If you know HTML and CSS and want to gain more control over WordPress, this is the class for you.
WordPress lets you do a lot without having to code, but there are some things that only web developers (who know how to code) can do, or it may be easier/better to do with code
In this class you’ll learn how to install WordPress on your local computer for editing and testing code. You’ll learn how to use code to customize parts of WordPress, work with themes, edit CSS, and more. You’ll gain a more thorough understanding of what WordPress does behind the scenes and how to work with it.
Knowledge of PHP is a plus, but is not required to take this class.
If you’re not a coder, and simply want to learn how to use WordPress to edit and manage content, you should look at our WordPress: Create a Website or Blog class.
For website designers who demand a high degree of control in their applications, this is a great way to learn what is involved in creating the interface and themes in WordPress.
Nate was a fantastic instructor. There were different skill levels in our class and he was able to navigate through the content without boring or overwhelming anyone. He was incredibly patient and knowledgeable.
The two-day WordPress course with Nate Cooper was fantastic. I left the class inspired and ready to dive into the WordPress world. Thanks.
The WordPress.org class paid for itself before the end of the class. I was able to make changes on our website that would have cost three times the cost of the class.
Dark Arts Consulting
To understand WordPress, this is the class to get you in the door. So many useful concepts shown and explained. After this class, you will be able to build a solid WordPress website.
A great class for people who want to help their clients with WordPress and understand how it works under the hood. An essential class.
This class was awesome. It taught me just what I wanted to know: how to create a fresh WP installation, turn CSS that I write into templates, and manage and move files to and from a server.
