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to start a blog, publish their first website, or who may have "inherited” the responsibility of managing a WordPress site at their place of employment.  Beginners with little to no technical WordPress experience are welcome.
