What You Will Learn
√ INSTALL WORDPRESS
It’s fairly simple, if you know what you’re doing. Trouble is, when you’re first starting out you usually don’t. So, we’ll show you how.
√ CREATE PAGES
Remember when you first learned how to use a Word Processor? Well, WordPress has a similar way to enter text and graphics. But there is a learning curve.
√ THE MEDIA LIBRARY
It’s a handy feature of WordPress that lets you store media assets, like graphics and audio files, that you’ll need to build your website.
Make sure you’re protected if a Bad Guy targets your site for doom. A simple backup procedure can save your bacon if the worst happens.
√ CONFIGURE WORDPRESS
You need to customize WordPress, just like you need to customize your bedroom closet, or your fishing box. There are best practices…and worse.
√ CREATE POSTS
If you plan on blogging — and you probably should — you need to know how to create posts, categorize and tag them. The right way.
√ ADDING VIDEOS
Videos are so cool on a website. And, with WordPress, they are very easy to install. Copy a YouTube video URL address, or Vimeo, and paste into WordPress. It’s that simple.
√ SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION
There’s not much point putting up a site if people can’t find it. We’ll show you how to implement basic SEO practices that will put your site on the Internet map.
