Event Details

Dive into the wonderful world of Wordpress with this overview class that

introduces the main features of the popular blogging software as well as
highlights its extended capabilities.  The class is presented in two
sessions in a single long afternoon with a 15 minute snack break in the

Part 1
We'll go through a basic blog setup on a host server, as well as the
Wordpress user-interface.  Then we'll coast into Wordpress themes and
offer a brief explanation of the pro's and con's of building with a free
versus a premium theme, and brief details on how and why you might want to
learn to edit the CSS of your theme directly.  Finally we'll move on to a
practical toolkit of recommended plug-ins that will help you move more
seamlessly from staging to launch.

Part 2
Once you get your blog up and running, you must maintain and publicize. 
Of course, given that "there's a plug-in for that"-- you can do even more.
Part two talks to blog tweaking that helps you position your blog to an
advertiser, drive traffic, add community tools, integrate e-commerce,
streamline your content for iPhone or iPad presentation and more.

Brought to you by Astrida Valigorsky, a NYCR member who has been building
Wordpress customizations for a variety of clients since 2006.

Class hours 1-5pm with a 15 minute snack break at the middle.
