Workshop [Communication] – Informal Beginner course in WordPress

WordPress is an online system to allow you to create websites. It is flexible and relatively easy to learn. If you get more technically skilled you can alter it one a more flexible level. It’s also easy to move your websites from one place to another. All of these reasons make it a good choice if you want to learn to make your own website or blog.

The host of this website building group will be Mick Chesterman who is a tech teacher and has also written a manual on WordPress.

  • Friday 5th Nov – 10.30 – 12.00
  • Friday 12th Nov – 10.30 – 12.00
  • Friday 19th Nov – 10.30 – 12.00
  • Friday 26th Nov – 10.30 – 12.00

This is an informal set of workshops. We will work at the same time to improve the website of the Todmorden Makery – which is a WordPress one.

You will also work on a website as you go along as a way of learning. This may be a real project or just a test bed to practice your skills in a hands on way.

A lot of each week will be spent trying things out and working independently or in small groups on your websites. But each week we will have a special focus on one particular element of setting up a word press site. Including the following.

  • Creating (blog) posts and adding Images and Links to them
  • Creating Information Pages and Navigation Menus
  • Altering the look of your site by changing themes and adding header images.
  • Using Widgets, calendars and other media.

Project Status: Confirmed and booking in progress
Project Outcome: A club of people who know more about WordPress and building websites
