Take your HTML & CSS skills to the next level, by mastering the worlds most popular content management system for building websites!
Master WordPress from scratch in a fun, project based approach.
This course is for anybody looking for a career building WordPress websites or themes, or even hobbyists looking to learn a new skill.
We begin the course by getting familiar with WordPress and looking at how to install using a localhost. We then look at the WordPress essentials such as blog posts, pages, navigation menus and installing themes, all while building your very own blog website.
Once we have the basics covered, we move onto customising our blog using sliders, widgets, header images and working with the customiser. You will also get the chance to optimise your website for search engines and create backups.
The second project takes your WordPress knowledge even further. We create a fully functional eCommerce T-Shirt store. More techniques are introduced throughout this project such as child themes, dealing with products, categories, shipping, taxes, all while building a beautiful, custom website.
After completing the first 2 projects, we move things on even further by introducing you to WordPress theme development by converting an existing HTML & CSS website to a fully functional WordPress theme. This section involves coding in PHP, however if you are new to PHP there is a PHP basics section to get you up to speed.
This project introduces new techniques and you will gain a deeper knowledge of how WordPress themes are created. You will learn how WordPress templates are used and learn about various WordPress functions to build our theme.
Finally, the last section will be focused on useful techniques to add to your WordPress knowledge. Here we will cover exporting your localhost websites to a live server, various plugins etc.
All images and files etc you will need is included to download, there is also need no extra software, subscriptions or purchases etc to complete or take this course.
So are you ready to take your web design or WordPress skills to the next level?

Hello, My name is Chris and I am a web developer and online teacher. I am passionate about what I do and about teaching others. I have started various online and offline businesses.
Whatever your reason for learning to build websites you have made an excellent career choice.
My personal motivation was to become my own boss and have more freedom and flexibility in my life. I also enjoy the technical challenge it provides and the way it constantly evolves. I built my first website back in 1999 and i have watched the web evolve into what it is today.
I try to make my courses enjoyable and try to remember what it was like when I was learning. I also believe the best way to learn is by doing and try to include as many practical examples as possible in my courses.
Thanks for taking an interest and I look forward to you joining me.
