Essential WordPress: How to Use, Install, Customize, Extend, and Manage WordPress
Mondays, July 15 & 22, 2013 - 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day


WordPress is an open source publishing platform for blogs and websites. However, its flexible and powerful plugin system allows users to do much more than that. For example, you can turn WordPress into a digital library program, or a content management system. Nowadays, many libraries and museums are using WordPress to deliver their services. In this intensive hands-on workshop, we will start from beginner level, and through step-by-step in-class exercises and demonstration, move on to intermediate level. We will cover installation, configuration, optimization, users and content management, themes, plugins, widgets, and other advanced features.
