Full Description
Installing WordPress and creating a blog is simple, but what about creating your entire library site using WordPress? There is much more  to WordPress than picking a pretty theme and adding a few posts.  This workshop, geared toward librarians who have a basic understanding of WordPress, will walk librarians through customizing their library websites with this tool. Attendees will get hands on experience that they can take back to their libraries to help redesign their websites. Workshop participants will also receive flash drives with their own WordPress installation, so they may continue working with the content management system after the workshop.
 
By the end of this program, participants will:
• Know how to find and install Plugins
• Have a list of Plugins to help turn WordPress into a powerful CMS
• Make minor edits to template files
• Configure custom themes to meet their library's needs
• Use WordPress Menus to organize pages and posts
