WordPress course

Do you want to create a professional website or blog, but have no idea how or where to start? With our three-day WordPress training course you will not only learn to build the website from scratch, but also how to maintain it while in use and how to keep it up-to-date.

During the training you go through the different building phases step by step, starting with downloading and installing WordPress on a local laptop (the test environment). This gives you the opportunity to test various themes, plug-ins, widgets and updates of WordPress before uploading them to a production environment. You learn how to configure the website, how to place articles within categories, how to add a navigation menu and how to change the design. You will also learn how to link a sales module to your website, with payment options such as iDeal and PayPal. This way, you can turn your website into a web shop with just one click of the mouse.
