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 customizing our blog using sliders, widgets, header images and working with the customizer. You will also get the chance to optimize 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.
