DIY WordPress Website Workshops

A full day workshop where you will come out with your own live website and know how to manage it yourself without breaking your budget. You will go from concept and planning to a live website in one day!

In a small, fun, friendly and supportive group environment we will cover:

 Planning and getting clear on your websites purpose

How to set up a self-hosted version of WordPress

 Navigating around the WordPress system

Choosing and installing themes and plugins to make your website personalised to your needs

  Basic customisation & styling tips to make it look fab

Maintaining your website yourself

Recommended resources for support and extra features, to help you move forward

Before the day you will be given some preparation work and added to a private Facebook group for support before and after the course. I will be available on there to ask questions and will also post things I think might be useful like plugins and other resources. There will also be the chance to book onto smaller group follow-up sessions to work through more intermediate level WordPress development for your website.

Workshops are full day from 10am – 4.30pm and include refreshments all day plus a wholesome lunch and cakes (we will definitely need the cakes!).
